I have been a fan of artist trading cards, also known as, ATC’s for a long time. They are quick projects to make when you are wanting to be creative, but don’t have a lot of time. They are very popular with crafters often being traded amongst one another or sent as a little extra something inside of a card. There are even groups centered around the making and trading of them, too. There are a couple rules that come with ATC’s that you will want to be sure to follow. They are always 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ in size and they are never sold, only traded.
The wonderful thing about the size of ATC’s is that the stamps from Elemental Doodles fit perfectly on them. There is no guessing if your favorite design will fit. It will! I created this ATC using the ED019 Garden of Friends set and the ED016 Mini Garden of Friends set to complete the image. I plan on turning this into a series of ATC’s which is a design based on the same theme, but has different design to each card. This series number is written on the back of the card to represent edition or number of the card to how many were made in the series. For instance, this card would be 1 of 4 or 1/8.
Here is what you will find on the back of an ATC:

Do I have you thinking about making your own ATC’s yet using the stamps from Elemental Doodles? I hope so! The first thing now is to head over to the Elemental Doodles website and pick the stamps you want to use on your sets of ATC’s.
I’m a fan. Are you?
