Gatefold Easel Calendar Card - Couture Creations

Hi Everyone, Anet here today and welcome to my inspiration post.

I made a Gatefold Easel Calendar Card with the Lavender Love Collection from Couture Creations





I found the inspiration from Susan's Blog. I did not follow all her steps, instead I made some changes and put my spin on it.

Step by Step Instructions:

My video tutorial below will show you how to create the fabulous Gatefold Easel Card & Calendar and you will also find all the measurements.

I trimmed Smooth White Cardstock, score and fold the cardstock to create the card base.

I cut Navy Cardstock, Lavender Love Patterned Paper 3 and 4 layered it onto each other and adhered it onto the card base.


I then cut Navy Cardstock to 2 1/8" x 3 1/8" layered the Calendar Tab 2023 onto the cardstock and adhered onto the card base. 

I also die-cut Paper Bag Cardstock with the Lavender Love Weathered Fences Die and adhered it onto the card base. Following from this I also added Lavender Love Ephemera.


For the stopper of the easel card I die-cut Smooth White Cardstock with the Modern Essentials Nesting Inset Oval Frame Cut, Foil and Emboss Die. Follow my video tutorial below to learn how to add this feature.

I stamped the Flourish & Thrive Box Christmas Bells Sentiment Stamp onto the smooth white cardstock die-cut using the Embossing Ink Pad, Mirror Platinum Classic Metallics Embossing Powder and heat embossing it. I then added Emerald Green Adhesive Pearls and adhered it onto the card base.


Belly Band

I trimmed Navy Cardstock to 1 1/4" x 10" and decorated it with stamping the Flourish & Thrive Box Leaf Waxflowers Sentiment Stamp onto the smooth white cardstock die-cut using the Embossing Ink Pad, Mirror Platinum Classic Metallics Embossing Powder and heat embossing it. 


I then added Emerald Green Adhesive Pearls, Green Mulberry Paper Long Grass, Baby Blue and White Lavender Stems and adhered it onto the belly band to finish.

Hi Everyone, hope you are all having a good week. I would like to share a card with you that I am entering into the Altenew October 2022 Inspiration Challenge.



I enjoyed creating this card using the Altenew Inspiration Photo.  

I first die-cut gold cardstock using the Altenew Scallops Cover Die. My idea was to create a garden wired fence background and the scallop die-cut background gives it an elegant and beautiful texture.


I then stamped the Altenew Build-A-Flower Laelia Leaf Stamp onto white cardstock and die-cut it using the Altenew Build-A-Flower Laelia Leaf Die. I adhered it onto the card front using 3D foam dots.

Following on from this I stamped the Altenew Majestic Bloom Flower onto blending cardstock and coloured it with Copic Sketch Markers. I added it onto the card front using 3D foam dots.

I then foiled and die-cut white cardstock with a Hotfoil Stamp, Gold Heat Activated Foil and Foil Machine.

Following on from this I adhered the foiled sentiment onto the card front using 3D foam dots and added gemstones to finish.

Material list:

  • Altenew Majestic Bloom Add-On Layering Stamp Set
  • Altenew Scallops Cover Die
  • Altenew Build-A-Flower Laelia Stamp and Die Set

I would like to enter the following challenges:
