Sweet Lemons Card Case

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a cheery project I created using the Card Case Diecut by Eileen Hull. There’s an endless sort of creative possibilities with this diecut…which I love. But I just stuck to the basic design (nothing elaborate unlike some projects…wink wink) and created a case to hold tags so let’s get started!

First, I applied Adhesive Sheets to both sides of the Mat Board, cut to fit patterned cardstock and placed onto both sides of the mat board. Placed the mat board onto the Card Case Diecut and sandwiched in-between cutting plates before running through the Diecut Machine.

Here’s a little tip when using mat board or even chip board incase you need to glue pockets or the spine together using Eileen’s dies. You can “peel” the mat board/chip board to get a thinner flap or spine which in turn will lay flush when all is put together.

I adhered the pockets to either side of the case before gluing the spine together.

I had a sheet of cut a parts that I punched a hole in the top of each tag, lightly decorated with embellishments and tying together with cording.

I decorated each pocket with a bit of lace and an embellishment and placed the tags in each pocket.

I embossed a piece of black mat board with the Crochet Mandala Embossing Folder. I double a piece of cording and glued the embossed mat board over the piece of cording. I cut a couple of the perforated tickets with the Mini Slimline Tickets Thinlits, embossed with Crochet Mandala Embossing Folder and lightly inked with chalk ink before adhering to the cover along with lace and a scrap piece of patterned cardstock. I finished the cover off by adding a few sequins and chipboard pieces from the Lemon Twist Chipboard Stickers. I also added mini gems to the center of each flower of one of the chipboard pieces.

The cording I measured about three inches from the end of the cording and strung three beads. I tied a knot in the end to keep them in place. I wrapped the cording around the case and looped the end with the beads under the cording to keep it closed.
