An ATC (Artist Trading Card) is a small, collectible card that is typically made by artists and traded with other artists.
How to make an ATC card:
Gather your supplies: You will need a piece of cardstock or other stiff paper, scissors, glue, and any other materials you want to use to decorate your card (such as markers, paints, stickers, etc.).
Cut your card to size: ATC cards are traditionally 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (64x89mm), so you will need to cut your card to this size. You can use a ruler and scissors, or a paper trimmer if you have one.
Choose a theme: ATC cards can be themed in any way you like. You can make a card about a particular holiday, place, or subject, or you can simply let your creativity guide you.
Decorate your card: Once you have your theme in mind, start decorating your card. You can use a variety of materials and techniques, such as drawing, painting, collaging, or stamping. The only limit is your imagination!
Add a title or signature: You may want to add a title or signature to your card to give it a personal touch. You can write your name or a short message with a pen or marker.
Protect your card: To protect your finished ATC card, you can slip it into a plastic sleeve or mount it on a piece of foam board. This will help preserve it and keep it in good condition.
Trade your card
: Once you have completed your ATC card, you can trade it with other artists by joining an event. You can also keep your card as a memento or gift it to a friend.
