Romantic Anniversary Card...etc.

I'm sorry to say that I can not find the original cut file to offer thanks for this lovely silhouette. I cut it years ago and it took me until now to figure out how to use it. I used a fantastic navy blue suede paper and it cut beautifully.  Adding the punched flowers with pearls give it the dimension that was missing. 

If anyone recognizes this file and knows who offered it 
please let me know and I will edit this post.

I like having these little match book favors available to offer as a favor of thanks...just a little gift of kindness.  For the mail carrier, a favorite cashier or a waitress
Add a tea bag, or perhaps a chocolate or a mint.

You can decorate the front the back as well as the inside. 
Lots of possibilities for embellishments.
This pink and green striped matchbook has a little pocket covered with posies on the back with a little note card with a tiny clothespin clipped to it. Inside has some splenda sweetener to carry in your purse.

 This card sat on my work space for a couple of weeks until I was inspired to complete it. Just a plain white dresser until I pulled out some scraps of black and white.

 Do you leave incomplete cards within you view ...waiting for the right embellishments to show up?
If I put it away it will have to wait to be rediscovered, just like the silhouette card.

That's all for today...I have another meeting to attend this afternoon. 
Enjoy your day ... Be well~ Carole


  1. Hi Carole. Your silhouette card is gorgeous. What a lovely cut file ... and the flowers really give it dimension. A "wow" card!

    Love your little matchbook favors. Looks like they would be fun to make and you can personalize them so easily. Great idea.

    That white dresser with all the white and black accessories is fabulous!! Love it. Good for you to keep it in view so you will finish it. Loll xx

  2. This is truly gorgeous and stunning!!!! Just send the file my way...a must to use...haha. It happens to me not knowing sometimes where I get a file from if they don't add something to it. As far as leaving things around...I could write a short novel. I'm really trying to do better. You do so many amazing and different things in just one!
