Artist Trading Cards, or ATC's, are little miniature works of art, but with a personal, artistic twist.
The only common feature about an ATC is the size – they are 64x89mm (2.5" by 3.5" or the size of a regular playing card). These cards can be decorated in a variety of ways and many rubber stampers make and collect these cards.
ATCs are swapped with other crafters and different craft groups have ATC making sessions. These can be a good way for rubber stampers to get to know other stampers and, as these clubs are run online as well as locally, even the most remote rubber stamper can meet other people.
On the front of an ATC an artist creates an original work to showcase their art. It can be a one-off, part of a series, or a limited edition. On the back the artist puts their name, contact details, title of the ATC, number if it's a limited edition, and sometimes the date it was created.
Tip: ATC's are a great way to practice new techniques and experiment with different materials.
