Card Calendar – using a scarf





During the week, I popped into a cheap store and saw a reduced scarf; I loved the look of the fabric and that is where my idea originated from.
Later that day I also saw a small calendar chart and thought that would also work well for a later project.
When I got home I started designing a card using the scarfs fabric, choosing matching papers and accessories that I already had in my stash. The end of the scarf worked great to add texture and movement to the background. I also tied a large bow with the fabric and cut a small section off to create a smaller bow. I coloured in a Lily of the Valley Stamped image with Promarkers, to match my colour scheme. My sentiment was also a stamped image but from a FREE stamp set that came with the 100th issue of Cardmaking Magazine, which was also one of this week’s crafty purchases.
My Lily of the Valley card was really coming along, but I decided to turn this thank you card into a calendar beings as it is nearly the New Year and after all it was being created for someone special, as a big thank you for everything they have done and given me, so I thought I would give something a little bit different and a small gift back for their love and generosity.
