ATC stands for artist trading cards. They are collectables. ATCs are not meant for sale but for swap/exchange. Swaps are generally one card for one card. The size of ATC is 2.5" x 3.5". It can be made vertical or horizontal. Usually on the back of each ATC the artist writes their name, contact information, title of the ATC and number if it's part of an edition.

ATC can be made from cardstock, chipboard or any kind of materials. As for how to do the ATC, the possibilities are endless. Just to name a few, you can paint them, stamp on them, use ink pads, alchohol ink, utee, embossing, doodle etc etc.

Here are some of my latest ATCs. I've used some of my new stamps (they will be available at Scrappingchix real soon, haven't upload them yet *wink*)for these ATCs...

If you want to swap ATCs for me feel free to email at naja78(at)
