Quick little typewriter ATC

I haven’t been making many ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) anymore.  I find their size kind of limiting and I prefer a little bit more room like a #8 shipping tag works better for my style.  But I recently made an easy little ATC for the Tim Holtz Addicts group on Swap-bot that I would like to share…

friendship ATCI used the Tim Holtz dies on the Sizzix for most of this card.  (rounded corner ATC and photo corners, and also the mini movers and shapers typewriter dye.)  I love the little typewriter!  It has a slit where you can insert a paper in there.  I designed a whole sheet of tiny letters that I could print and cut to fit into these typewriters.  Then I used a postage stamp background paper – this one came from the Tim Holtz Distressables CD for patterns and frames.  A memo pin holds a little chit-chat sticker with the word “friendship” which was the theme for this ATC swap.  I used the picket fence distress marker to make the space bar and another part of the typewriter white so they stand out a bit.

So that’s it.  Just thought I’d share a quick glance.
