Stamp Ink Paper 66 Anything but a Card

Good Morning! Sorry I am a little late with my post! Had a little incident that included me slipping and possibly mildly spraining my ankle chasing a kid! Never a dull moment in this house! 
This week with Stamp Ink Paper we have fun challenge for you! We would like you to make ANYTHING but a card! You can see that our design team had all sorts of ideas but since I am getting ready for a craft fairs I figured I would master this great little Calendar/Post it note holder! Guess what it is even better?? I will give you quick instructions!!!

Get Details Here!



I have been eyeing these easel card type things for a few years and just never have bit the bullet to do one! I started with a sheet of 8.5 x 11 Mint Macaron card stock and trimmed to 4.25 x 11. You will want to the other piece shortly so don't set it put it away just yet. I used my Stampin' Trimmer to do all my cutting and scoring. I then scored on the long side at 2.75 and 5.5 inches. You will want to fold this into a mountain like the pic above. For your card or calendar front you will want to cut it at 4.25 x 5.5 inch. So easy right??? I used the Petals & Paisleys DSP from the Holiday catalog with a lovely Very Vanilla matte. The ribbon for my bow is 3/8" Ribbon Trio Pack that goes with the DSP. I finally had an opportunity to use my Gold Binder Clips to hold my little calendar on! The card front still needed something... so I used the Paisley Dies and cut out some quick Gold Foil pieces to finish the project off! You may recognize my gold pen... It was from a blog hop post the other day but it went so well with this!
