Anne's Video Tutorial

 

I made this ATC card for  Graphic 45 CHA winter 2014. Used with the gorgeous Sweet Sentiments paper collection! It was so much fun fussy cutting out the images and most of  the images are pop up with pop dots ( 3D foam) Covered with Claudine Hellmuth multi matte and stickles to make them sparkly. I saved the frames when I cut out the images and used some of them here on this cards.

Here is a picture of the envelope and card. Great to use some bubble plastic inside also if you are mailing it.

Fantastic cards! Thanks for the tutorial, this will come in handy.

Oh my the ATC card by Anne is amazing. She can fussy cut a postage stamp and make something out of it. I so admire her for her wonderful fussy cutting and her creativity in every project she creates.

Holey Moley....that's a lot of fussy cutting on Anne's project. Don't think I'd have the patience or skill to do that lovely of a job. But what an exquisite end result!!!
