I have a little different Fun Fold to share with you today. It isn’t new by any means, it is an old one that I found when cleaning out. I love when I find older styles and folds that I have not seen in quite a while. Today’s find is a Matchbook fold. The most recent Matchbook fold I have used was with a little Life Saver Candy that I made in a Matchbook last year. I handed them out during the Holidays.
I think this stamp set, Senior Years, is a hoot!! But then I qualify as a Senior, so best to just laugh about it, Right???
The man and the sentiment are both from the Senior Years set. I colored the man thinking of Sheldon on Big Bang Theory and his plaid pants. I added the background colors based off of the pants.
The card is a pretty quick one in terms of the fold. It is a 4 1/4 X 11, scored at 1″ and 6 1/4″. The 1″ is the matchbook part. I still have the old Stampin’ Up! stapler. But any little stapler will do the trick. Just fold the 1″ section up and staple it equal distance apart, like 1/3 in from each end. But staple it a bit below 1/2″. That way your card has room to get behind the fold and not hit the staples.
To Dress Up the card, I added four of the Antique Corners from the Antique Corners and Slides accessories from the World Of Good Suite in the Annual Catalog. They seem very “manly” when placed with these colors and the “senior” man.
Thank you for stopping in today. I greatly appreciate it. If you have any questions regarding the card, do not hesitate to reach out. I will gladly explain more or answer a question.
