Calendar Card

Instructions for Calendar Card

Supplies

Cutting/Scoring tool

Basic Black & Whisper White cardstock
4 Colors of card stock with coordinating Designer Paper

Tree for all Seasons Stamp set
Black Ink
SU Markers, Watercolor Crayons, or Pencils

1 3/8" Circle Punch & Scallop Circle Punch
Crop-a-dile
Ribbon
adhesives

Step 1:
Print a Yearly Calendar...go to:hhttp://www.printfree.com/Calendar_files/Yearly/2011printable.htm  Right Click on the calendar ; select Print Preview Go to the “Shrink Down” drop down menu, select 80% Print onto Whisper White Cardstock.

Step 2: Score the following pieces:
Cut Black Cardstock 5 ½ x 8 ½” and Score at 4 ¼ “ ( just like you would for a cardbase)
Cut Black Cardstock (4) 5 x 1 5/8”
Punch (4) Black Scallops
Cut 4 pieces of Cardstock ; coordinating Designer Paper:
Cardstock: 5 ¼ x 4”
Designer Paper: 5 x 2
Cut Calendar strips (finished size should be 4 7/8 x 1 ½” each)

For each “season” complete the following steps:
Adhere DP onto the coordinating colored cardstock.Adhere the black matting to the white calendar strip. Adhere the matted calendar strip to the colored cardstock (the bottom edge of the black mat should be approx 3/8” from the bottom of the colored cardstock..to allow room for holes that will be punched).

Adhere Black Scallop above calendar strip.
Stamp & color image.
Punch out with 1 3/8” circle punch.
Place (2) dimensionals (pop dots)behind the image circle & adhere to the black scallop.
Next, you'll want to think about which 2 seasons you want on the outside and on the inside of your calendar then adhere each onto the black calendar base.

For instance, you could put Spring & Summer on the outside, Fall & Winter on the inside. Just make sure your seasons go in sequence.
Use your Cropadile to punch two 1/8” holes (for the ribbon) on the bottom edge of both sides of the calendar (approx 3/8” up from the bottom edge).
Thread gingham ribbon through and tie in a loose knot or bow.

Your done!

The SU color combo tool is simple and fun to use. I'm glad you chose to put this on because it's not always easy to find matching colors! To everyone else, check it out in the bottom of the right column.
