Anything but a card for tttc#034

Tic, Tac, Toe #34 Challenge

I chose the left vertical line of the tttc#34, Anything but a card, die cut, and green.  I’m doing my very first vendor fair this weekend and wanted to have a little something for a door prize.  After spending time on Pinterest, I decided on mini-desk calendars.  Since that is the anything but a card, I needed a die cut and used the Stitched Shapes die set.  The final element is green, so I used some Garden Green and Lemon Lime cardstock on a base of Painted Harvest DSP.   The base of the calendar and the ink are Garden Green.  The Beautiful You stamp set provided the sentiment.

The Calendar Base

Figuring out the base involved a great deal of trial and error.  I couldn’t find anything on Pinterest or YouTube that matched the size that I needed, which meant I had to figure out my own measurements.  Don’t get me wrong, I love math, but this is where the trial and error occurred. The best thing I can share with you is to use a card-like base for the front and back.  The mountain fold was a 4 inch x 4 inch cardstock square scored at 1, 2 , and 3 inches,   The mountain fold is attached to the open ends of the calendar base.   Once I figured out the measurements, I quickly cut all the pieces I needed to make a total of 6 calendars.  The remaining 5 calendars are below:


I used the Every Day Label Punch for the sentiment and punched one lighter one for the sentiment. The mat is another punch cut in half, spread apart, and adhered to the back of the sentiment.
