Calendar Easel Cards

So what do you give to a friend
who is also a co-worker in your office?

How about an easel card calendar?!

These were a lot of fun to make!
The hardest part was picking the paper and embellies!
Cuz there are so many possiblities!

Here's all 3 together:

First, let's look at Elvis....not a hard thing to do!  ;)
I have a friend who is a HUGE Elvis fan,
and this will do nicely!
 The picture is popped up for texture,
and I cut out a guitar to pop up, too.
The white button is a brad, with a paper-popped, music-note studded star
to prop it up!

My other friend is a nature-lover.
So I went with butterflies for hers!
Who doesn't love butterflies, after all...
You can't see it too well in the above picture,
but I added irredescent glitter to the wings
and across the top "ribbon."

 Added a flower made from bookprint
and popped a cut-out butterfly to the base.
I love this paper, but I can't remember who makes it...

This one is fun and bubbly, just like the friend it is for!
She loves vibrant colors!

Added glitter to the "flower" on the base...

And popped it up for depth and interest!
(sorry for the bad lighting!)

Here's a picture from the side showing how the easel part works.

Nice handmade gifts that will last all year!
