A Touch of Fall

Happy Thursday everyone! Robin here with my inspiration of the week for Dies R Us, your on line super store for dies! Maybe I was just wishing but when I went for my walk this morning I thought there was a touch of Fall in the air. Who knows; maybe I just want this drought we are having finally OVER!

I started with a tall vertical card base with a bottom opening. The beautiful tree die I used is Memory Box Yorkshire Tree and Yorkshire Tree Background. The tree was cut from kraft card stock and I used a pattern paper for the leaves. After adhering the the two parts of the tree together I placed the tree on a contrast green card stock that I machine stitched along the edges. The tree layer was placed on the card base using 3D foam. I stamped the sentiment on a homemade label, added bakers twine and finished the card with nail heads.

I hope you have enjoyed my design for the week and please visit all our Design Team members weekly inspirations.
