Artist Trading Cards

I belong to a papercrafting group that swap ATCs - Artist Trading Cards.  We've been swapping ATCs for many years and I enjoy creating this crafty project every second month. It doesn't take a lot of time and I use the opportunity to explore new techniques whenever I can.  For anyone unfamiliar with ATCs, it's a bit like the footy or baseball swap cards. It's a small piece of original work that measures 2.5" x 3.5".  There is no right or wrong way to create an ATC - you just need to keep to the measurements and any criteria provided then the rest is up to your imagination.

This swap's criteria was 'Sparkling Snowflakes' - we needed to include something representing coolness and some sparkle.  Here's what I made:

I did use some retired Stampin' Up! stamps plus included some new items too which are listed below.  The 'Sparkle' title comes from a brand new hostess only stamp set called 'Good Greetings'.  This stamp set can be yours for free starting 28 August with any qualifying order or workshop over $300 (excluding shipping).

Just a reminder that the fantastic deal on the Big Shot machine where you get a free bundled stamp set and matching framelits set too finishes on 31 August.  To see the options and take advantage of this limited time deal click on this link to my online store.  http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=1153&dbwsdemoid=4011749

You can order online 24/7 or feel free to send me a message and I'd be happy to place the order for you and where possible, will help save you postage costs if you do live locally. Don't forget to check the Clearance section of my store too for even more bargains.  
To view or purchase any of these products used on the ATC, please click on the product picture.  If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment or contact me privately - happy to assist anytime.  How to use your Big Shot and other papercrafting classes are available.
 
Thanks for visiting.
