Today I have another project to share from the gathering I went to on Saturday. This is the ATC I created for our ATC swap. If you aren’t familiar with ATC’S, it stands for Artist Trading Card. They are 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.
I decided to make mine a bit 3D this time and since I had fun creating a stair step card recently, I figured out the measurements to make it a miniature ATC size. Here’s what I came up with, using my Ollie and Griselda set once again. The shoes were paper pieced and boy was I tired of cutting out those curly shoes! LOL.
Below is a side view so you can see the folds a little better. I had to make 24 of these for the swap so I wanted to figure out the best measurements to avoid a lot of waste in scraps. I pulled out some 12 x 12 cardstock and cut the base of the cards so that I started with a 3 1/2 x 6 piece of cardstock. Then I scored the 6″ length @ 1 1/2, 3, 4, 5, and 5 1/2. The scored lines are folded mountain and valley style to create the base.
And the last photo shows how the die cut bat was attached with a small strip of clear acetate. I sandwiched the bottom between the cardstock and the punched border.
Tomorrow I have one more project I made with this set…and it is yummy! 😉
