Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Matchbox Birthday Card

Hello there, friends! It’s Nina-Marie Trapani and I am back with a new Studio Monday project – this time featuring Mama Elephant!

In this birthday project, I am using the adorable Matchbox Builder die and Hooray Wishes set.

The Matchbox Builder makes the cutest little card that is super unique because of its matchbox shape. You could cut the box out of any paper or cardstock – I happen to be using Vicki Boutin Color Study pattern paper.

For a bit of sparkle, I did cut the “hooray” greeting from Simon Says Stamp Gold glitter cardstock. This little bit of shimmer adds that extra-special touch to the matchbox card front.

The Hooray Wishes stamp set also has these adorable kids in it. I stamped, colored, and adhered them to the inside of the matchbox with one of the pop-up tabs included in the Matchbox Builder die set.

Because this is a dimensional card, I used one of the decorative panel dies that is included in the Matchbox Builder set and wrote a message to the recipient. Then I adhered it to the back of my matchbox.

This super cute card is SO easy and fun to make! Be sure to watch the video below to see for yourself!
