Whew, I made it with all my Halloween Cards this year! This was not the last of the cards that I made. But I thought I'd share it with you today as it would also made a fun Thanksgiving, or just a fall-themed, card!
I had a lot of fun making this card. In fact, this little scarecrow was the ONLY reason I bought the stamp set, Cookie Cutter Halloween. The little crow is cute, too, and I might even add him to a few fall-themed cards during November. The the rest of the stamps in the set are lying there unused. I may hold onto them until next year. We'll see.
The best thing about Mr. Scarecrow is that he's so much fun to color. With the bits of shading throughout, I'm sure you must recognize that I used alcohol markers to color him. They are just the best, and I do hope that Stampin' Up! is able to find some to include in its catalog again some year. But for now, I'm using my slowly-growing collection of Copic Markers, including these that I used for this little guy. Oh, and I punched him out using the Holiday Catalog's Cookie Cutter Builder Punch!
I'm sure you recognize the paper I used for the top background layer. It's one of the sheets from the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper set. As there is not actually a Halloween design on this sheet – or on several of the other sheets, I'll be using this paper for projects up to and including Thanksgiving. So it won't go to waste for sure!
I accented the Pumpkin Pie color of the paper with Dapper Denim Cardstock. I think it really adds a country touch to the overall look of the card. And I also made good use of the Layering Ovals Framelits Set, counting 4 different sizes in this card. Oooooh, wait until tomorrow when I get to show off pictures of Stampin' Up!'s newest product line. Woo-hoo, my order will be in as early as possible!
So that's it for Halloween 2016! Have great fun if you're going out Trick-or-Treating with the kiddos, or just waiting for them to knock at your door. We don't get to do either as we live in a rural area where the houses are far apart as well as down long driveways from the main street. Besides that, there are only two children in the whole neighborhood! Sniff. I miss Trick or Treat (well, the treat part of it).
