Matchbook Card




These were my first 2 attempts at Matchbook style cards. I just bought a new pastel paper stack & wanted to use it. I colored the stamps with markers before stamping, the one on the left was stamped on matt cardstock, the other was spritzed with water & stamped on watercolor paper. I was tempted to use a piece of velcro to hold the card closed but thought it may tear the paper when trying to open it. I'm stil trying to think of a way to hold it closed.

Hi Barb:
The card looks great. I've not done mine yet, but what about using a magnet for a closure
