Birthday, Calendar Card, Stampin' Up!

Easel Calendar Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using the Sweet Cupcake Bundle but it has been created as more of a gift that the recipient can keep all year long!

I’ve made this card for my husband’s aunt who loves my calendar cards and seeing as her birthday is on 1 December, it is perfect timing to send it to her with the 2017 calendar!

So today I have used the same colour scheme as Monday’s card; Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White. She wears a lot of orange so I thought this was perfect for her!


The ‘sweet’ is die cut using the Cupcake Cutout Framelits in the Gold Glimmer paper.


The card front is embossed using the Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The Peekaboo Peach & white ovals are die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits.


The icing is a 3-step stamping process using photopolymer stamps, so you can easily line them up. The first layer is So Saffron then Peekaboo Peach before the final layer of Watermelon Wonder. I also used the Clear Wink of Stella over the top for a shiny glazed effect! I stamped a die cut two of these cupcakes, one for the front and one for inside the card!


The mini calendar is placed at the bottom of the inside of the card, as this creates the easel.

Don’t forget to decorate inside your card and stamp on the envelope!

What do you think of this card?

Calendar Card, Owl Punch

Easel Calendar & Post-it Card

Hello Stampers,

This is a project I have made for some upcoming craft markets and Christmas gifts. It is easy but also very useful! It is perfect as a gift for someone’s office or desktop. It has a pad of post-it notes on the bottom and the top part of the card sits behind the post-it notes and has a calendar which can be displayed all year round.

Mini Calendar Card

To create this you start with one piece of card stock measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″; score it at 5½” and 2¾”.

Mini Calendar Card

Fold as shown above and add adhesive to the easel section.  Cut one more layer at 4¼” x 5½”.  Adhere the bottom of this piece to the area with glue on it so that it folds flat. This will make them easier to put in the post!

I hope you like this cute but simple project.
