IBS Aster Easel

Happy Mondayi! 

For my Inspired by Stamping DT post today I have a special easel card using the Flower of the Month: Aster stamp set. The ‘special’ part is that this easel card is designed to be used on your desk throughout the year. I have included a tear-off full-year calendar and pack of post-it notes.


So, let’s get started!


My easel card is a generous size, measuring 5½ x 5½. After stamping and coloring the beautiful Aster image, I used dimensionals to attach it to the easel.


The ‘On This Day’ sentiment is from the versatile Pretty Planners stamp set. It seemed an appropriate sentiment to go along with the calendar.


The post-it notes hold the easel upright.


Now comes the tough part—do I keep this for myself or give it to a dear friend whose birthday is in January?!?!?

I hope you enjoyed my special easel card. This is a great project to make as a gift (or to keep for yourself!). 

Please visit the Inspired by Stamping Blog to see what Jo is sharing along with me today. 

Until next time…
