Sofia's Give Thanks Card

Got go have more stamping fun over the weekend, so I decided to make the Give Thanks card that my stampin' 'sister' Sofia made last year for our fall team swap.  I didn't have the frame/border stamp that she used around the Give Thanks sentiment, so I had to alter her design a little.  She used Pumpkin Pie and Really Rust inks along with Old Olive and Chocolate Chip, so I updated the colors and used Cajun Craze in place of Really Rust, and swapped out the Pumpkin Pie for More Mustard.  Cajun Craze card stock replaced the Really Rust that Sofia had used on her card.  Once again, I cut down her card to 5 1/4 by 5 1/4 inches so it would fit into an envelope.  I'll be bringing this card back next time for stamp camp as several of my stampers could only stay for a little while last time we got together, and several asked me to bring this one again.


I love the rich colors on this card, and I'm so glad I bought the Autumn Splendor set last year.  It was one of those 'gee, do I really need ANOTHER fall leaf stamp set' decisions, and I'm glad I ended up getting this set afterall!

I love Autumn Leaves, too, Cheryl, and what your friend did with it is so pretty! Love how she layered her sentiment, too. . . .

The layering of the sentiment was actually my modification to Sofia's card - glad you liked it, Holly!
