Lemon zest card using Stampin' Up! products

The weather here in Sacramento has been SO crazy!  For the third time in my life, I saw it snow in Sacramento and this time I got STUCK in it.  We got 4 INCHES near my house and I was on my way to the grocery store when it started and had to sit in the parking lot until it stopped snowing and the roads were cleared.  Needless to say, I wanted to showcase a project that reminds us that warm and sunny weather is near!

  • Vellum: 3" x 3 ½ “

1. Create card front from Lemon Lime Twist CS by scoring at 4 ¼”.

2. Stamp “Happy Birthday” in memento black ink on the bottom of the Whisper White piece. Stamp lemon slice 3 times in Lemon Lime Twist on the left side (make sure you only do halves, otherwise it will be visible through the glass). Adhere White piece to Basic Black CS and then to card base. Set aside.

3. To create a glass: Lightly mark vellum at ¾ from both sides of 3” side (red marks on diagram below). Using Stampin' Trimmer – cut from one corner to a marked point on one side, repeat on other side. Use scoring blade, create a score line ¼” from side of the ‘glass’ by aligning a side with ¼ mark on the Stampin' Trimmer. You should get following shape:
Green indicates score lines. Apply Tear & Tape between the scored line and edge. Fold on a scored line. Sponge the ‘glass’ with sponge dauber and Lemon Lime Twist ink on inside, leave some white space on top.

4. Remove Tear & Tape and adhere glass to the card front from step 2. Try to make the shape a little rounded.

5. Stamp 2 more slices on scrap piece of Whisper White in Lemon Lime Twist ink. Punch them with 1 ¾” punch. Cut a slit from a side to the center on first piece of lime. Add Dimensionals to the back and decorate the glass with it. Cut 3 pieces from second lime. Add Dimensionals and add to the bottom of the glass on the right side.

6. Adhere ‘straw’ inside the glass.

Remember, you do not have to invent the wheel to be creative, just copy this project! Did you make it with your own hands? Then you have created!
