Shrinkin' It Up ATC Style

Oh! It's been so much fun seeing all the Verve Diva's shrink their "thang" down to 2.5"x3.5"!!!! I knew they could all rock the 4.5x5.25 sized cards like nobody's business, but who'd of thought they could do the same thing with something sooooooo small?

I have to be honest, I've done exactly 3 of these little guys in my short lifetime, this one being the 3rd! I've had an aversion to them because they're as much work as a standard sized card! I'm sure it will come as no surprise to you that just the thought of making inchies give me hives! But shhhhhh, I better watch what I say, cuz now that I've said the word inchies, Shannan is FOR SURE gonna make them our next challenge!!!! Hopefully she's too busy to be reading my post today....a girl can only hope, can't she...????.

Awwww, I'm just kiddin' with ya, I had lots of fun making my ATC for you today. It was really a simple layout using the flower from the Verve Feeling Groovy set, a sentiment from Seeing Stars, and the square underneath the flower is from Asian Flair. I stamped the flower twice, once with brown ink, and once with Tangerine Tango (my favorite new In Color by SU). I sponged around the edges of both flowers with Tangerine Tango (see, I told you I love it). I mounted one flower on top of the other, and then mounted the double flower on top of the square from Asian Flair. A simple straight stitch around the card finished it off.

Want to see what I did with my ATC after I was done with it? I added it to the front of an empty journal! The background paper was made using the flower from Feeling Groovy. I loved how it turned out!

Well, now that you've seen another Verve Diva rock an ATC, so it's time for you to do the same. Check out this post for more details on what you have to do to win $15 in Verve bucks. The contest is open until noon (Eastern time) on July 31st, so there's still time for you to shrink your "thang" ATC style!
