Catch The Bug Challenge – Create An ATC (Artist Trading Card)

Well, this was certainly a challenge for me, as I have never made an ATC card.  An ATC card has to be 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches, which is pretty small.  I really liked creating this ATC.  It took no time, I got to use up my scraps, and it’s a nice little keepsake!


The longest part about making this ATC was the coloring!  I colored this gorgeous little Bugaboo Stamp with Copics.  The red card stock was embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder.  The sentiment is from Kraftin’ Kimmie.  So, that’s all it took to make the ATC, pretty awesome!
