June ATC Challenge with HLS: Christmas

This is my last project post for the HLS ACT DT, although I hope I can stay on for the next term!  I love creating ATCs!  This month's theme is Christmas.  And although I am a bit of a Scrooge, I did enjoy creating these Christmas themed ATCs :)

Ok, no surprise  I used another of my pre-created backgrounds with Distress Oxide inks, this time in awesome greens.  I didn't add any stamping or stencils to the background (shocking I know!).  I wanted the color itself to do the talking, and I wanted any red elements to really contrast the green.  So I left the background only with the green color.

I dug through my paper scraps stash and found some Christmas themed paper and cut it into different sized strips to add layers to each card.

Then I added the candy canes and holly stamps as their own layers on top and lastly, I added a fun Christmas sentiment from the same Catherine Pooler Stamp and Die Set as the Candy Cane and Holly.

Lastly I distressed the edges of the ATCs and once again I created 12 from one background.  11 of these ATCs will be available to swap in the Worldwide ATC Swap Group on Facebook.
