Choose a vintage image from the Internet and printed it on a transparency sheet. Colored a sheet of music with shimmering mist gold (brushed on as the spray nozzle is clogged). Adhered the transparency over the music sheet.
Cut out a 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of the same card stock and adhered the image to it. Cut out the flourish and letters from metallic gold card stock with Cuttlebug dies and added a small red rhinestone. This makes the main ATC front.
On the non glittery side of the long back, adhered the top of the ATC front to the top short flap. On the bottom half, adhered the same gold metallic card stock as used in the embellishments on the front. Used a music border punch on the black glittery card stock to create a "stop" to hold the easel in place.
For mailing, this ATC folds flat and the main ATC front is on top. Hope this makes sense.
Oh my goodness, that is so 'kewl'!!! I wouldn't have thought to decorate the back, but I think I might have to now, it looks fantastic. I know I'm going to love getting these 'little beauties', I hope you enjoyed playing in the swap.
Like Chris, never thought of decorating the back, but mine are already in the envelopes waiting to be mailed.
Love what you came up with and looking forward to receiving it.
This is clever and oh so beautiful.
I love this ATC Carol!!!
