ATC Set & Holder

I made this set of ATC's and was inspired by the talented Natalie to make a holder to go with it.  Although Natalie was very kind to send me instructions on how to make the holder, I kind of went off and did my own, but thank you very much for the inspiration!

Here are a few photos of what I made:



The ATC's were all made with Alcohol Inks for the backgrounds, Hero Art Stamps, a splatter stamp from Stampers' Anonymous, some lovely patterned paper trims from Basic Grey and K & Company, gems from my stash, jute from Michaels and stickers from Cosmo Cricket.

Here are a few pictures of the holder I made from one standard sheet of Kraft cardstock and some long envelopes for the inside pockets. (I cut off the two ends of each long envelope which gave me two pockets.  I made 5 of those as there was an additional ATC in there which is on my previous post.) I decorated the front with some Jute, some die cuts that Tiffany had sent me and a brad from Recollections.


 I stamped the above envelope pockets with a beautiful stamp from Hero Arts.

This is what it looks like filled with 5 ATC's. I was very chuffed with myself, that means happy / pleased where I come from.  The truth is, I really love that patterned paper!

Have an awesome day!  The humidity here has suddenly decided to say HELLO in a big way!
