Dates to Remember Card File
I chose a font in Word and printed the twelve months of the year on white card stock. I allowed enough room between the months so I could utilize my other Cuttlebug tags die to cut out the month tags. This die has some ornamental embossing on it so it spiffed them up just a little. After centering the months on the die and cutting them all out, I chose to ink up the edges with purple ink to make them pop just a little bit more and affixed them to the envelope flap. Just a note here: If you ink the edges of the tags, make sure you blot them or they will bleed onto the lined cards that contain the dates for the month.
I used some green colored rings I had picked up at the Scrapbook Expo back in October. I added some ribbon to them to match the colors of the papers. I chose not to add dimensional embellishments to the pages or to the cover as I don't know if the recipient will carry it with her while out and about or if she will leave it at home.
I think it would be a great idea if giving this as a gift I was to include a couple of different cards for the recipient, say a baby card, wedding card, or a birthday card. Hope you enjoyed my take on this great project. Imagine, Create, and Enjoy!
