Matchbook card

Thursday night on
Live with Prima, Cari Fennell created three cards using some of the new Prima collections. What I've ordered hasn't arrived yet, so I tried her matchbook card using Graphic 45's A Ladies' Diary instead. Here is how mine turned out...

This shot is with
the cover closed. I added more layers of paper for stability on the inside than Cari did, so mine doesn't close quite as easily as hers. My sentiment will go along that bottom section just above the staple. (I like to add the sentiment when I know what type of occasion the card will be used for).

Here the cover is
pulled out. I kept my design pretty simple.

This is the tag
that's stapled to the inside. I just used a standard #8 manila tag. If you check Cari's out here, you'll get an idea of how easy this style is to embellish. It's fun to make and quick... just what we busy crafters need, right?
