Happy Thanksgiving- Farm Harvest Card

Hello, Friends!! I'm back with Team Pink with another adorable project! 
I am so glad that the summer heat is dying down. It hasn't gone down that much here in Texas and we still have weather in the low to mid 90's but that is far cooler than the nasty 114-118 temps we've had during the height of summer... Um, Thanks but NO THANKS... I think I'll stay my behind inside!

By next month for sure, we should feel a significant temperature drop. And then HELLLOOOO Fall!!

Then we know what that means... it's time to prep for the one day it's acceptable to gorge till we pass out! THANKSGIVING!! YES!!

And because of this occasion, I decided to make this adorable Scarecrow Farm Harvest card.

Pink & Main Supplies Used

Other Supplies Used
Mega Runner (Xyron)
Black Cardstock (Recollections)
Happy Day Stack (DCWV)
Mixed Media Paper (Strathmore)
VersaFine Ony Black Ink (Tsukineko/ Imagine Crafts)
Tim Holtz Distress Markers (Ranger)
White Pigment Ink
Polka Dot Satin Ribbon

I made a 6x6 card using the brown plaid paper from Pink and Main's Pumpkin Spice and the blue cloud patterned paper from the Take Flight paper pad.

Paper Measurements
Brown Plaid: 6" x 6"
Black Cardstock: 5-5/8"x  5-5/8"
Cloud Pattern: 5-1/2" x 5-1/2"
Green Strip: 1-1/2" x 5-1/2" 

 I used Eileen Hull's House Pocket die to create the little barn in the background.  I just added 2 doors instead of one and I cut 1/8" strip from white cardstock and formed X's over the front and layered them on white rectangles that were 1/8" bigger than the doors. Then use o small window laid sideways for the top window the barn.

I attached the barn onto the front of the card using my Mega Runner. Then layered my stamped images in front. First applied the corn stalks then added the scarecrows on top, adding foam adhesive to the backs for added dimension. Then I topped off with a row of pumpkins, again adding foam to the backs for even more dimension.

Lastly, I adhered the whole card front to a 6"x6" mustard yellow card base. Then stamped the phrase Happy Thanksgiving from the Turkey Day Stamp set onto the barn using white pigment ink.

And here is the finished card...

And then... at the very last minute, even after all the picture taking was done, I decided to add a bow... LOL hahaha, I love where creativity takes me!

 Hope you enjoyed this card... and the newfound fall weather!!

Happy crafting, my friends!!
