These are the two ATCs I made for a Pennywise Arts swap. This first one was for the theme "Winter Wonderland." I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the paper with the snowflake and then swipped two different shades of blue across the embossing. I then covered the ATC with double-sided sticky tape and covered the ATC in diamond glitter. Then I stamped the snowman on a separate piece of paper; painted the nose & scarf; covered it with double-sided sticky tape and transparent glass micro beads. I then adhered the snowman to the snowflake card.
This next one was my interpretation of "Wise Men Still Seek Him." It's a trifold ATC. I used Glimmer Mist to create the blue backing. The wise men and mother & child are clip art. The mother & child are popped up from the card. The star has gold micro beads on it.
I was lucky enough to win the Hostess Choice Award for this card. I received a purple ribbon for it and the card below.
The back of the card reads, "Congratulations! You have received the Hostess Choice Award! For: Wise Men Still Seek Him. This award is given to ONE ATC swap participant for what I call 'EYE CANDY.' This could be based upon several things: composition, color, originality of design, etc., whatever happens to catch my eye and knock my socks off!" PWA ATC Swap Hostess
