Scarecrow Kisses and Autumn Wishes



Hi and welcome, everyone! I can't begin to tell you all how excited I am about Autumn being upon us. Autumn brings so many amazing things, crisp leaves, chilly mornings, corn mazes, pumpkin carving, Halloween and Scarecrow Kisses
I've, personally, never had a scarecrow kiss but if it's half as cute as the Autumn Wishes Scarecrow it can't be all bad, right?  






CARD BASE:

Score an 8.5"x 11" piece of cream cardstock at 5.5" and fold on the scored line. Cut at 4.25" to create two tent fold card bases.


LAYERS:
Using the solid brown cardstock cut to 4.125" x 5.375" , cut patterned paper (polka dots) to 4.00" x 5.25", die-cut brown cardstock using medium die from Crazy Stitch Frame Dies, die-cut green cardstock using the banner die from Mix-It up Dies, die-cut orange glitter paper using Scribble Circle Dies, die-cut scarecrow, acorn, and leaf using the Autumn Wishes Dies. 

STAMPING AND COLORING:
Using an acrylic block or stamping tool stamp your image onto the scarecrow, acorn, and leaf die-cuts using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink. Stamp sentiment onto banner die-cut using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink. 
Color using COPICS.

ASSEMBLING:
Layer brown cardstock onto the cream card base, layer patterned paper onto brown cardstock, layer brown die-cut cardstock onto patterned paper, layer green banner, orange glitter paper onto die-cut brown cardstock, using 3D Square Mounting Foams add scarecrow, acorn, and leaf.
