2016 Winter Wonderland DSP Easel Calendar

Yesterday I made the "manly" version of my 2016 easel calendar and today I decided to make a "girly" version.  Stampin' Up!'s Winter Wonderland Specialty DSP is absolutely gorgeous and very elegant, too elegant not to use.  So I decided to use one of the patterns along with the Butterflies Thinlits Dies to come up with this easel calendar.

For this easel card I used Stampin' Up!'s Thick Whisper White card stock which is great for these 3d projects!  I cut the card base at 11" x 4-1/4"".  I scored the base at 5-1/2" and 2-3/4".  On the front of the card base, I folded the 2-3/4" as a mountain fold.  It is this section where I placed my front panel that holds the butterfly and the calendar.  

Here is a diagram of the fold:

For the small calendars, I purchased them from Taylored Expressions.  Click HERE for the link.

  3. I was interested in making the calendar with the framlits die but was confused on the instructions. the piece that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 414and 2 1/8. was that the bottom piece or the top piece with the framlit die on it. I have everything to make the calendar but was a little confused on putting together. Wish you had a video of this one.
