Here's my Everything Fall Card
I chose the Happy Scenes stamp set and the coordinating Hearth & Home Framelit Dies for my card. From the first time I laid eyes on this Window Framelit, I knew I wanted to make a shaker card. I started with a Tangelo Twist A2 card base. I added a layer of 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" piece of Soft Suede Cardstock. My top layer is Very Vanilla with the bottom portion Happy Haunting DSP. I cut the window out twice in Soft Suede cardstock so that I could cut some of it off to use as a chair rail to seperate the Vanilla top and the plaid/wallpaper bottom. The scene was created on Very Vanilla cardstock and was colored in with Stampin' Markers and blender pens. The sky portion was sponged in with Soft Sky and Daffodil Delight in the upper right corner. I adhered the Window Sheet to the back of the window die cut and added two layers of Foam tape so that I had plenty of room for some Pretty Pink Posh yellow, orange, and gold sequins.
The sentiment also from Happy Scenes was curved on the acrylic block before stamping in Tangelo Twist onto the Very Vanilla Cardstock. I cut the two lines apart and banner cut the ends to layer in the upper left corner of the window. The pumpkin at the bottom of the wall was punched from three small ovals with the edges sponged with Soft Suede Ink. I hand cut a little stem from Soft Suede cardstock to glue to the back of the pumpkin and then adhered it to my card with dimensionals.
For my project I had a dilema. I knew I wanted to make a scarecrow treat box for my Granddaughters. I made two different kinds and I'll let you decide which you prefer. First I had a Curvy Keepsake Scarecrow Box and then a Fry Box Scarecrow. What would be your pick?
Since I didn't have any raffia on hand, I can tell you that the Fringe Scissors were awesome for making the scarecrow's hair. For the fry box I even put a little gift tissue paper in the box and used the fringe scissors on it!
