Vintage ATC cards using Couture Creations dies.

8:00:00 AM

Welcome to another blogpost with me Jowilna - today i am sharing a set of 
Vintage ATC cards with you
If you are a paper crafter then i am sure you are a hoarder right? you say what if, and one day really a lot don't you? yes you know I am right!
So todays project is one of those one day's....
years ago when i had more time on my hands i started a set of ATC cards. They were (are) really pretty and vintage looking but needed something to finish them off and a home. So when I was cleaning up the studio last week I found them in a packet all ready and waiting to be finished...and here they are
I used some of the amazing Couture Creations dies to dress them up and finally finish them off - and i love how the die-cuts just adds enough of a something different
 I used this cute little Rocking Horse | CO723518 from the Secret Treasures range. I cut it out of a smooth thick brown cardstock and inked the edges in white Brilliance pigment ink to soften the edges a bit and add a worn vintage look to it. Once the ink was dry and I adhered it to my ATC card I added a layer of dimensional glaze and left it to dry overnight.
For my next card I used the gorgeous Paddington Street Lamp – CO723740
from the Metricon Collection as well as the Art Deco Border – CO723738 from the same collection.
 I cut the Paddington lamp out of white cardstock and then separated the cut so that i had two pieces to work with. I coloured them separately using dark brown ink and left them to dry. The scroll part of the die was adhered to my other ATC card and dressed up simply with a couple of adhesive diamante.


I adhered the light part to my third ATC card with a halved portion of the Art deco border I stapled to the top of the card. Once the lamp part was set and well glued down I added some "Sepia" dimensional accents inside and left it to dry. Once it was dry it gave the look of old stained glass.
 I think this Art deco border die must be one of my favourite and most versatile dies ever!
