Artist Trading Cards (ATC) are miniature works of art originally created by all different types of media artist. Now stampers have jumped into the act! ATCs are similar in size to the baseball trading cards (2 ½” x 3 ½”). They are meant to be traded with other artists or stampers.
You can make 10 ATCs from one sheet of cardstock. Simply follow the cutting template from Mirkwood Designs.
Each card should be stamped as a full design, not part of a larger design. The name and contact information of the artist is added to the back. These are great to use as business cards as well.
Here are a few samples of ATCs using Innovative Stamp Creations’ stamps and Stampin’ Up!’s cardstock and ink:
