Hi friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I know the weather has been crazy in some areas of the country. We've had a chilly week; however, tomorrow's temperature is expected to soar to near 75 but, by Wednesday, there is a chance for a snow/rain event just in time for Thanksgiving!
A dear friend recently celebrated her birthday so I made a card and matchbox set for her. The matchbox is a first for me and was so easy to make.
The card base was made with kraft cardstock and a sheet of K&Co paper. The doily is Wilton. The diecuts are all from Kaisercraft, and the green flower is Petaloo. I added a few rhinestones and a pebble from Recollections. Foam dots were added here and there for dimension.
The matchbox was made using a Tim Holtz die and made to match the card using the same products.
The stamped sentiment on the tag is from Paper Salon. Below is an image of the box opened.
I decorated the inside of the box with more diecuts from Kaisercraft. It can be filled with tiny goodies or even a small dimensional decoration. I have a lot of plans using this die for Christmas gifts.
Have you started making Christmas gifts yet? I just finished five tags for a Christmas swap, so now I can devote the next few weeks to making some cards and a few of these matchboxes. It's hard to believe there is only about one month to go!
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit here and the sweet comments you leave. Have a wonderful week and, for those celebrating, Happy Thanksgiving!
