Colors of Fall


Hi and thanks for your visit! I love the colors of Fall and enjoy making cards with a Fall theme. I was excited to receive the Cricut Simply Scarecrow cartridge so of course I had to choose a scarecrow for my card! Card is 5" x 6 1/2" and layered with same size patterned paper.
Cricut cartridges:
Simply Scarecrow-- Lady scarecrow is cut 4". Crow is 1.75". Three images of the crow are available on this cut but I used only the larger one. Fall is cut 1.25". These cuts were done on the Expression2.
Wrap It Up - Page 45 - Fence is cut 4 3/4". My first cuts of the fence and grass were 5" which put the fence a bit too wide for the card. I resized and cut 4 3/4" for the fence, but used the 5" cut for the grass.
Stretch Your Imagination - Page 44 - Pumpkins cut 1 1/2" and 1" using the blackout function.
Page 48 - Leaves were cut using varying sizes.
Cuttlebug:
Distressed Stripes on the fence and  Divine Swirls on the pumpkins!
I used lots of inking, 1/8" and 1/4" pop dots for the dimension, buttons, and raffia for the bows.

Challenges:
Celebrate the Occasion - Ch 36 Fall
Cooking With Cricut - Ch 57 Scarecrow, Hay, Crows and sketches.
Paper Playtime - Ch 58 Say It With Sentiment, and use buttons and bows
2 Sisters Challenge - Pumpkin Patch -must include a pumpkin
