I like making cards for friends and family and Autumn is the best time to send some cheer. It is no secret that my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving with the parade, a special breakfast, calling friends and family for cheerful wishes, the aroma of baking turkey and dressing, and a full day of football along with the anticipation of the holiday season beginning. Naturally, I have been sending Thanksgiving cards for years. It is fun to send a few just to say happy fall too. I begin with pulling out my tub of Autumn related stamps, some fall color papers and inks, and a few stickers and other fall inspired elements, all from Impression Obsession.

I love this sentiment from the Pumpkin Kisses set. This set is discontinued, but there are some great new ones on the Impression Obsession website. The sentiment is stamped in orange ink with an orange frame, mounted on a leaf print paper then placed on a rust color bar. Sometimes simple is elegant.
Inside a sentiment of Pumpkin Kisses. This sentiment is available separately now in a slightly different look.
There are some wonderful Autumn Inspired stamps new this season. I used the same design as the card above, just changing the sentiment and frame color for a second card. Inside it says Happy Thanksgiving. This time I add a leaf sticker as an accent.
A burgundy card says “So Very Thankful”, with a personal sentiment inside. I used another leaf sticker here, too.
Using elements cut from cards received is a great way to recycle. For this one, I cut out a lovely pair of pine cones that had glitter accents. It is placed on a horizontal bar of gold with the sentiment stamped on one side. Small pumpkins are stamped below.
For this card, I used the leaves and acorns from the Seasonal Background Cube. I stamped it several times all over, using two colors of ink. The Autumn Is a Second Spring sentiment is framed in rust and mounted on a horizontal strip of gold and rust color paper.
