Calendar Easel Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome! Our theme this month is Celebrate, which gives us all a lot of wiggle room.  I created a Calendar Easel Card because in just a few short days we will celebrate a new year!

Kelly Acheson has created a great tutorial on Splitcoaststampers for a Calendar Easel Card and it includes a link for the calendar pages, too!  For this Calendar Easel Card, I used the Petal Palette Bundle from the upcoming 2018 Occasions Catalog.  My card base is Basic Black with layers of Pool Party and Petal Passion DSP(available January 3rd)

I stamped the floral and bird images from the Petal Palette stamp set in Memento Black ink and colored them in with my Pool Party, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.  They were die cut with the Petals & More Thinlets Dies.  The sentiment was stamped in Memento Black onto Vellum card stock  and also die cut with one of the dies from the set.  

Here is a side shot, and you see that it will fold flat to be mailed in a regular A2 envelope.  Isn’t that cool?

The back was decorated also with another little bird and a branch from the Petals & More Thinlets Dies.  The sentiment was also stamped in Memento Black ink.

I added extra layers than in the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers, so you will find the card stock cuts near the end of my post.  We hope you enjoy your time hopping around to see what everyone has created.  Just click one of the icons below to advance forward or backward.  Enjoy!
