Today’s project is a partner to yesterday’s Thank You cards.  I love the different 3D projects my friend, and fellow demonstrator, Julie DiMatteo makes.  She had made a little clutch that held a variety of things.  I decided to use that to hold my cards.  And it is large enough to add some extra items as well.  The clutch stars the Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper.  It also emphasizes the beautiful Wanted To Say Dies.

The Clutch

This is a really simple and quick project with some simple score lines.  Julie is a master at these type projects.  So instead of me trying to explain the procedure to you.  Here is a link to her tutorial.  Click Here


To decorate the clutch, I used the Lasting Label Punch for the clasp.  It is folded over the top and adhered to the front with a velcro dot.  The little wooden heart button is from my Stampin’ Up! stash.  I had actually written on the top of the little round container the date.  It is from a 2017 Mini Catalog!  I really do need to clean out my stash!!!


There are two different Die sets used for this pretty sentiment on the clutch.  The background is one of the Nested Essentials Dies.  I love these shapes and the various sizes.  And that they work wonderfully wether placed vertical or horizontally.

The second Die set is the Wanted To Say.  This set is amazing!  It has the double layers for a 3D look to the words.  One of the most important things to remember on these dies is to add the Adhesive Sheet to the back of the card stock before cutting the thinner words.  It makes life so much easier!  For this one, I used Crushed Curry for the shadow cut and then  Basic White for the lettering.  Once they were adhered together they are added to the Nested Essential die with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And of course a few pearls were necessary to complete the project.

Open View

This is a view of how large the inside of the clutch is.  I have 10 notecards with envelopes as well as an added gift.  As I said, it is surprisingly large on the inside.    (When closed, the extra gift is laying on it’s side not flat in the bottom.)   Hopefully my friend will love this as much as I do!
