I have made a card that folds like a matchbook for something different today.  It was inspired by the treat holder Julie DiMatteo did a video on last week.  You can see her video here.  We saw the treat holder at World Card Making Day here in Atlanta.  Julie is the Queen of 3-D, so she went with figuring out that project.  I immediately thought that a card that closes like a matchbook would be cute.  So here is my version.


Stampin' Up! Eastern Beauty, Jackie Beers, Bluelinestamping

Eastern Beauty, 143675



Can you see where the top flap tucks behind the bottom piece?  The small section is stapled low on that fold and then the layers cover the staples.

My color combination came directly from this beautiful Designer Series Paper.  I had not purchased this paper until I took advantage of the October special of buy 3 get 1 Free!  This is such an awesome deal.  (The details are at the bottom of the page.)



I could have used a variety of other color combinations as well.  And I fudged a little bit. The package says the peach is actually Tangerine Tango, but I wanted the softer color.  I believe it works just as well.



  • The base card is Pear Pizzaz cut to 4 1/2 X 11.  It is scored at 1 and 6 3/8.  The 1″ is folded up and stapled.  The second fold is long enough to tuck under the fold at a the bottom of the card.
  • The Peekaboo Peach layers are 3 7/8 X 4, and 3 7/8 X 3/4
  • The DSP layers are 3 3/4 X 3 7/8 and 3 3/4 X 5/8
