Christmas ATCs

Hi friends! I hope it’s not too awfully hot where you are! It’s pretty warm here but our humidity is low so it never feels quite as warm as it really is. You know how I love ATCs so I created a set of six with three cards and three coins, and they are pretty sparkly and wintery!

Not only are ATCs fun, but they are easy and work up quickly for the most part. I grabbed the two snowy Christmas stamp sets I wanted to use and stamped six sentiments in teal ink and cut them into strips. I cut two sets of card bases with the trimmer and punched two sets of coin bases with a 2-1/2″ circle punch. I arranged snowflakes from the two stamp sets on my stamp positioner and stamped the backgrounds in teal ink. I moved the bases ever so slightly to off-set the stamping, stamped again in Versamark, applied iridescent sparkle embossing powder and heat embossed. I adhered each sentiment to a strip of teal cardstock and then adhered one to each card and coin. Super happy with how these turned out!
