Children ATCs – Theme Thursday

Now, how to combine that with Christmas? Here are 2 ATCs I made this evening which I shall use for Christmas cards this year! What a delightful challenge from Theme Thursday!


The one on the left is an image from Crafty Individuals and the other is downloaded from…??? Why is it I can never remember where these children come from? The fake snow is 3D paint (Anita’s) and I used the CB snowflake folder on some card I got from the Scrapstore which I sanded a bit to reveal the grey beneath the black coating. The Dufex greeting is years old from my Christmas stash box!

On the other hand, the left hand words are cut from a Christmas strips pack which I won at PaperCraft Junkies in a giveaway – very varied. I knew they’d be useful! The criss-cross beads on nylon are from Sian – added dimension and I’ve used them on a bona fide card today aswell. They’re cute, aren’t they?!! The background is from a gesso stamped/painted sheet of cardstock I was experimenting with…
