I ♥ This Scarecrow

Happy Fall, Y'All!

Remember the fun little punch-art dog card you saw on my blog a few days ago? I made it for my daughter's roommate. She had actually requested that I make a card for her with a black dog on it, because she has a black dog.

Well, I got to thinking....... it's just not right to send a card to one of my daughter's roommates and not the other. So I was talking to my daughter on the phone and mentioned that, and she said, "Now Anna wants you to send her a card, too." She suggested an autumn card would be good.

So I searched my stamps and found an adorable scarecrow. GASP! This stamp was still waiting to see ink - and no telling how long ago I purchased it. Soooooo he called out to me. "If I only had some ink!" I'd found the stamp - and promptly stamped an image.




What I discovered is that this particular stamped image is quite large and doesn't leave much room on a card for anything else. So I came up with a rather unique fold - I'm not sure if there really is such a fold, but I made one. You'll notice in the following photo that the piece the image is on is the only part of the card that opens. I thought it worked out pretty well that way, allowing a little bit of the designer paper to show on the front of theh card, and then getting a better view of it when the image opens up.






I hope Anna will like this card! I am so glad that my daughter has friends in her life!
