2020 Calendar - The Cutting Cafe

Creative Creases has Memorial Weekend Extravaganza for "Anything Goes with a Fun Fold" and has waived the backlinking for this challenge.  Sure saves a lot of time in creating over this Weekend and still be able to show one of your favorite past creations.  

05/28/21 Resubmitted to:  

This is my project for The Cutting Café "2020 Calendar".  I didn't want to hide the beautiful floral background so I used some butterfly dies that were quite open.  However, because I'm addicted to layers, I got a little crazy and decided there should be a couple flowers in the corner and added a gem in the center.  And then...why not another butterfly on the window of the calendar since it didn't hide the vision.  The box was made with another coordinate design paper to hold a pen/pencil.  

Added a window to the front of the calendar holder, flipped to the side, adhered holder closer to left-side to allow room for a floral tab for each of the months using the smallest of the same floral. The calendars were printed on Vellum and adhered to the frame of each month. Using the same sizing as the calendar I created a backside to record events for the month and adhered to the back of the month calendar. Added a little bling to the window frame.  

On the back side of the Holder...another design paper was used to adhere the 2020 Holiday Schedule and another butterfly to match the one in the front left-hand corner.
