‘A hug in a mug’ Matchbook

5/27/23 Top Pick at Inkspirational Challenges!

Hi friends! Happy Friday to everyone – I hope you’re having a great week! I received an email a while back from the lovely Debbie, owner of the Creative Creases blog, asking if I’d like to guest design in 2023. Of course I couldn’t say no, so here I am with a fun GD inspiration project for Creative Creases Challenge #57! You know how much I love the Art Impressions Matchbooks, so I have the Coffee Shop to share with you today! I used the Coffee Shop stamps and dies along with the Matchbook Template Die and Matchbook Envelope Dies, and it turned out so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it!

I cut the base from Polly’s Paper Studio patterned paper using the Matchbook Template Die. I stamped all the elements from the Coffee Stop stamps in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers, and cut them with the coordinating Coffee Shop dies.

I always enjoy the assembly the most. Here’s a shot of the Matchbook with the tiny envelope. I used the Matchbook Envelope Dies and the back side of the striped paper for the envelope.

And here are some angled shots. Love, love, love!
