Shak'em Up Baby!

Hello there, welcome back to my blog for another post for The Cutting Cafe!!  These week we are playing with Halloween Shaker Cards!!  I gotta tell ya, this card was a lot of fun to "think up" in my head but when I got ready to pull it together it nearly drove me "batty", literally!!  LOL!!  The file itself was NOT the issue, it was ALL me and my obsessiveness!!  Luckily for me, I had plenty of time to play around and I do love the end result!

I used a clear sheet to print my sentiment on a laser printer; this ensured the ink would run later.  I pulled images from Halloween Bag Toppers file together to create my shaker card.  The spider webs I added at the very end because I really felt like it need something extra.

Can you see the shimmer on the web?  That paper is so cool, one side is dull and the other
side is shimmery, I just love it!!

I gave my bats some glowing eyes using orange and yellow bling from my stash, the little bat on the bottom left is popped up off the surface of the card, he looks like his about to take off!!

I finished up the inside using a plain orange sheet of card stock, and that black shimmered side of the paper die cut with my Martha Stewart "Goo" punch.

For someone who doesn't really care for Halloween (other than the fact its a week after my birthday) I love, love, love how my card turned out!!
