Beautiful Ladies ATCs

Hi, two weeks ago I promised to share the complete altered pocket page with you that I was creating with unusual card bases.  Today, I have a lot of photos for you.  There is a long list of supplies so I'll list them at the end of the post.  If you want to see a close-up of each of these cards, please see my post over at Altered Pages Artsociates, the Altered Pages blog.  And be sure to submit your original ATC are photos and scans to be featured on the blog!


There are nine ATC cards involved in the project, which means 18 different designs.  Here we go...



And here are the cards inside the plastic pocket page.  The page is folded into three and fits inside a standard #10 envelope!

ATCs - A beginning

Happy Friday!  What does an ATC mean to you?  I can tell you they are little works of art, with dimensions of 2.5" x 3.5", but what are they to you?  Do you swap them?  Put them in lunchboxes to brighten the family's day?  Use them as business cards? 

Today, I'm using them as the building blocks of an altered pocket page.  These are just the base cards and I will share the finished project with you later in the month.  Of course, you can buy cards already cut to the perfect size or make your own from card stock. 

My goal was to use a different type of base for each one.  So in the photos below, you will find a book pocket and check-out card, a glassine envelope, cardboard packaging and, of course, card stock.  Each one was cut to standard ATC size and has the first layer of design.  Most of the scrapbook paper here is from the Glitz Yours Truly paper pad.
