No Cardboard or Paper Background ATCs

I am hosting a swap on one of my yahoo groups with the theme of "no paper or cardboard backgrounds" you were to make an ATC but you couldn't use paper or cardboard as the primary background for your project. I have gotten some of them in already from ladies and wow! they are really imaginative with this one. I wanted to share what I had come up withSo I went to Michael's and found these really cool plastic 8 1/2 x 11 squares with teeny tiny holes in them. I think they are used in needlepoint but not sure. I thought they would be perfect for my project. I distressed inks the background and used some of the new Tim Holtz Christmas dies and a memory box die for the fence to make a scene Christmas scene. Take a look...



  1. What fun Claudine! Was just playing with that die set last night. These turned out great!

  2. What a cool idea for a swap!!! What Yahoo group is this for? Your ATC is awesome too!
