Take Two

Thought I'd share a set of ATC's with you today.  I made these for the February swap over at Cardmaking Downloads forum.
The theme for this month was Love, Friendship or Red.

I chose the love option but steered away from the traditional Valentine Red!!
To make these ATCs I used two decoupage download sheets, Toadally Loved & Toadally a Couple designed by Elaine Hayhoe over at Cardmaking Downloads. The sheets came with matching backing papers which made the job a simple one! (Just as well as the first lot I made went missing in the post! Hence the title Take Two!)
I resized the sheets by adding them to a Word Document. I made them four to a page, which brought them to just the right size, then printed them onto matt photo paper.  I did the same for the papers too then printed them onto cardstock! I cut out & assembled some of the layers from the decoupage sheets using pinflair glue.
I then punched the edges of the printed cardstock using an edge punch & cut to ATC size. I inked the edges then added the decoupage toppers, sentiments & a little pink heart which  found in my stash!
Once again I apologise for the quality of the pic. It was taken at work & the ATCs were still in their little packets but to catch the post I had to be super speedy! I'm already holding up the swap!! I've scheduled this post so fingers crossed it works okay!


  1. They are adorable Dawn, and arrived safely today! (Phew!) I started my ATCs for another swap a few days ago and am using a very similar idea (from the same graphics collection!) Hugs, Ali x

  2. OMG - these are just too cute! Such a shame the first batch went on the missing list :( got to laugh though as will you when the postman gets to you ;) Really hope I'm lucky this month cos I really really really want one lol. x


Thank you for taking the time & trouble to comment! I truly appreciate your feedback!
