There are many things that i love about ATCs. They’re small and very diverse depending on the creator. They’re quick and perfect for occasions when there isn’t time to do large pieces but you want to keep your creative juices flowing.

The only guideline is the size. ATCs are 2.5″ by 3.5.” Any material can be used as long as the cards are this standard size. Card stock is a very popular inexpensive material.

I love using playing cards, like I did in this particular piece that I created for a friend. I enjoy using broken pieces of sculptures, game pieces, found objects, etc. and incorporating them into creative expressions.

To make an ATC all you have to do is pick a card from your deck and embellish away. Mix and create what feels righteous to you.
