I made it myself!

I had this bright idea today.
Ok not brilliant but it executed well.

And I think I'll be making this style again!

Actually, I have, in multiple sizes...

If you look closely, I made a matchbook! The closure are made using 2 circle punches.

The stamp is vintage Tim! Lol!!! One of the first stamps I have by him! I colored it with markers before stamping. 2 sets of Wings & the hat are cut, and layered with black foam squres.
The background paper is from one of the Paper Stashes, inked on the edges with Weathered wood Distress Ink & stamped with a solid butterfly in pumice stone. The tag is a TIM a long with the verse stamped in archival.

This is the first run through below. Inspiration for the final design above. I decided it needed 2 scores at the top to give it more dimension, and 'fold' into the small fold up at the bottom.

The card is made from Tim's Paper Stash. It's inked on the edges with weathered wood distress ink.
The stamped coffee ring & splatters are inked with vintage photo and are part of an older stamp set.

The image is from Altered Pages and is done as an image transfer into PPA. Since I printed from my laser printer the image turned out nice & crisp.

The phrase is cut from the sentiment stamp set called Quotes & Quotables by Artistic Outpost. The stamp is great because while it's designed to be used as 1, it has lines that can be used individually! LOVE that!

I love the matchbook - it would be really interesting to make some small enough to use on ATC's.
