Artists Trading Cards I made with next month's kit

Here are my ATCs that I made yesterday. This kit is titled, "December 25th", using the paper and mini tags from the paper collection with the same name. Photo and kit contents will be posted on December 1st. Just place an order in December and the FREE Christmas themed, "December 25th", ATC kit will be placed in with your order. No special code necessary!

The only item I added to these ATCs that was not in the kit was the white ribbon. It needed something, so I thought that would be perfect. It almost looks like a stocking at a quick glance, but I made the above ATC using the mini tag that comes in the kit. Santa was cut from the left side of the tag.
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.
