Matchbooks With a Message ATCs

Standard

Artist Trading CardI get ideas from the most unlikely places, this time from a tag that came with a pair of jeans. What a great ATC that would make, I thought. And here it is. Making use of some double-sided cardstock, I created Matchbooks With a Message. These little beauties feature collage images from Artchix Studio, what I call the Salome collection — exotic and alluring. When you open the matchbook, there’s a little saying inside. Great idea for an extra-special gift card. And the best part about using double-sided cardstock is that both sides are equally interesting, so I did one matchbook using each side. Six different papers = 12 ATCs. Cool, huh? Join me for ATC Night, at Stampin’ From the Heart (11720 Washington Place, L.A., 310-391-0466 for directions), on Thursday, June 16, 2011 from 6:30-8 p.m. We start right on time.  Cost is $10 for two ATCs. All materials are supplied by instructor, Jessica Hollowell. Hope to see you there.

What’s an ATC? Check the page on this site for the answer and get busy making your own to trade. Trading is optional. Please make at 10-12 cards to trade, which includes one for me and one for the store’s collection.
