Lilac House Card and Case by OMC designer Whitney!


Supplies Used:

Fancy Pants : Lilac House
Martha Stewart : Deep Edge Punch: Footlights
Lifestyle Crafts : Fresh Start Cutting Dies- Bloom
Clearsnap : Colorbox Classic Pigment Ink-Boysenberry
Tulle - Brown
Bazzill Basics : Jewels - Clear


1. Cut Lilac House patterned paper 9 ¾”x 5 ¾”. 
2. With Footlights Punch, punch lilac patterned paper 5 ¾”x2”. Adhere ½” from the bottom. 
3. With Footlights Punch, punch white paper 5 ¾”x 5”. Adhere just above the lilac paper, leaving a thin strip of patterned paper showing at the top.  
4. Ink the edges with Boysenberry ink pad. 
5. Die cut 8 white small flowers, but layer one on top of the other to create four flowers. Apply a small jewel in the center of each flower and adhere to the bottom of the scalloped white paper.

Tip: With thin paper, the die cut can cut through 3 sheets at a time.

6. Cut out “Wish” from paper pack and ink the edges with Boysenberry ink pad. Apply the purple border rub on to the bottom of the sentiment. Adhere to left side of page.


7. On right side of card, apply the blue border rub on.  
8. Adhere a line of jewels to the left of the sentiment and on both sides of the blue rub on.  
9. Finish with brown tulle tied in a bow at the top of the card.


Supplies Used:

Fancy Pants: Lilac House
Bazzill Basics : 12”x24” Cardstock
Spellbinders : Nestabilities - Wonky Rectangle
Imaginisce : I-top brad
Tattered Angels : Glimmer Mist - Pearl
Lifestyle Crafts : Fresh Start Cutting Dies- Bloom
Bazzill Basics : Jewels - Clear
Box to trace (Letterpress Printing Plates)


1. Trace a box onto white cardstock and make folds, but do not assemble yet. This box was traced from the Letterpress Printing Plate packaging.  
2. Die cut 2 small and 1 medium sized Spellbinders Nestabilities: Wonky Rectangles with Lilac House patterned papers. Layer and adhere to front of box.  
3. Die cut several layers of the Lifestyle Crafts flower cutting die with white paper. This flower has 6 layers of petals.

Tip: The petals curl upward because I sprayed them on both sides with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist color Pearl. This gave them the flexibility to curl on their own. You can also shape them how you want with a pencil or your fingers.  

4. With I-top, create a 16mm brad using coordinating lilac paper. Punch a hole with Tim Holtz Retractable Craft Pick through the center of each flower and stick the brad through the center.  
5. Adhere the flower to the center of the box, slightly over the rectangles.


6. Cut “Do you remember?” out of Lilac House kit and layer with acetate purple dot paper also from the Lilac House kit. Adhere to the bottom right of the box.  
7. Apply 3 jewels to the bottom left and top right of the box.  
8. On the top fold of the box, apply a brown vine rub on from Lilac House kit.


9. Assemble box and put a CD, card, gift card, or other small item inside.

Happy crafting!
