Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern baseball cards, or 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches (63 mm X 89 mm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or cloth. The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold.
I am participating in an ATC Swap with an online craft group I am in. The only criteria in addition to the size was the theme of SUMMER!
Here is my take:
Pop Tones: Cardstock in Whipped Cream
Impress Rubber Stamps: Citrus Half, Citrus Slice Solid
Savvy Stamps: Happy Summer Outline
Divine Twine: Pink Sorbet
American Crafts: ZING! Embossing Powder and Heat Gun
Fresh Ink: Pigment Stamp Pads (Grass and Fuchsia)
I will send mine off to 17 other people and will receive 17 ATCs in return!
