When I saw this Penny Black Mushroom Girl stamp set, I knew I had to get it for my autumn calendar card. I like to make calendars with a fall theme because it sort of fits throughout the year unlike Xmas images. The background paper is from my stash of double-sided card stock with trees or leaves (best to organize papers by subject).
I colored the image with Copic pens (plus a little pink Stickles) and masked it off before adding the blue sky that was sprayed with silver. The Blessings was cut from copper colored foil paper which was run through a Xyron sticker maker to apply an adhesive. To minimize the stickiness after adhesion I dusted it with cornstarch.
The card die has a little flap that holds up the card front and makes a space for the Vippies calendar.
Here is a view of how simply the card sets up into a calendar for a desk.
As you can see the die for the 'Blessings' actually said 'Winter Blessings' but I cut off the winter part. This die is now available at HM Ben Franklin Crafts in the Christmas craft section. I was very pleased with this project and will include these calendars with my family newsletters. Hopefully, I will actually be early this year. Yay me!
