"1950s Greeting Cards for Kids"
for ATC Craft
(Artists Trading Cards)
and Paper Crafting
Here's one sheet on 80# archival cardstock 8.5" x 11". The page has 9 sweet mini card images from those delightfully painted cards of the late 40s into the 1950s. The only artist I know for sure is the center design done by Charlotte Byj. You cut them apart for your crafting needs.
You can begin with these base images and enhance them with inks, trims, applique's, quotations, etc. to make your own trading cards. They can also be used for collage, scrapbooking, decoupage, gift cards, tuck-ins, favors, and more. Our Canon archival toners hold up to most glues and mediums.
Here's the copy from a wrapper on a bundle of blank pre-cut Strathmore ATC cards I bought:
* What are artist trading cards?
ATCs are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade, collect and sell art at "swap" events, in person, and online. It's a great way to meet other artists and share your work. The only official rule is that ATCs be sized 2.5" x 3.5".
