an atc greeting card

i love the simplicity of an atc for a greeting card. i painted and stamped this atc while i was demonstrating at a trade show.

the thin strip is painted lutradur...i love painting a sheet with random washes of color, then slicing into strips. this 70 gram weight of lutradur doesn't tear or fray, so you can make beautiful custom ribbon for flat applications (it's a little stiff for tying into a bow). the wide strip is unryu paper with mango leaves embedded inside, and the cardstock is recycled paper with little fiber flecks.

natural, bright, simple. i like it!


  1. Hello dear one! I'm needing two really special sympathy cards for friends who have lost a parent. Do you have anything for me?
    Hugs and looking forward to a reunion with the "Gang."

  2. Love this blog... I am a wanna be
    ATC trader.. maybe someday. In the meantime, I have a gift for you on my blog.


Thanks so much for visiting my blog - I look forward to visiting yours, too!
