These enticed me to take a little break from fall and Christmas and explore this fabulous garden shed. It's a darling little world of flowers and pots you are likely to find in every little flower and plant shed throughout the world. The details of blossoms, herbs, garden gloves and even the peek of a watering can make this scene so much fun to create, give and receive!
To make this card, I stamped the images on marker friendly card stock. I chose many bright Copic Marker colors and a few pastels. I really didn't think about what colors to use but just colored one stamp at a time working in sections. I chose hues as my mood directed. I find coloring this way is the most relaxing. I just let go of the thinking part of my brain and allow my creative side to pick colors. Before I knew it, the images were all done and ready to cut out and put in the matchbook template (sold separately #5317). The template is the card base that the individual stamped images fit into.
All the matchbook sets come with dies to match the stamps. I cut them the Flower Shop images, folded the tabs on each stamp and used the tabs to glue them into place in the matchbook base. When done, the stamps fold in so that you can close it up and give it to someone. For your convenience, there is an optional die for a matchbook envelope (#5318). Both the matchbook template and the envelope will work for all the matchbook scenes so you only need to buy them once.
I hope you enjoyed this fresh little matchbook card and will go check out the entire matchbook line. There are a lot of them now and there's definitely something for everyone. Have a wonderful creative weekend everyone!
