Simon Says - ATC's

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I created ATC sized gift card holders with co-ordinating envelopes. I used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Holiday Things, Mini Weathered Winter, Festive Overlay and Label Frames to decorate and added festive shimmer to the Simon Says Black Cardstock backgrounds and envelopes using Simon Says Citrine and Surf Glitz Glitter Gels from the Handmade Holiday release

I began by trimming Simon Says Black Cardstock to create 2.1/4" x 3.1/4" panels using my "mini but mighty" Tim Holtz/Tonic Studios Mini Trimmer and applied a thin even layer of Simon Says Citrine and Surf Glitz Glitter Gel and oh boy does this product pack a punch when it comes to sparkle.
Once the gel had dried, I inked the snowflake images from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Mini Weathered Winter and Holiday Things and the sentiments from Festive Overlay with Simon Says Embossing Ink, sprinkled with Simon Says White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set.
The sentiments were too large to fit on the panels, so I masked off the sections I didn't want to stamp before inking.
I created the envelopes from Simon Says White Cardstock using the WeRMemory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.
I stamped Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Label Frames in the centre panel of the envelopes inked with Black Soot Distress Archival.
To co-ordinate with the gift cards holders, I applied a light coat of the Glitz Glitter Gel to the envelopes.
I stamped the To and From from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Mini Weathered Winter and the snowflakes from Holiday Things and Mini Weathered Winter on the envelope flaps, inked with Black Soot Distress Archival.
I scored and folded Simon Says White Cardstock to create 2.1/2" x 3.1/2" (the dimensions of an ATC) top folding card blanks and partially die-cut a holder for a gift card using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Stacked Tiles Circle Thinlits.
