Countdown to Christmas ATCs pt 1

So as I have finished my 365 ATC challenge early I’ve decided to concentrate on Christmas themed ATCs which will be turned into card toppers for my cards this year.  I would love to know if you are also making Christmas themed ATC’s… please do let me know in the comments below so I can pop and see blogs/pics of what you are making! 

Here are the first two in this collection that I am calling the Countdown to Christmas ATCs… no idea how many I will do and not setting a challenge as such … just still enjoying creating mini works of art! 

Both of these are distress oxide backgrounds with stamped silhouette images and Tim Holtz sticker sentiments with some gold pen outlining and mounted onto some cherry cobbler textured cardstock.

I love the earthy finish to these … the frayed burlap worked beautifully with the fired brick and candied apple.  

I think these will look great with some kraft coloured card stock base … but the making them into cards will have to wait … for now I will just enjoy them as ATCs! 

And as they qualify for the challenge of “mini marvels” at Vintage Journey I am entering them over there! 

I also enter them for the anything goes challenge at crafting with an attitude and the anything goes for Christmas challenge at sweet stampin

Happy crafting!
