Gelli plate ATC christmas card class

Tonight its playtime with friends and we are making Christmas ATCs which we will turn into cards… and we are making 6 of them! Yes it sounds like a challenge but sure we can pull it off! I actually made 8 as samples but I think thay might be a bit much with only one mini gelli plate between us! 

I used distress inks in a range of colours that I thought worked as Christmas colours. 

I love how these all came out… such beautiful panels to work with… and each one is it’s own work of art.  So then I pulled out a few sets of stamps and made the panels into the individual toppers. 

So there are my 8 works of art… next step to cut them out and mount them before adding them to a card blank… Will update later with the final samples and of course pics of what we end up with tonight! 

Happy crafting!

Later edit… here are the samples… I added a few simple embellishments and mounted them all onto the dark green ATCs I had die cut. Then added them all onto C6 card blanks… one with an additional piece of patterned paper as I wanted to show that they work with the patterned paper too!  I doodles round some and on others raised them up on foam tape to add dimension.  I also added wink of stella to a few elements to give some shimmer.  (The other two did get made into cards too but didn’t provide them as samples for the class!)

And a much later edit… here is what I made tonight… I only managed to make three cards but I made lots and lots of backgrounds to make into something another day!
