Calendar Easel Card

Today I wanted to post this cute little calendar easel card, which makes a great gift right here as the new year approaches! The little calendar is from For my calendar I decorated it with the Gently Falling Stamp set and the fun greetings set Friendly Phrases. The designer paper is from my scraps, so I don't remember what the name of it is, sorry.

                            Stamps: Gently Falling, Friendly Phrases 
                            Paper: Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, unknown DSP 
                            Ink: Cajun Craze, Chocolate Chip, Early Espresso 
                            Accessories: Calendar from Vippies, Dimensionals, Glue dots, paper snips
                            Techniques: Rock & Roll, 2-step stamping, hand cutting 

Here’s how to make the calendar:

1. Start with a 3½” x 8½” piece of cardstock. Insert it in your Simply Scored board so that its 8 ½” side is along the top of the board, and score it at 2-1/8” and 4-1/4”.

2. Fold both score lines the same direction. Decorate the 2-1/8” panel at the end, and attach the calendar so that it is across the first fold.

3. Make a panel or punch to use for the inside of the card, and attach it to the lower half of the inside of the card using Dimensionals. This will work as a place for the top half of the card to catch, creating your easel.

All items that I used to make this card (except the calendars) are available from Stampin’ Up! The Gently Falling stamp set is only available in the Holiday Mini Catalog which lasts through January 3rd, so don’t miss out!
