Default Trading Cards

I might be a little slow today, but what are trading cards? I keep hearing about them but not exactly sure what they are and what you do with them.

I can only share what I've read because I don't make them. These are 2.5 x 3.5 inch cards to showcase techniques or talent. They can be traded or collected like baseball cards. Some demos I know make them to exhibit a certain technique like shaving cream, embossing, baby wipes, etc.

Ah that makes sense. I knew it had to be something like that but wasn't sure. Thanks for the info!

Too funny that this question should come up today -- it just happens to be the "Ask Beate" question in this week's "Weekly Inkling"! If you are a subscriber, check your e-mail!

I'm in an ATC group through my local stamp store and it's so much fun. As mentioned above, they are 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" works of art. They are just to trade and collect. They can be any kind of medium as long as they can fit in the trading card envelopes. It's fun to see everyone's idea on the monthly theme.

Artist Trading Cards are very popular right now - I just mailed off my trades for people in Colorado, Oregon, Indiana, British Columbia, and England today!

They are not limited to using stamps, in fact, most in the on-line forums are not stamped. There is lots of ephemera, drawing, photos, print images. The only real rule is the size... 2.5 " x 3.5".

I sure wish they made an ATC size punch!
