First, I blended water reactive pink inks on a piece of white cardstock. I splattered some inks and water on it. Once it was dry I stamped one of the sentiments from the kit with a brown inkpad.
Then, I used the die to make the front part of the flat matchbox on my inked panel.
To make the matches I used the two dies from the kit. I cut them from kraft cardstock and some leftovers of my pink inked panel. To give them dimension and a glossy look I used a clear glaze on the top of the matches. I let them dry overnight. The next day, I fussy cut the top of the glazed matches and mixed and matched them with other pink and brown matches. I also fussy cut two brown hearts to use them as embellishments.
Finally, for the base of my card I cut two rectangles, a 3″ x 5.5″ onto brown cardstock and a 2 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ onto the Azaela cardstock from the kit. I used the Stripe Stencil add-on with brown ink on my pink panel. I matted and layered them and glued my matchbox, matches and hearts on it.
Et voilà !
