Stamps:

Ink:
Black, Lemon/Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry
Markers: Crushed Curry, Wink of Stella
Card/Paper:
Basic Black, Whisper White, Lemon/Lime Twist, Fresh Florals DSP
Punches:
Scalloped Tag Topper, Pretty Label, Lemon Builder
Accessories: Metallic Enamel Shapes, Gold Ribbon, Magnets

1. Cut Basic Black to 29.5cm x 10cm. In landscape position score at 10.5cm and 21cm. Burnish fold lines.
2. At the short end punch with the scallop tag topper punch. You will have to wriggle the card a bit to fit it in the punch. Cut of black “squares” on either side of punched tag.
3. Open card flat and stamp on the two white inserts (10cm x 9.5cm) to go inside the tri fold card.(When stamping the lemon slice, add a darker colour to the lemon rind by using a crushed curry marker after inking in daffodil ink).
4. Fold card up and add a 9.4cm x 5.7cm white mat to front section with the tag. Stamp lemon using the rock and roll technique on a scrap piece of white. Punch out. Stamp and punch leaves also and glue all pieces to this front panel. Add some enamel dots.
5.
Open up front panel with the tag, then add another 10cm x 9.5cm white mat to the folded over black card. This will also be matted with DSP but first we have to add magnets...
6. Join two magnet strips together. (I cut mine from an unwanted advertisier on my fridge). Put tape on one side and adhere magnets to the back side of tag (just below punched hole). Put tape on remaining magnet (they should still be attached together) and simply close front panel and press down so that magnet is adhered to white card. Now pull the magnets apart, and when you close the front panel again, you will see that the magnets line up to create a prefect closure.
7.
Cover over magnet with 9cm x 9.5cm piece of DSP.
8. Stamp “If life gives lemons...” sentiment and punch out with pretty label punch. Adhere this to DSP on far left so that when card is closed, it can’t be seen.
9. Thread a ribbon through the hole on tag front.
10.
Make your custom envelope with the envelope marker and a piece of copy paper. Use the instructions for making an envelope to fit 4” x 4” card.
11. Add Wink of Stella to all lemons and lemon slices.
