Default Do you ATC?? Check it out here!

ATC's (or Artist Trading Cards) are the newest trend in digi scrapping and I was wondering if anyone here dabbles in this new art form??? HERE is an example of one that Jan made to show you what I'm talking about.

I love them though haven't attempted to make one as yet. Have you?? Show us here on this thread if you have (the card, not a link) because I for one would love to see different types of ATC's. Tell us about your card, why you made it, where you got the goodies to make it etc.

A few people have asked me for more information about ATC's so thought I'd post it here. ARTIST TRADING CARDS are miniature works of art created on 2 ½ X 3 ½ inch or 64 X 89 mm card stock. Here are 2 links so you can read all about it!! Hope you enjoy this wonderful, fun and easy artform!! Check my gallery for more examples. I have made a template if anyone wants one. Just send me a PM.

Update: Here is the template download link

Thanks for the links, Jan. I'm going to go read up. Kathy and Jan, your ATCs are both gorgeous. I'm not sure I'm that creative. Heck I know I'm not that creative. lol

Here's mine : There Are Always Flowers using CanDesigns "An Altered State".

I'm not sure that I could really get into this as Artist Trading Cards. But what a great idea for us heritage scrappers to be able to exchange small family photo trading cards with our cousins.

Neat, small and easily traded through the mail so that everyone could increase their genealogy photos.

Thank you for a great idea!!!!

I downloaded the envelope template too for the ATC's. Haven't printed out a a card yet. So that may be another challenge. How best to do?These remind me of the HOLY Cards we got as kids for our first Communion books.I still have some.

Exactly where my mind was going too- to use the cards for other than artist trading.

I agree, I am doing them because they are so fun. I won't be doing any trading - unless someone decides they want one! LOL I have been hoping to get more interest so I could start a gallery so I have done just that. I will add those already listed here to the gallery and hopefully others will join in the fun and add to the gallery.
