My embroderied Artist Trading cards

 I want to show you some of my ATC cards, made for trading projects on a Facebook group I´m following. Each swap has it´s own theme.

Hi Paul!
Thanks for commenting!

How to create an artist trading card in my way.

Start with a fabric and sketch your motif on the fabric. Make sure the textile is bigger than the finished card, I usually leave about an inch of extra space.

Decorate your fabric with stitches and colors. When you feel finished, glue a cardboard back (I use cereal boxes, they have the right thickness). The measurement is 2.5 x 3.5 inches (63 × 89 mm).
Glue the edges down on the back and finally, put a name tag on the back with your information. They are easily found for free on the internet.
