Tutorial Tuesday - Matchbook Card

Supplies:

4 5/8” x 9 ½” base card
4 4/8” x 3 7/8” patterned paper
1 ½” x 4 4/8” patterned paper

Sewing machine
Stamps
Ink

Using your base card, score at 4 1/4", 4 5/8" and 8 7/8"

Fold 1 ½” x 4 4/8” paper in half

Bend the bottom score line upwards and adhere paper with a little glue and then sew down the centre.

Place card front behind sewed flap and trim as necessary.

For lots of colour on one stamp, colour the back of the image with a Tombow marker and huff on it before you stamp.

Mixing up the colours up each time you stamp, makes it look like you used more than one stamp.

Adhere patterned paper to the card front. Matt your image and adhere. Embellish as desired.
