I made this one with the holly stamped image that comes in the kit. I colored the holly with watercolor pencils, cut around it, then distressed and curled the holly leaves to make it pop off of the ATC. You'd be surprised what you can do with an image stamped on plain white paper. I used the double-sided paper bits that were cut from the 3 in. x 4 in. after I cut down my paper to 2 1/2 in. x 3 1/2 in. for my ATC background. I save every little piece! I love the new Corrigated ATCs! A kraft piece will be included in this. Paint it, ink it, distress it, stamp it...oh so many things to do with this! Here is a link to the store if you would like to purchase some. The corrigated ATC paper comes in packs of 10 in both kraft and white. http://youratcstore.com/atc-cards-c-29.html

I chose some circus paper from the GCD Studios Funhouse Collection; The World's Greatest and Sideshow. You will receive two 3 in. x 4 in. piece of cardstocks, one from each of those. There is also a piece of pastel fuzzy fiber that coordinates with the paper. Also, in this kit will be a clown image (there are 8 different clowns), a childs ticket, popcorn container image, a black & white clown hat that you can color to match your clown, and a miniature circus poster (there are 10 different ones). There is also a raffle ticket, a white or royal blue brad, 3 different colors of gem droplets, and a charm that is an elephant standing on a ball; perfect for your circus ATC. Lastly, a blank white ATC card and an ATC sleeve.
Below is my Clowning Around ATC. My ATC was made with only items in this kit, although I didn't use every item in the kit. You can save the extras for another ATC later. I cut out the orange banner from on of the 3 in. x 4 in. pieces and glued it to the chipboard that is included in the kit. I also used chipboard on the clown hat (that I colored to match my clown), and the triangle at the bottom of the card.

I distressed the embossed ATC with blue ink to match the blueprint patterned cardstock. I cut a small portion off the ATC, and glued it to the other paper that comes in the kit. I ripped the clock vellum and glued that to the left edge of the ATC. I then glued the Maya Road clock at the top and used a brad to attach the minute hand. Next, I cut out the man, hat, and 2 gear images and glued them to the ATC as shown above. I cut and glued the bingo token image so it would fit onto the charm. I then glued the charm over the man's eyes. Finally I cut around the word, "Steampunk" and glued that and the vintage date watch piece to complete my ATC. I hope you like it! Feel free to leave a comment!
