a matchbook fold atc with Pink Persimmon surprise


At the Altered Pages blog, there is a little hop going on today, featuring
some sweet Pink Persimmon stamps.  Here is a matchbook fold
atc Valentine (Altered Pages collage image, of course):
And when you turn it over, you can see the Glitz paper background is
a basic matchbook fold:

And inside, a sweet surprise for any arty or sewing friend, the Sweetheart Mending image stamped on cardstock, wrapped with some lovely lace:
The stamp measures in at 2.4 by 3.4 inches, so it's perfect for the 2.5 by 3.5 atc
format.  Want to see more Pink Persimmon?  Check out the other creations,

Perfect little ATC Valentine. It would seem we were thinking along the same lines, but came up with different ideas. How fun! I love it.

How sweet is this lovely ATC! I love the image, and you have added so many beautiful accents- love that clip! Gotta love the ribbon included on the inside!

I like your idea of wrapping the inside card with lace, or yarn, or twine, as a cute little gift, or even a gift tag for a big gift.

SharonH said...

I love what you did in putting ribbon on the stamped card on the inside. It would be a great way to give someone some ribbon, or yarn, or twine, or floss, or something small. It would even make a nice card on a gift package.
