Valentine ATC

Hello Stampers,

Here are a couple very simple Artist Trading Cards (ATC). I made them simple so I am able to slip into John's pocket for him to find later and under some of his papers at work. But you can put as much as you want on a ATC. They fit into the baseball sleeves and in the 3 ring binders for baseballs cards to save if you trade them or your own. 

Here are a few I quickly made.

Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are made to be traded around the world.

The standard trading card size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (6.4 cm by 8.9 cm), and is what most people are familiar with from major league baseball cards or trading card games like Pokemon

The layout for your ATC

On the front of an ATC, an artist creates an original work to showcase their art. It can be a one-off, part of a series, or a limited edition. On the back, the artist puts their name, contact details, title of the ATC, number if it's a limited edition, and sometimes the date it was created.

This is a sample of what the back might look like, but you can create the back as you wish.

Artist trading cards can be made in any medium and using any technique, whether it's painting, drawing, or collage. You are really limited only by your imagination and materials.

Hope you give the ATC a try!

untill next time,
