Back to School Matchbook Card

This is a new kind of card for me. It's called a matchbook and I honestly winged it hehe. The little flap on the right side of the card (where the letters are) is only half adhered to the base...the left side of the card tucks under so it sort of closes. Nifty! It's always fun trying something new!
This little bear is in this week's new release at Meljen's Designs. I decided he'd make a cute little color book cover for a little one starting school soon!
