Good morning crafty friends, Suzanne of Cricut Crafting Grammy. I am so excited that Melin and the Design Team at My Paper Crafting are starting a new post for Thursdays, Totally Tags n' ATC's. Beginning today February 21, Thursdays will be the day to explore different themes, elements, techniques or embellishments. This week we are using ribbon on our tags and ATC's. There is no restriction on what tools are used to create these tags or ATC's. It could be a die cut machine, punches, stamps, etc. The sky is the limit. However if the Design Team uses Digis or SVG's they will be from Paper Crafting World.
As a side note, if you don't know what an ATC card is,
here is an interesting definition from Wikipedia.
Artist trading cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern trading cards baseball cards, or 21⁄2 by 31⁄2 inches (63 mm × 89 mm),[small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.[The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or cloth. The cards are usually traded or exchanged.
I will be coordinating the post for Thursday and can hardly wait to see what all the awesome Design Team members create. I for one have not always been a big tag maker but have recently started exploring tags as a new way to express creativity, try new techniques and use my scraps. I hope you will join us each Thursday here at My Paper Crafting for
