Calendar Card Using CTMH Chelsea Gardens Paper, with Stamp and Dies

Hello friends!   It has cooled down here to the 60's; which is cold for Southern CA.  I like the cooler temperatures; spring like weather; but not the cold weather many of you are having across the US.

I had created my sister, Alice a calendar card; then realized I couldn't give it away.  I needed to keep it for me.  LOL!  I gave her other options; so this is the calendar card that I have created for her now.  She was just as excited to get this one; as it takes up less space; which is what she needed to be able to display it for the year. 

I have created several of these calendar cards; and probably have a few more to create.  LOL!  I found the general instructions from a Tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers; after I had already bought some little calendars from Ebay.  This tutorial provides you a link for a free calendar that you can print and cut yourself.  I used the calendar on five calendar cards that were white backgrounds so far.  Everyone has loved them.

CTMH Chelsea Gardens Paper, Stamp and Thin Cuts
Thin Cuts are no longer available; but the stamp set is available
You just need to fussy cut them; which isn't hard with these images.
