ATC's swap with MFT

So many initials! For those of you who don't know, an ATC is an altered trading card - measuring 3 1/2" X 2 1/2". You make them and then some people collect them and others use them for the front of their finished cards!

I joined a My Favorite Things ATC swap this month and I thought I would show you my finished product!

I used "Start the Day with Whee!" - my favorite MFT stamp of all time! and stamped her 12 times, coloured her twelve times, and then cut her out twelve times.......

Using some K & Company designer paper, I cut and sewed a small background onto the base of each ATC and then I adhered the little Whee! image to the background.

Then, using the Die-namics Banner Day die, I made a little flag and stamp the word "Whee!" onto the banner. I was able to add a button that had some twine tied through it and popped the flag onto the ATC.

Doesn't this just take you back to swinging in the backyard? My grandson loves to swing and my stomach pretty near flips every time he says "higher Grandma!"!! It just seems so dangerous!!! LOL!  (what an old fogie I am.....)


  1. Bonnie -these are absolutely adorable. I love how you used the banner die and your coloring is fabulous!

  5. Hee hee! These are so cute! Reminds me of the commercial where the little piggy goes Whee all the way home! Tell me you've seen it-so funny!
