DRU - Backyard Tree

For my inspiration card this week, I have chosen to stick with a fall card.  I decided to make it a clean and simple card that you can make in an hour of your time.  I used dies from the Dies R Us store to complete it.
To make this card, I used these dies

 Impression Obsession - Dies - Picket FenceIO Picket Fence DIE 206
 Memory Box - Dies - Arboscello TreeMemory Box Arboscello Tree

I cut both dies and then put some flower soft on the leaves of the tree.  Do you remember flower soft?  It comes in many colors and I chose the one that looks like fall leaves.  I created a sun in the background with a sponge dauber and some yellow and raspberry ink. With my copic marker  I sketched in some ground for the tree and also put in some fallen leaves there.  Next the fence is popped up with some foam squares.  A simple, Hello makes it useful for any type of card.  That is it!  Clean and Simple.

I hope you're inspired by today's project.  Don't forget to join in on all the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

Thanks for you comments, they certainly make my day better.  


  1. I love your beautiful Fall scene. Great design to your card and love those leaves.

  2. Gorgeous fall scene. Love both dies.

  3. This card is amazing and all things Fall! I love it! The tree is stately and flower soft looks so realistic! This makes me think of walking trails and crunchy leaves beneath my feet. Such a beautiful Autumn scene! Great dies!
