I made this calendar for a challenge swap on one of the Yahoo swap groups I belong to. The swap hostess sent us two brown paper envelopes and also a piece of leather and we had to come up with something from those items which had to include some stamping!
I had just bought a packet of these little calendar pads from Anita's so I decided to make use of them! I put a piece of card into each brown envelope and then sealed them and inked around the edges with a brown ink pad. I folder the top envelope in half and then scored it before folding it backwards to make the top part of the calendar - the other section was stuck to the base envelope.
The stamped panel was made using white card - I used some brown ink on it and then stamped with one of my oldest stamps - Old French Writing from Hero Arts. The butterflies were die cut from a Tim Holtz die (with thanks to my good friend Sylvia!) and then overstamped with the Hero Arts stamp - the 'bodies' were drawn in with a black permanent pen. Finally, I added some small black peel off dots to finish it.
I'd like to enter this project in the following challenges:
Stampalot Challenge - 'whatever you fancy'
Allsorts Challenge Blog - 'anything but a card'
