I happened to pick up the mini calendars at the Dollar store, and came across a picture of an Easel card that included a mini calendar, post it note and pen. It took me a while, but I figured out how to make this card. Now, if I could only find a source for these mini calendars in Canada!!
here gave me some ideas on how to made different Easel cards. However, I wanted to include a pen and a Post it note.
This is what I came up with.
The front of the card is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4", lined with Whisper White, and then striped Pacific Point DSP. In the middle is another piece of DSP, but the reverse side, and this is matted with Whisper White.
The calendar is mounted on a piece of Pacific Point card stock approximately the same size as the calendar, and then attached to the card front just above the half way point and over to the left side.
The card front is decorated with elements die cut using the Botanical Builder Framelits dies in the following colors: Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Basic Black. Rhinestones were placed in the centers of all the flowers.
The post it note mounted on a piece of Pacific Point card stock, was adhered near the bottom of the card, becoming the "door stop" for the card.
If you look carefully, you can see a small pen peeking out behind the Easel.
Decorating the box was the fun part.
A Pacific Point DSP layer was matted with Whisper White cardstock. Some Pacific Point ribbon (retired) was adhered near the bottom and a bow placed on top.
Above the ribbon, a Whisper White die cut was used as the base for the decorations. I received this particular die cut in a die cut swap with Canadian Die Cut Exchange group. Again, I used the floral elements die cuts made using the Botanical Builder framelits dies. I used the same colours as on the card.
