New Year Calendar

I made small easels to display these little tear off calendars from Taylored Expressions for friends. After preparing the easel I used patterned paper from Gina K Designs to create a mat for the calendar. I planned to make New Year’s cards to mail with the calendars. I used the Happy New Year sentiment from the Season’s Greetings set by Sunny Studios embossed in gold on black, cut with the matching die. I discovered that the scraps that were left from the mats behind the calendar were just the perfect size for the sentiment. I matted the patterned paper with black. I used the fireworks stamps from Let’s Party, an incentive from Gina K designs stamped tone on tone on the card base. The calendars tucked nicely into the card and went through the mail without additional postage. This is just one of several colors of cards and patterned paper. I’m hoping this project is CAS enough for the Cardz 4 Gals Challenge #190 CAS

    1. Thanks Bonnie. It was a happy accident. I wasn’t sure what Io was going to do with those little scraps but I couldn’t toss them.

  1. This is great and I love the colour combo you’ve chosen. It’s a good gift idea and probably very welcome to those who receive it. Doing tone on tone for the card base was a wonderful idea.
