Artist Trading Cards

If you’ve never made or traded ATC’s, you’re missing out on a lot of fun! This is a bit different from my Cricut classes.

What are those, you ask?

ARTIST TRADING CARDS are miniature works of art created on 2 ½ X 3 ½ inch or 64 X 89 mm card stock.

They are originals, small editions and, most importantly, self-produced. Anybody can produce them.
The idea is that you trade them with other people who produce cards, either at trading sessions or wherever you meet another ATC trader in person.

It is important that you meet other people in person to trade – i.e. it is ok to trade by mail or to participate in editions but the main purpose of this performance is the trading session and the personal meeting.

It’s not about money: participants in trading sessions and editions should not be charged any money: the point of the project is the exchange of cards as well as personal experience.

I use all different things to make my cards, including various supplies, as well as the cardstock.

Every month I do an ATC class with a different theme. This month’s theme was snow. This Friday at Mojo’s we’re doing a swap. The swap is free and you even get 10% off your purchase. So come have some cookies and coffee and tea and let the fun begin!

If you can think it… You can Cri-cut!
