Hello! I recently learned about Artist Trading Cards (ATC).
I thought this was a super fun idea and thought I'd try my hand at making some.
Here's the trading cards I came up with.
This was my first one. I think this will be the beginning of a collection =)
I made the pretty butterfly by cutting 3 of the same butterfly, at different sizes with my Cricut Explore. I stamped them with text, inked the edges, glued them together and then tied bakers twine around them.
The cards are 2 & 1/2 inches x 3 &1/2 inches.
For the background on the cards I tore pages out of an old book,
Sprayed the page with this adhesive, put cardstock on the page,
cut them down,
and then distressed the edges.
For the next card I tried to put different colors of ink on a straw and blow it onto the card, but that didn't work for me. Instead I just dropped different colors on the the card and let it dry. Next I sprayed it with goosebumps spray and dried again. Then I did the image with embossing ink and powders. Last I cut out Believe with my Cricut Explore and adhered it.
On the back I put my name, Palmer Alaska, and blog address.
These were a ton of fun to make! You should give them a try!
