VIDEO: Simple Artist Trading Cards (ATCs)
By Shari Carroll

Use fresh colors of Shadow Inks for layered stamping to create quick and easy ATCs.

  1. Cut ATCs from white cardstock to 2.5" x 3.5".
  2. Stamp the Watch Gears (CG421) onto the ATC using Soft Olive Ink (AF222).
  3. Stamp the Heart (D5721) randomly on the ATC using Soft Pool Ink (AF146).
  4. Stamp the Heart onto scrap cardstock, cut out and mount to the ATC using a foam dot.
  5. Stamp the Carbonated Background onto a 7/8" x 2.5" strip of Kraft cardstock (PS627) using Unicorn Ink (AF217).
  6. Use the Uppercase Alphabet Fancy Dies (DI061) to cut out the word LOVE. Use a temporary adhesive to affix them to scrap paper. Rub the letters with Soft Cantalope Ink (AF242).
  7. Glue the letters to the Kraft piece and affix to the ATC.
  8. Add a twine bow and pearls (CH136) to finish.
