Making ATC’s and a Freebie

Hi everyone, Ginny here. Last night I made an ATC for a swap, I Love making and receiving  ATC’s! I thought I would
One of the most import factors about a great ATC is the quality of paper they are made on.  Premium papers always
Premium papers always helps yield premium results.
ATCs are meant to be collected, I have some over 20 years old!
ATC’s are always 3.5×2.5.  I cut paper  in batches Just for ATC’s
This is my recipe for a long lasting and beautiful ATC:
Base layer: 100# kraft
Framing layer: Neenah Black 80#
Art layer: Heavenly White 120# – for hand stamping and Heavenly White 80# for ink jet  printing
Back Signature layer: Heavenly White 80#
I use Glue to hold things together  for all of my ATCs
Here is the one I made last night
I used a digital image and printed on 80# Heavenly White.   I added black glitter to the sash shaded with soft gray to make the image pop,
hand stamped the “friend” and added bling.  For this ATC I also added a layer of Silver paper for more Wow factor.
I clear coated the printed image with Lineco glue.
The back of the card is Important too, you need to have your Artist info on the back.
Knowing  who and when and why you received the ATC is a big part of the fun!
I created an ATC back for you, you can print these off on your printer and hand write the info.
I made this to print to correct size, download and then copy and paste into word for the set or change up the sizes with the individuals.

These I also print up in batches and cut them.  I have a draw that all these parts are stored in so I can just sit down and play!  Often an oops card can be turned into t brilliant ATC!
