Vintage inspired ATC cards

 ATC – Artisan Trading Cards, I had seen and heard of them for a while, but had not tried them yet.  This past weekend I made my first set of cards and of course I chose to make them in a vintage inspired style.

ATC’s are small (2.5″ x 3.5″) little works of art that you can make with just about any medium, ephemera or embellishments.  You can buy pre-cut and sized cards in a heavy card stock, but I wanted to try and use supplies I already had in stock.  I had some small card board inserts from stationary orders I received, so I cut those down to size.  I pulled out some printables, gelli prints and laces I had in my stash and went to work.
I used DecoArt DecouPage to adhere and seal my papers to the card.
I also painted the back of the cards and sides with acrylic paint to give it a finished look. The trims and embellishments were adhered with tacky glue.
 The lace trims I purchased from Tresors Deluxe on Etsy.  I love their laces!

I love how they came out!  I can’t wait to do my next batch!
Hope you enjoyed them.
Blessings,
