For these ATC's I used coloured strips that I tore from magazine pages as a background (yay for recycling!).

For the first set of three I cut canaries out of a pet shop flyer and added little gold coloured music notes stickers. I first glued the canaries onto printer paper and then cut them out again with a thin white edge, to make them stand out from the background.

For the second set of three I cut fantasy trees out of white paper.

For both sets I made the background a little smaller then the normal size of an ATC and then glued it onto a regular size background, to get the white border.









I hope you like them.
Please feel free to use the same background technique.
Kind regards,
BeaG

The colours are so fun!
Great job!

Oh my goodness, those are amazing!  Did you just glue all of the layers onto the ATC sized card with a glue stick?  I am looking to start my very first ATC soon and I need all the advice I can get!  Smiley  I was totally going to ask if I could "borrow" your background technique, but then I saw your end sentence.  I'm definitely going to try this.  Thank you!

Thanks, Michelle!
I took a piece of sturdy white paper, drew ATC size rectangles on them (leaving some space in between) and glued the strips of magazine paper onto the rectangles, but left them sticking out on all sides.
Then I took my ATC template (I made templates in cardboard, that I reuse), in this case a slightly smaller one, traced it over the coloured strips and cut it out. That way the edges are sharp.
