How to create 8 artist trading cards


I used Aleene's Collage Pauge to glue the music paper to the 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 " Manila Cards.

Trimmed each with my Pinking Shears.

Cut small squares from Tim Holtz's 8x8 Menagerie Paper.

Covered cards with Liquitex Clear Gesso.

Used a couple of different color sprays.

Spray away.

Distressed the edges of the pattern paper.

Used Tim Holtz's Frayed Burlap distress ink.

Used Golden Soft Gel (Matte).

Used Ranger's Glue n' seal on Tim's pattern paper.

All set for the embellishments.

Stamped 'Love' with black StazOn ink.

Used some metal embellishments on the pattern paper.

Used double sided tape to adhere to the ATC.

Almost there.

Glued a metal center to the flowers and adhered both flowers to all the cards. I hope you like them. Thank you, Elaine Rico
