Here we are at the last challenge of the year and as the last challenge, we are running it for the next 3 weeks. The final challenge is totally open and anything goes. I made an adorable little “Woof” dog card (SVG) designed by The Cutting Cafe.

I used the SVG cut file from The Cutting Cafe and my Cricut Air Explore machine to make the card. I cut various dog themed papers from my stash, plus to stamped dogs to decorate.

For this week’s Challenge at C.R.A.F.T., we are looking for a shaker card. I went a little overboard and created a Treat Cup card and filled it with candies that “shake”. The template SVG files are from The Cutting Cafe: Halloween Treat Cup Cards. There are three fabulous card designs: spider, pumpkin and ghost. If you don’t have a cutting machine, they also include a PDF that you can print a cut out by hand. I simply followed the directions, using my Cricut Explore Air, papers from my stash, candy and a little paint and viola! The card even comes with a special envelop box.
