Get Well Soon!

Time once again for the Stamp Simply Challenge--this week: create a matchbook fold. This is a very simple and quick fold. I made a card this time, but with one extra score at the top, you could create a covering packet for cocoa, tea, or even cough drops!

I'm a big House Mouse fan, and borrowed this stamp from our monthly stamp group leader: JoAnn (Thanks, Lady!). What a sweet scene of House Mouse care!

I was going to pull out my Prisma pencils to color this one, and even started to do so...I am a bit embarrassed to admit that I trashed that idea, and quickly nabbed up my Copics to do the job. I stamped this adorable image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto PaperTrey Ink white cardstock. Multiple Copics were used, as well as Spellbinder oval dies to make up the image panel and border.

Stampin' Up Wild Wasabi, along with Basic Grey's Two Scoops design paper, make up the base of this design. My design measures 4.5" X 10," scored at 4.5" and 1.25" with a Scor-It board.

A Michael's brad and narrow grosgrain ribbon tie this project up!
