Make A Wish Matchbook Card

 Make A Wish, again and again until you get what you want!. If it only worked that way!. This weeks card is made like a giant matchbook. I used two of the Cottage Cutz Party collection dies. The Cottage Cutz Candle and Celebration die. The candles were cut in light pink card stock and highlighted in bright pink ink, in the embossed stripes on the candles I filled in with a white gel pen. The stars and confetti are from the celebrate die.
 The inside of the card looks like a matchbook that all the matches have been used.  (my guess is it took all the matches and candles to get that wish). In lower fold of the card I cut two strips of brown card stock and cut slits about half way down, the torn edge looks like torn matches (torn at different levels). I added another candle and more confetti on the inside of the matchbook along with the finished verse.
 Bad photo. . sorry, but was trying to show you a side view of the folds in the matchbook.
The size card stock on the matchbook card is 4" x 9 1/4" base with score lines on 4", 4 1/4", 8 5/8" and 8 3/4". Just remember when you glue the lip over the matches, to leave enough room for the matchbox to catch under the lip when closed. 

Thanks Barry
