SHOPPING OUR STASH #261 - You Are Matchless


Hello and good morning! I'm late with getting my card made and uploaded to the challenge blog, but it's there now. Hubby and I just came back from our vacation late Sunday night. I knew I'd be making a card yesterday, but I only sat down to make it last night. Had to wait for daylight to take a decent picture.

So what is this new challenge about at SHOPPING OUR STASH? Well, we want you to create your own matchbox/matchbook! I was a little leery of this one, but once I got started, my card came together pretty quickly. (It also helped that I used an image that I colored when I was on vacation. ☺)


 Here's the inside:

I was stumped as to what to use for the triangle elements, but then hubby suggested gold or silver - brilliant! (of course, gold foil cardstock is incredibly hard to photograph. sigh) Anyhooo, once I had the card made, I used a bit of twine to keep the matchbook flap closed. 

So, now it's your turn. Ready to try your hand at a matchbook or matchbox project? Of course you are! Just be sure to link up at Shopping Our Stash so we can admire it! Need more inspiration? Just visit my teammates blogs and leave them some bloggy lovin' while there. Thanks for visiting!



I'd like to enter this at Mojo Monday #457

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
