Quick and Easy Birdhouse Garden

If you need a quick card and want it to look like you spend a lot of time on it, take a look at this one.
Over on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog you will find this one. 
 Just using one die from Tutti Designs, I made this colorful and dimensional card.

This die is so intricate and cuts so easily that I cut it twice.  First out of white, and then again out of brown card stock.  Just as you see here.  I used some markers to color up the flowers and the grass the way that I liked them.  Then I adhered the bird houses in place on the white layer.  After that, I put on a nice coat of Glossy accents.  You should let that dry nicely before adding it to any card base that you like.  I used some foam tape to pop them out.  This was all so easy to do and I love how this looks.  It can be used for any occasion too. I cut a few more bird houses and left them in the package to use in the future.  I am sure that will happen soon.

The team at Dies R Us is working hard to give you some inspiration every day, so be sure to stop by and let them inspire you to create your own beautiful projects.
