Day 9 - Christmas ATCs

For all the alternative scrappers out there, there are alternatives to Christmas cards. Seriously! If you believe that great things (and Christmas greetings!) can come in small packages, why not try a Christmas ATC (artist trading card)? The only rule is that they need to measure 3 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches - stay within that, and the ATC is your oyster!

I have loved making ATCs since I found out about them earlier this year and since then there's been no stopping me! I was excited to figure out how to give them a Christmas slant and went looking for tiny festive embellies! I tried a few different styles, some more bright and festive with lots of glitz and others with a more vintage feel. Enjoy!
