Splitcoast stampers has a great tutorial for making easel calendars that will fit in an A2 envelope, so I gave it a go and made one from snippets in my stash.
The card base is Melon Mambo and I used a snippet of oyster cardstock to mat the SU! retired dsp. The dragonfly is a recycle from a card that was sent to me. It had been silver embossed, but I added some Copic fluorescent colors to give it some life and added a big gemstone to the body for some sparkle. The "2018" was done with my Quickutz and Olivia numbers. The tutorial includes the file to print the calendars too, so I've already made several of these and hope to make more. They will be a nice addition to a gift basket or a nice surprise in the mail.
Thanks for stopping by and make it a great week ahead.
