ATC Happiness Card

Hello girls!

I haven't posted anything during the past weekend, but today I have an ATC to show you. One of very creative ladies Natalie Z. *Paselska*, who's blog I'm following, recently posted the pictures of very nice and beautiful ATC cards she made & I couldn't resist asking her to trade one of them with me.

I have never made ATC's before, so the work I'm sharing with you here is my first try at 'scrapping' a really tiny (2.5" X 3.5X) piece of art :)

Some time ago I printed out the Tiddly Inks Wryn digi "Grow a little love", but some thing went wrong with the image size settings and the printed out Wryn was only 2.5" in height, so I had to put her aside. For the ATC though she was perfect.

I've colored her with Copics of the following colors:
Skin: E0000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E39, E37, E35, E33
Dress: B97, B95, B93, B91
Shoes + Hearts: R29, R24, R22

On the hearts and on the flowers I used Distress Dry Glitter:

To enrich the layout, I've added a piece of cheesecloth and stitched the sides of the card:

The ATC is actually a pocket, and inside of it there's a fun Happiness Card, which was stamped with the 7 Gypsies wood mounted stamp. In addition, there's another tag on the back of the card, stamped with the Catslife Press stamp:

Both the tag and the card may be pulled out:

As soon as Natalie will provide me with her postal address, the ATC will be on the way to her and I hope she will like it :)

  1. Hi Alexandra,
    First time and you done so well.
    I am really amazed how much you managed to fit in such a tiny little card.

  2. КАКАЯ красота, словами не передать.. И как красиво разукрашенно.. Супер...Не могу нарадоватся, что это мне:))

  3. חוץ מזה שיצא מקסים וכל כך חי, אני חייבת להחמיא לך גם על הצילומים. הם בהירים, צבעים חיים, הרבה אור ופשוט עושים חסד עם העבודה. כל הכבוד, אשמח לטיפים בצילום.... ענת

  4. Layers and layers of loveliness with the extra tags, what a super idea.
    Thank you for taking time out your day to post this beautiful project with us at Word Art Wednesday,

  5. מקסים. כל כך יפה שהלכתי לבדוק מה זה ATC :-) אני בטוחה שמי שתקבל את זה תהנה מאוד.
    מה עושים עם כל ה- ATC שמקבלים? שמים בקופסא?

    1. אני מניחה שכן, מאחסנים בקופסא.
      כמו שמאחסנים עוד כל מיני דברים... מחזיקי מפתחות, מטבעות, ועוד מלא שטויות שאנשים אוהבים לאסוף :)

  6. WOW!!! Beautiful card! Thank you for joining us at Sister Act Card Challenge!
