Artist Trading Card Owl Punch Art

At Convention I went loaded down with about 40 swaps-cards I made to trade with other stampers.  I would have liked to make many more swaps, but I was so busy prior to convention, it just wasn't possible!  I was so thrilled to see all the different cards made by the very talented stampers!  Such a treat!

I was participating in a ATC or Artist Trading Card Swap with my upline's group.  Trading Cards are smaller cards that can stand alone, or be taken home and added to a larger card.  It is fun to create the mini cards as you really have to stretch and think what will look good and work on a smaller scale.  ATC cards are 2.5 x3.5.  There are several sites with cutting templates to get 10 card bases out per page of 8.5x11, but this is the page I normally use for reference.

I had so much fun designing this little Owl, but when I made the first, I did not think about how many eyeballs it takes to make 20+ Owls!  Yikes!  Luckily my good friend and downline was willing to help me assemble my little creations.

Two Step Owl Punch
Two Step Bird Punch- wings, branch
Big Shot- Spiderweb Embossing Folder
Great Greetings
1 3/4" Circle Punch
