Hello, crafty friends! It’s been a short week for many of you in the States with the July 4th holiday – hope it was a great celebration! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Craft For The Craic and I’m excited to share my GD inspiration project for the July Handmade Flowers challenge! I made ANOTHER perpetual calendar – I really love this cut file as it makes them so easy to throw together! Hope you don’t mind seeing two in a row… I actually made this one prior to the green one and did not intend for them to be posted back-to-back but since they were for two different design teams and two different types of challenges, that’s just how it worked out! :\
The double-sided paper is from Dare 2B Artzy and really brings the orange and navy blue color combo together in a beautiful way. The month stamps are from Stampin’ Up and are just the perfect size for the boxes.
The navy blue Glittered Gumdrops coordinate with the numbers on the cubes and the handmade flowers across the bottom of the base.
I’m really loving how these turned out and can see more of them in my future, lol! The two I’ve made so far are gifts for a couple special ladies in my life. I hope they like them!
