ATCs

Does anyone else hate mass producing cards? I do!! I think that I just get bored doing the same thing over and over again. I like to make 1 card and then move on to something totally different. Anyhow, my stamp club is meeting up this Saturday and I needed to come up with something to swap....so I decided to do an ATC (artist trading card). I have been admiring AmyR's ATCs here and that is where I got the layout inspiration from.

ATCs measure 3.5 x 2.5, so even though you are still mass producing, it goes by quicker. Here is a template so you can get 10 ATCs out of 1 piece of 8 1/2 x 11 carstock. My base piece of cs is a green color made by Archiver's. Sorry I don't know the name, but they send out coupons each month to come in and pick out 5 free sheets of their cs and I just happend to pick this one up. My pattern paper* is by Creative Imaginations, and it is backed with some Basic Black cs. My sentiment comes from a TAC set called Tag Tidbits.

This is my first time to use Cosmobella and she is too cute. I colored her using my SU markers. I then used the 4th ring on my circle Coluzzle and cut her out. She is glued to a piece of Summer Sun* cs. The edges were decorated with some scallop scissors from Michael's. To finish it all off I punched a hole and tied some Michael's ribbon on the side, then added a couple primas. Oh and I went over her drink with a Sakura Stardust pen.

*Just a side note, my camera must hate these colors because they so didn't come out right and I took way to many photos trying to get it right until I just got frustrated and gave up, LOL.
