I am a new empty nester, and I love to make cards and ATCs. I am always looking for ways to use the product I have, to learn new techniques and ways to do things, and most of all, to have fun with the creating of my art.

These are the ATCs/tags that I did for my Patterned Paper as the focal point of the ATC swap (which is due in my hands Dec 31). I started with some Kraft cardstock, cut to 3 1/2 inches x 5 inches, scored and folded at 2 1/2 inches, to make it ATC sized. I then took Tea Dye Distress Ink, and stamped the Hero Arts Musical Background stamp on the front of the ATC. Once that was done, I took the SU ornament punch, and punched out an ornament shape on the left side of the ATC. I then took my Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses reindeer paper, and cut out 2 inch circles with a reindeer in the centre. I lined up the reindeer to be in the centre of the ornament, then I taped it down to the inside of the ATC. I took some white cardstock, cut it to 1 1/2 x 3/4 of an inch, and stamped Peace from Hero Arts Merry Christmas Tree set in Aged Mahogany. I foam mounted that to the front of the ATC. All that's left for me to do is stamp the To and From on the inside of the ATC. I did 10 of these. Very simple to make, and are perfect for gift tags, as well as ATCs.
