End of August Free Artist Trading Card Kit

This is the FREE Artist Trading Card kit for the remainder of the month of August. This kit will also be given for orders in September until the "Elementary School" ATC kit is ready. We ordered new release papers for this kit at the Craft and Hobby Show in July. They haven't arrived at the store yet, but as soon as they do, the September "Elementary School" Artist Trading Card kits will be put together, photos uploaded to this store blog, and then placed with the September orders for the remainder of that month. The photo below shows the front and back of the 2 - 3" x 4" pieces of travel cardstock that you will receive in this kit. You will also receive a vellum sticker cut from the travel sticker collection sheet below the kit photo. A vintage postcard image, a strip of FabRips from Studio Calico to match the papers (you can cut into the FabRips piece determining how wide you would like it, and then just hold the sticker strip down and rip, creating a fringed piece of fabric ribbon). Also included is 3 small maps die-cut circles, a strip of brown fiber, and of course, a blank ATC card and sleeve for your ATC after it is created. You will also receive a silver sun charm that is not included in the photo below.

This is the travel sticker collection sheet. You will receive one of these with your kit.

Here is my Artist trading card using the kit. The arrows were cut out of the backside of the camera paper. I will demonstrate the map flower in my next newsletter.

Here is the same ATC, but with a pleated paper flower in the center. I will also demonstrate how to make this one in the newsletter too. So if you are not registered for our newsletter, go sign up for an account at and place a check in the newsletter box.
