Summer Seashell Card/Calendar

 I've had these Sister Sister beach stamps all summer and I'm only now getting around to inking them up.  This one of Aulii with the starfish is my favorite.  I paired it with the K and Co. shell decorative paper.  For the cool pop-up card base I used a Sizzix die set that I purchased at the Hilo HM Ben Franklin Crafts (found it in the clearance bin...1/2 priced!).  This wonderful set includes lots of dies that are not shown on the package front like 'take care', decorative border, and fancy shapes.
This useful die made it so easy-peasy to cut out  the card and parts that I decided to turn the cards into calendars and make lots.  Don't worry; I will put 2016 calendars on the ones I mail out.  I think the saying from the Paper Smooches stamp set is perfect for a calendar coming from Hawaii.  I have more styles of calendars to show in my coming posts.  Please come back to see them. Happy Crafting!
