Happy Three Kings Day (Epiphany) and my first ATC

Hola!

Happy New 2015 and Happy Three Kings Day!  Here in Puerto Rico we celebrate today in the most beautiful way.  Kids will leave grass for the camels the night before and the Three Kings will leave presents under their beds.  Love our traditions!!


By the way, did you know that here in Puerto Rico we have the longest Christmas season in the Planet?  Check out this USA Today report for all the details!  I LOVE my Island!

Wow! 2015 has started super awesome for me and my family.  We have had so much fun this Holiday Season and most importantly, we were able to spend some awesome time as a family.  It has been one of the best Holiday Seasons ever!

I've also been very busy creating in my Scraproom.  In a swap group I participate on Facebook, we were asked to make Three Wise Men (Three Kings) ATCs for the January swap.  It is my first time making ATCs and I loved it!  

ATC card wise men

I think they turned out pretty good for a first timer ATC creator, huh?  

Three Kings cards

I used playing cards for the base, printed a music sheet jpeg from Google and used Tim Holtz distressing in Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves to distress the edges.  

In the back, I glued an ATC artist card that I created using PicMonkey.  Here it is for you if you want to use it for your own ATCs (just right-click and pick Save As...):

ATC

I made 26 of these beauties... yep, 26!!!  It was super easy and fun to do!  You can check out this video or this video on YouTube to learn more about ATCs and how to create them.  

Well, off to do 28 Valentine's Day ATCs!!!

Besitos,
