ATC - SweetStamps.com Challenge#134

Hi everybody!

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'd love to see your Creations, so come and join us and have some fun with us

Next week's Challenge #135 is

Anything Goes

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

The theme for that challenge is Masking Technique 


Here is my Recipe!

The Front

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

The Back

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!
