Alrighty then, I will lay the steps of this project out for you in a way that is easy to understand.....I hope!!!!

  1. You will need 1- 4 1/4 x 11" and 1- 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" piece of Lavender Fusion cardstock. 1 piece of Limeade Splash at 3 1/8 x 3 1/8 ( post it note) and 1 piece at 3 1/8 x 2 3/8 for calendar).  2 pieces of Brights 12 x 12 paper at 4" x 5 1/4".

  3. After the 4 1/4 x 11" is scored fold it so that it looks like the picture below. easel card fold   4.  Adhere the brights paper to the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Lavender Fusion CS.  This is a good time to decorate with embellishments, flowers, butterflies,etc. ,while you can still lay it flat on a work surface. Around the edges of the flowers I used a sponge, and Grape Fusion Ink to add dimension.  For the leaves I also used a sponge and Limeade Splash around the edges and folded the leaves in half. Embellished and decorated.   5. This step is VERY Important!  Place adhesive only on one half of the scored cardstock.  See picture.

  6. Now add the stamped and decorated piece from step 5 to the section above with adhesive on it. Line up the bottom edges of CS . 7.   Before you add the piece of 3 1/8 x 3 1/8" Limeade Splash CS to the card, cut a small piece of CS (1/2" x 3"), or a piece of ribbon.  This will go under the left edge of the piece of Limeade Splash CS for the pen or pencil to slip through.   ** curl the small strip of CS with your Crease tool before adhering it under the post it note. easel pen Add the post it note holder last.   easel card   That's it.
