Angel’s Landing ~ Match-Box Card

Angela's Landing - Page 011

Happy Monday Everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend!

My project today is actually a gift that I made for my mother-in-law. She loves birds and her garden is always filled with them. When I saw this new image from Angel’s Landing I knew that it would be perfect for her!

I created a match-box card. The card is adhered onto the 4 match-boxes and it ties shut with a ribbon. The image was colored with Copic markers and then I added a layer of UTEE (ultra thick embossing powder) to it so it will be more durable.

I actually "googled" cardinals and found color photos and when I saw that there are some that are not the traditional all red that I was used to seeing, I thought I would use this other color palette. I was talking to Judi and she was telling me that the males are the reds ones and the females are the ones with the more muted coloring! I didn’t know that!

  • Image: Angel’s Landing: Seasons Tweetings
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Basic Black, Sahara Sand Cardstock, Parisien Breeze DP
  • Coloring: Copic Markers, UTEE
  • Embellies: SU! Chocolate Chip Silk Ribbon, Gemstone brads(handles), Hero Arts gems

I made the match boxes with a Stampin’ Up die. It was so much easier that measuring and cutting by hand!

I want to thank Judi for asking me to be her October Guest for Angel’s Landing. She was such an absolute pleasure to work with and she is as lovely as her images! MWAH!
