Artist Trading Cards


 I made a bunch of Artist Trading Cards this week.
These are really small, the size of a baseball card.

Did you know that I monitor the Artists in Blogland group?

We are having an Artist Trading Card swap, so I needed to make 6 cards.  I ended up making a few more because I didn't like how all of them turned out.  Here are my cards:


Since I made extra little cards, I put a few of them in my Etsy shop.  Yes, I know there is a debate about Artist Trading Cards vs. ACEOs.  ATCs were originally created to be traded only.  Some artist started selling their cards as well and calling them Art Cards Editions and Originals.  The reason being is that perhaps some people wanted to collect the miniature artworks, but did not make their own.  Personally I am not an ATC purist.  If people want to sell or buy miniature artworks, I really have no problem with it.

These came out beautiful Marcia! I especially love the 1920's style ladies. Very cute and who wouldn't like to buy trading cards, it's been done forever with baseball cards.

What a gorgeous collection of ATC's! I love checking out each one, trying to see what kinds of items and objects you layered together to create the finished product! I especially love the ones you have here that contain ribbons/fibers! Adds great texture!
