Floral Triptych

Hello!  It's been a bit since I last posted, but I've been rather busy.  It's the time of year to make Christmas cards, but I wanted to take a break from that.

I love ATCs.  To me, they are the perfect sized canvas to work with.  And they are much easier to store than regular cards.  I do make regular A2 sized cards on occasion, but I'm addicted to the ATCs.  So, today I am sharing the triptych I made of some flower stamps and punches. Each of the panels is ATC sized (3-1/2 x 2-1/2), but they are folded so that they are in a Z shape, and will sit nicely on my desk.  So the entire panel is 7-1/2" x 3-1/2".

This would be the front. of the panel.  Since it's folded, it's easy to make each panel have a different background without too much masking. The round letters that spell "flower" are stamped, punched out and then layered with crystal lacquer. They are from EK Success.  The flower stamps are from The Angel Company.

And here is the back:

It looks pretty sitting on my desk at work, since you can see the front and back.  And it reminds me that at some point I CAN go home and play.

Making this one has given me an idea to make some for some people I have working relationships with.  I can tailor them to suit their interests, and they will look nice on their desks, too.  ;-)

I hope I have inspired you today.
