Thankful for a Friend Like You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from SugarPea DesignsThe weather is miserable here--both rainy and cold--so it's perfect for staying in, watching college football, and making lots of cards, of course! I'm starting off the day by sharing this card made with stamps and dies from SugarPea Designs.  The layout is based on the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

I used the SugarCuts-Stitched Autumn Icons dies and scraps of earth toned cardstock to cut out several different autumn shapes.  The pumpkin, acorn, and leaf were arranged on a cream panel cut with one of the SugarCuts-Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles dies.  To add a little texture to the card, I wrapped a little twine behind the pumpkin and acorn.  The "thankful for a friend like you" sentiment from the Nuts About You set was stamped next to the images in brown ink.  I matted the panel on mustard cardstock, then adhered it to a dark brown card base.

Materials Used:
Nuts About You stamp set, SugarCuts Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles and Stitched Autumn Icons dies (SugarPea Designs); Memento Rich Cocoa ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard, and Chocolate Chip cardstock (Stampin' Up!); twine (Hemptique); foam tape
