It's All About ATCs Today!!

Happy Monday Morning everyone!

I do hope this morning finds you well and raring to go, whatever your day holds for you.

Today, I want to share with you some ATCs.....2 sets in fact, one for ATC Swappers and the other for Ali's ATC Swap Stop!

The first are for ATC Swappers, where the theme was 'In My Heart.'

I used pink and brown heartbeat papers from Crafty Stash, the image is called Ruby Chocolate from Bugaboo, and the sentiment is part of a collection called Chocolate Girls purchased from SBM. I have coloured Ruby with Promarkers and used foam pads to attach her, for added dimension.

The 2nd set of ATCs are for Ali's ATC Swap Stop! where the theme was 'Seeing Red.'

I have used Strawberry Shortcake as my inspiration for these.....those of you who are old enough will remember her from the 1970s. They are little pocket ATCs with a recipe card for Strawberry Shortcake tucked inside.

(Double-sided recipe card)

Here's a closer look at them with the recipe cards inside....

..................and without the recipe cards..............

I have used a strawberry photo as the base card, added papers from the Strawberry Splash collection at Crafty Stash for the diagonal pocket-front. I added a red ribbon strip and an image of Strawberry Shortcake herself to each ATC (coloured with Sakura Glaze pens and Promarkers.) Then I made the double-sided recipe cards (and added a little ribbon loop to make it easier to get them in/out) which slides into the holder.

I would like to enter my Strawberry Shortcake ATCs into the SECRET CRAFTER SATURDAY CHALLENGE #123 - Sweet Treats, and
THE PAPER SHELTER #2 - Seeing Red (which was the theme for my ATCs too!)
Hope you like them! Thanks for Looking and Happy Crafting!
