Matchbook Valentine

This coming Saturday is my Stampin' Up club meeting, but once again I can't make it this month.  So sad!!!  But over the last several years I've made some sort of Valentine to share with the group, so even though I can't make it this week, I decided to make something anyways.  This is a matchbook candy card holder.  Super cute and pretty easy to make.  This was also the first time that I coloured a mini Magnolia image.  I thought it would be hard to colour it, but other than it being small, it was pretty easy.  

I made this card for the following challenge:
Outlawz Challenge - Monday Greeting Card - GCC0128

Supplies: Paper: SU (Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla) & Recollections (With Love); Ink: SU (Real Red, Pink Pirouette) & TH (Festive Berries, Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet); Punch: CM (Corner Rounder), SU (Modern Label & Word Window) & MS (Loops Heart & Sweet Hearts); Brads (SU); Stamps: SU (Teeny Tiny Wishes, Priceless) & Studio G & Magnolia: Tilda (Mini Secret Tilda); Misc: Scor-Pal, TH Distress Tool

Swing Fold Card - Purple

Today I have a Swing Fold card for you.  It's been a long while since I've made one of these.  These cards also go by Flip Flop card.  I think it's just a really cute way to make a card, and it's not all that hard.  For me the hardest part is figuring out the paper and the embellishments.

Here's the tutorial for this card.

I made this card for the following challenges:
Color Me Creative - Challenge #60
Outlaws Challenges - Twisted Thursday - TT012413
