Artist Trading Card

I love ATC's...  It's like a little piece of inspiration, art, creativity, color... a little piece of the person who creates it...

I made some for a SWAP and I can't wait to see the other girls' creations.  So many different styles and techniques!  I learn a lot with ATC's.

Some people use them for journaling in LO's, others for cards, as tags, or just for collection.

For these ones I decided to use three different sizes of patterned paper and cardstock.  One, the base, is 2.5" x 3.5" which is the standard size of an ATC; and the other two in decreasing sizes.

I used a sentiment from Unity, stamped it in white cardstock pieces that were the smaller size and embellished with some washy tape.



Then I used other two sizes and some dollies and cut the quantity I needed.


Used another Stamp from Unity featuring a leaf, and cut.


All layers were distressed and inked in the edges.




And then I assembled as shown.


Applied some glossy accent in the leaf and it looks great!


I'm ready to SWAP!




Have a nice weekend and thank you for stopping by.  I'm linking this ATC to the Friday Friends with Flair from Unity...  Love your comments.  Keep leaving them.
