Hi everyone, Deanna here with another inspirational project for Dies R Us.  Here is what I have for you today.

I started with a Kraft colored card stock that was cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.

Next I took a piece of 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" Distress Water Color card stock and using distress inks I created a fall leaf colored background. Distress inks I used included Rusty Hinge, Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon and Abandon Coral.  After I had the background created I die cut it using the Tutti Designs Maple Vine Frame. I love how it turned out.  Next I cut the word Thanks using the Die-Versions Curly Words Die.

Here's a TIP for you: When cutting fragile word dies, cut them multiple times and glue them together. This makes them sturdier and adds dimension to the word.  I cut my Thanks word 4 times and adhered them together before adding them to my card.
