Dani Easter Calendar

First, I cut the ears from 'Nude Sirio 290gsm' using oval nesting dies. I cut the inner of the ears from 'Woodstock Cipria 285gsm' in the same way.

I wasn't happy with the shape, however. The ears were too bulbous for the look I was going for. So, I went in with some scissors and narrowed them down. I wasn't entirely satisfied with their outcome. The cut lines weren't smooth and they weren't of equal size but sometimes, that's what crafting is about, right?!

Once I was (fairly) happy, I stuck the inner of the ears down using wet adhesive.

I then started cutting all the floral components using a mix of 'Baby Pink 240gsm' and 'Raspberry Pink 240gsm'. I threw a scrap of pink glitter card in there too! The Foliage was simply some 'White Super Smooth 250gsm' card.

TOP TIP: This style of design is great for using up all your scraps!

Before sticking everything down, I applied some ink in the background using some Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide.

Finally, I went ahead and adhered everything to the calender page using wet adhesive.

TOP TIP: when you have many components to place, it's a great idea to lay everything out as you want it BEFORE sticking anything down. Take a photo of the composition to refer back to before sticking!

Done! (I cannot believe I'll be doing Mays calendar page Next! 😯)

I'd love to see what you've done with your calenders.

Until next time, take care.
