Hope you all had a fantastic weekend with all your love ones! Well I had a very busy weekend helping a dear friend of mine getting ready for a very big Christmas craft show! I just love helping her anything to do with crafts is my live!
Well across at SweetStamps.com there is a new
and it is to make an
ATC, Artist Trading Card.
This is a card that is only 2.5 inch X 3.5 inch.
This little Trading card has been around for over 120 years.
Collecting and trading these cards is a hobby which has been enjoyed by
millions of people throughout the world.
When you make artist trading cards you should always
show certain info on the back and they can include the following:
Name of the artist
Contact information, usually an email address/blog address
Title of the ATC and or the theme of the swap
Date of creation of the card
Edition number within a limited edition or series
Signature of the artist
I hope you enjoyed reading a bit of the History of an Artist Trading Card

We have another Technique Challenge once a month and is ending on the 14 September.

Here is my Recipe!
The size of my ATC is 2.5 X 3.5 inches
I stamped this lovely stamp from SweetStamps.com
from their ArtyFartsy Stamps
on a cream card with Brown Memento
I used a corner punch and punched these photo corners
Glued everything to a dark brown card stock for a layer
Lastly but not least added these lovely pearls
I printed this info cart off the internet
Distressed it with Brown Memento
added it to my back of my ATC
Well I hope you enjoyed this project of mine and hope I could be of some inspiration to you!
