Shades of Green


Hello and Welcome!

Regina, owner/designer of The Cutting Cafe, gave the design team the freedom to create anything we wanted but it had to be green. I knew what I wanted to create-a St. Patrick's Day themed matchbook. There are several matchbook files, which you can print and cut, that are available here in the online store. 

I inked all of my surfaces with peeled paint distress ink and used gathered twigs distress ink on the edges. Two Graphic 45 paper collections-Time to Flourish and Place in Time-decorate my matchbook along with flowers, stickers, and pearls.

I added paper to the inside as well. A nest of green moss will provide a soft landing for the four leaf clover locket which I'll place in my matchbook as a St. Patrick's Day gift for my daughter.

Hope you like my little matchbook. To see more "green" inspiration featuring cutting files/templates/printable stamps by The Cutting Cafe be sure to visit TCC blog on the 7th. If you leave a comment you'll be in the running to win 3 FREE sets from TCC. Good luck!

Have a wonderful weekend, wherever you are!!!
