Artist Trading Cards- ATCs

Artist Trading cards are like little works of art 2 1/2" X 3 1/2". Traditionally they were used by artists as sort of a business card from 1 artist to another. I like creating them because just like Art Journaling and Card Making...the possibilities are endless.

I make mine in series of 3- 1 for me, 1 for my son(an artist) and 1 to give away to another artist.
I also like to sign mine all the same on the back.

I keep mine in a 3 ring binder using clear sleeves designed for collector cards.
They are TONS of fun!


  1. I have mine in a three ring binder. I have two 3 inch binders! I haven't made many lately. If you want to trade a couple sometime, let me know. Yours are great! Love the fishy one especially.

  2. ooh yummy. I have half a dozen folders like that full of ATC's.. and I have a whole folder full of one's I've made - if you ever want to trade that would be awesome. Have been watching DEDE on Ustream and they are all singing your praises. Loving your blog. Pop by and say hello to me too if you get a chance :)

  3. Love them! Great way to store too. Check out ATCsforall website, lots of great swaps
