ATC for the Teacher

This ATC is for the talented Mary Green who put a lot of time and effort into making Your Vintage Gluebook class a huge success.

I lined the sleeve for the ATC with a page from a vintage German novel. The paper for the sleeve is a copy of an endpaper from an old book.

Using a nestability die, I cut a window to spotlight the image on the card.

I then slipped the ATC and its sleeve into a protective plastic sleeve and added an identification band to make sure Mary knows it is for her.

The envelope is perfect, Sarah! Love how it reveals just a portion of the ATC - then you get to see the gorgeous background when you pull it out!
