Easel Card Calendar Card Tutorial

 If you weren't lucky enough to be included in my recent giveaway - don't worry- I have written a tutorial so you can create one of your very own.

Here's what you will need
4" x 8" piece of card stock
Bone folder
4" x 4" piece of coloured card stock (plus a few scraps for decoration)
3.75" x 3.75" piece of white/cream card stock (suitable for stamping on)
Stamps
Inks
Mini Calendar - download a pdf version - HERE (print the calendar and cut to size. Secure with staples)
Flat backed gems/pearls.

Here's how to make it



Take your 4" x 8" card stock, fold in the middle and then fold one of the sections in half again. Crease well with a bone folder.

Take your 3.75" x 3.75" card stock and stamp your design. Stick onto 4" x 4" coloured card stock.
Punch some flowers from scraps of coloured card stock.
Add the flowers to the stamped design and also add some flat backed gems or pearls.
To the un-creased section of your card stick down the calendar plus a few more flowers and gems.
Fold down the creased side of the card and add the stamped card stock as shown in the photograph. The calendar will prevent the front of the card falling flat.














This is how your easel card will now look - it also folds flat for easy postage.
