Over the last few days I thought I'd make a start on my Christmas pressies for this year. I always give my work colleagues a christmas ornament (which I bought during the after Christmas sales last year). I'm not always this organised I can assure you! But I also wanted to make something unique and special. I'm really into easel cards at the moment so this calendar easel card developed. I'm trying to mix up the 'styles' to suit the personalities/style of my colleagues. Here are a few samples to give you some ideas.
We will also be making a similar version of the red easel card at the next ladies card making day.
1st blue easel - Kaisercraft paper, Stampin Up Baja Breeze card stock and ink, Stampin up Vintage Vogue stamp set & Sea Worthy stamp set (wording), corrugated card.

I made these cards as examples for a card class I'm running this weekend. The idea came from an old Stampin & Papercraft magazine. I used the Stampin Up Grey ink pad on cream card (which sounds an odd combination but turned out surprisingly okay.
Products used: cream cardstock, PSX shell stamp, Stamp It shell stamp, pearl strand, white ribbon.
