My Time To Craft 'ATC' Challenge

Good morning all, how are we all doing on this cold and frosty morning?

Today we start a new challenge at My Time To Craft and this week we are challenging you to ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) and let me tell you this was definitely a challenge for me. Having not made one before I was looking for the necessary measurements to start with which are 3.5" x 2.5" and once I saw those I was thinking what on earth can I fit on that!

However I turned to my trusty Silhouette Cameo and came up with two ATC's, go me. The first one was a bit of a trial and I started by creating my size on my cameo mat and then seeing what worked best. I cut a star background and used that as a mask, inking through it with Faded Jeans, Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks lightest colour at the bottom.  Then cut my three tree's adding the smaller two flat and raising the middle biggest one on foam tape.

The second one was actually a card design that I shrank, cutting all the necessary elements but then adding some snow to the ground.

I will be back shortly with my Crafty Calendar Challenge post.
 Have a lovely weekend.
