Project Information

Let your Cricut do most of the work with these silhouette cards!  While it cuts all the silhouettes out of one piece of 12x12 paper, have fun choosing the patterned paper you'll use for the card bases and envelopes!

Choose your favorite and make several of one design or make all four.  Your friends and family will love getting such a festive handmade card from you!

Design Tips

  • Ink the edges of your cards with a black ink pad for a nice touch.
  • Tie festive ribbons around each card.  We used ribbon from Michaels - about 15" per card.
  • For the spider, we added black glitter to his legs and used small red sticky gemstones for his eyes to make him more interesting and frightening.

Paper Suggestions

We used Spook Alley by Making Memories and the black and white Halloween paper pad by Martha Stewart Crafts for ours, but honestly almost any patterned Halloween paper will look great!  Cut out your black silhouettes first and then hold them in front of various Halloween papers to see how they look.

    I can’t wait to get going on these cards. I wish there was a way I could print the dimensions chart above.
