Artist trading cards are miniature works of art created on 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" card stock. They have become very popular with artist and crafters throughout the world. If you would like to learn more about them, click here and here. Also if you google "ATC", will find a ton of info about ATCs as well as several galleries displaying samples.
I made these for a swap I am in that requires that we use a House Mouse image and we were to make 6 of them to trade with 6 other swappers. I chose to use Mudpie "Having a Ball" as my image. He is colored with Prismacolor colored pencils then blended with Gamsol. I used crystal Stickles by Ranger on the ornament and Snow Dimensional Paint by DecoArt for the brim and pom pom on Mudpie's Santa hat. I used Spellbinders Nestabilities to cut my scallop circle. Card stock is by Bazzill and the white card stock is embossed with Cuttlebug's Snowflake embossing folder. Double sided satin ribbon by Offray and corner punch by Stampin Up was used to finish off my ATC.
If you have never tried making an artist trading card....you should. I'll warn you though, they can be addicting! Thanks for stopping by.
