For October this year our Facebook Group has  a double theme . The first is the shape. They must be the 'new' ATC Coin. This is a circular ATC with a 2 . 5" diameter. The second suggested theme is Autumn but we could  actually choose what ever we want and I have chosen 'Halloween'.
I must admit I didn't find all this as easy as I thought as everything in my ATC world is set up for the standard 'playing card' size and shape.  But after all  challenge is a challenge!

Here are my five 'coins'.  Not presented as neatly and tidily as I would like as I put them on little stands to photograph them.  If you do this with a group of standard shaped ATCs it is easy to crop before presentation but my graphic manipulation skills are very limited - in fact non-existant so my apologies for the odd looking photo.

In fact - all moaning aside - I did enjoy making them.  I bought some new dies especially for the project and who doesn't like buying new dies?

The words - Spooky and Boo were by Tonic.  The tiny wee ghosts, cats, web, spider and bat are from a Marianne Design Craftables Cutting Punch Die - 'Halloween'.  The little Punch Dies from Marianne Designs are wonderful. I now have 18 sets and use them all the time.

I don't think that 'coins' are going to be 'my thing' but as an experiment I enjoyed it in the end.



  1. I love your beautiful ATC coins Carol.

  2. Well done on something different, I had never seen round ATCs so that’s a first and a challenge is a challenge which can work out to be a headache, but you did well, they are all different and very Halloween
