Vintage Calendar

Hi friends and followers,
I've just been over to the Kraftyhands blog and Linda (Simpson) has posted a calendar which I made a while ago using the vintage toppers from Kraftyhands. I'd forgotten about this and never posted it on my blog. So seeing as I didn't blog yesterday and I feel under the weather today, I thought I would show the calendar. It may be cheating but I blame it on the chinese meal I had last night!!

Here goes.

I printed a backing paper onto A4 card from the Vintage Treasures Cd - I think it is called billowing silk - I love this backing paper, especially in pale blue!! This time I did it in pale green to coordinate with the topper. I made it into a tent shape and punched the sides with a Fiskars punch.

I then matted the topper and the calendar tab onto  a green card that I had in my stash - centura pearl from Crafters Companion if I remember correctly. I added a bow underneath the calendar tab and fixed a gem to it.

I have a similar one on the windowsill in front of my desk which helps me when I am doing my Feline Playful posts!!

Thank you for stopping by and for all the lovely comments left on the Kraftyhands blog.

Have a good weekend.

Wendy, this is so gorgeous! How convenient not to have to store a bunch of stuff, but be able to print out exactly what appeals to you and create! The fancy edges finish your project to a very lacy, feminine, beautiful work of art. Absolutely - in every way - gorgeous! hugs, de
