Is it a Card or is it an ATC?

Is it a Card or is it an ATC?  Today, it's BOTH!  I had so much fun teaching this class a couple of months ago.  I wanted to teach ATCs to a new group of people but I thought I would be practical and they could make cards and attach the ATCs if they wanted to mail them to a friend.
All supplies available from my A Muse Studio Store.
First up is a card made using the British Invasion set from A Muse Studio.  Someday I will go to London and see how beautiful it is up above from the London Eye!  The background here is made using the Let Freedom Ring set which I stamped using my Versamark pad and colored using the pretty Pebbles Shimmer Chalks.  Add some Washi tape and Glitter with a pretty twinkle sticker in the center to add a little glitz.  The sentiment is cut from a book page and I outlined it using my Copic Multiliner pen.  The stripe of glitter is added to some sticky 1/2" tape to make an easy and perfect sparkly stripe!

To make this into a card, I simply stamped in pumpkin ink on pumpkin paper using one of our Swanky Background stamps.  Easy and fun!  I put an ATC sleeve on the front of the card so you can pull the ATC out and put it in your collection.

The second card is using our Come Fly with Me set with the beautiful Eiffel Tower!  The top paper is one of my favorites--clouds! I tore a piece off and outlined the clouds with my Multiliner.  The bottom background is just some direct-to-paper stamping with the Grape and Onyx pads.  I added some hand-drawn posies and drew shadow lines around the tower for fun.  If you look at the close-up you can see how the ATC sparkles.  Our Stardust Finishing Spray is the prettiest sparkle spray out there!  It is clear with iridescent sparkles that pick up the color of your project.

To make the card I stamped using the Mad For Plaids Background zig zag stamp to make an Onyx frame for the Grape-colored card.  Now I'm off to bed where I will dream of flying away to Paris so I can see the Eiffel Tower and sing songs about love!

I love your atc/card. A very nice idea to mount atc's to cards.
