I participated in the Work Your Theme ATC Swap recently and I decided that I needed a Christmas Countdown. I got a lot of lovely ATCs from many talented Craftsterers and I knew I needed a suitably lovely way to display them.



I got an 8x10 picture frame and painted it white. Then I inserted some pretty Christmas wrapping paper. I decided where I wanted the ATCs to be and I used some clear photo corners to hold them. For the bulkier cards Ill use sticky tack on the back. Then I used some glittery foam stickers for the words.

Et voila! I have a display thats pretty and glitzy enough for Christmas, but simple enough that the ATCs are the star attraction (this particular card was made by the lovely and talented jillybeans).

So..anybody wanna make me some number ATCs? Personal swap? Thanks for all the contributions! The countdown looks awesome!

ETA: These are the Christmas ATC's I have received so far!

omg!  That is too cute!  What an awesome idea!  I was curious on what you were going to do these!  I totally just claimed you for another one of these countdown cards in the ongoing swap before I even saw this.  I'm gonna send you a personal message about doing a personal swap as well.  ^_^

Each day is going to be a lovely display for you, your family and your friends!  I definitely want to use your idea next year!

Thanks for posting everything together...it looks so cool that way!

If you have any missing, you can just use a blank card with some of your foam numbers...
