365 cards challenge Day 46 Matchbook cards

The challenge over at 365 cards today is Matchbook cards - mmmm, wasn't to sure about this one but thought I should give it a go anyway. I am glad I did, as I enjoyed making it and I can see me using this style card again.

I cut an A4 piece of Really Red cardstock in half lengthways, then scored at 5" & 10.75". I background stamped the cardstock with a versamark ink pad using flower stamps from the Simply Said kit. I stamped a white piece of paper with more flower images in Really Red for the insert and attached this to the inside of the card as shown.

The image on the front of the card was stamped in Black onto Whisper White card and watercoloured with Really Red ink from an inkpad, then mounted onto black card. The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in black onto WW card, then mounted onto a scalloped oval punched from Really Red card and pierced on the scallops, you may have noticed I like doing this!!
Card finished off with some black grosgrain ribbon tied around the bottom of the front flap.

Thanks for looking.
