How To Make an ATC

Hello!  Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.  Today, I will be showing you how to make an artist trading card.  I made some and will show you them soon.

The History


Step 1#-  Cut a peice of cardstock paper to be 2 1/2 by 3/2 in.

Step 2#-  Pick a super cool design!  You can use any materials you wish!  Some ideas:

• Doodly animals

• Write “I ♥︎…” and then something you love to do.  Then, draw it.

•If you have stamps, get a bunch of different ones and stamp them all over  the card.  Then, put a cool sticker in the middle.

• Write a cool quote on it, them decorate it.

• Are you good at drawing one particular thing?  If so, draw that!

These are just a few ideas, but the possibilities are endless!

Step 3#-  Write your name, date, and title on the back.

Step 4#-  Find someone who makes them, and trade!  Or tell your friends so they can make them.

Remember: NEVER sell your ATC’s!  They are for you and the people who you trade with!

Something Handy: Buy a binder with card pockets to keep your cards and the cards that you trade in.

I hope that you enjoyed learning about artist trading cards!  I will show mine soon.
