Citrus Kit cards with a clutch handbag card folder

I'm back after 10 days of fun (4th of July, Charlie's birthday, vacation days and a big event on Friday!)  Lots of posts coming your way with Whale projects, Hand Drawn Blooms and today the Citrus Kit.

Our kits make fun summer projects, and this one is perfect for easy, pretty crafting. The Citrus Kit makes 15 cards in bright colors - Mango Melody, Just Jade, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and the navy ink makes the fruit pop!

I made a clutch to hold a few cards.  I've made these in different sizes either a clutch to hold just 2 cards (or money or a gift card) 8 1/2 x 11, score at 1 3/4, 2 1/4, 7 and 7 1/2. Cut 1" off the paper so it's 7 1/2 x 11 and fold into a clutch. The 1" strip becomes the gussets. Each gusset is 2" long and the score lines are already there as you did them before you cut off this strip.

Here's a few photos so you can see how it goes together.

You'll see I added a 1/2 x 7 1/2" strip of silver foil along with the Label me Lovely punch for a closure. You can add a velcro dot or a magnet but I didn't as I found that by adding 3 dimensions at the bottom of the punched shape, the clutch front flap tucked into the shape and it stayed shut!

Happy summer, happy stamping! Don't forget Bonus Days in July, for every $50 you spend you get $5 to spend in August!!  My online shop has this Citrus Kit and all the supplies, happy shopping, MaryKate
