I mentioned in yesterday's post that the scarecrow image was my favorite from the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set.  I love this image because it's not just for Halloween.  This is a great fall image!

The card I'm sharing with you today is one that we made at my Stamp Club last month.

This card started with an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Mint Macaron card base folded in half and then was layered with a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Very Vanilla that was embossed using the new Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  This new folder is amazing!  It is so life-like ... it really looks like a cable knit sweater.  Tip:  I have found that SNAIL (or tape-runner type) adhesive does not work well when trying to adhere card stock that has been embossed with the new Cable Knit embossing folder.  The impressions are so deep that it doesn't get down into all of the crevices.  I used the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

You can really see the dimension of the embossing folder in the photo above ... and the ones coming up!  On top of the embossed Very Vanilla, I used two different patterns from the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series paper.  The first piece is cut at 3" x 3 1/2".  Then the smaller strip is 3" x 3/4".  Again, I would recommend using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue when adhering to the embossed piece of Very Vanilla.  

The scarecrow was stamped in Memento Black ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla and colored using the following markers:  Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze and Soft Suede.  After coloring he was punched out using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  The crow was also stamped on Very Vanilla with the Memento Black and cut out by hand.

I cut a piece of the 5/8" Burlap ribbon, used my Paper Snips to cut between the threads to fray it a little and then adhered it to the back of my scarecrow using SNAIL.  I cut a Very Vanilla oval using the Layering Ovals Framelits dies and stamped the cute sentiment at the bottom using the Memento Black ink.  The crow and scarecrow were then adhered to the oval using Stampin' Dimensionals.

What a fun fall card!  If you love these cute characters as much as I do, you'll definitely want to get the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set along with your Cookie Cutter Christmas class!  Registration ends Wednesday, so contact me now to sign up!
