Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern baseball cards, or 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches (63 mm X 89 mm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or cloth. The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold. wikipedia

Using clipart and vintage photos I've created a set of fun and
whimsical ancestor cards.
|Nell, Carl and baby Judy Borgreen|
Printed on cardstock and housed in a little
altered box, they are good for nothing
but holding, looking at and enjoying.
This set was a Christmas gift to Mom who
is a paper and rubber stamp artist and makes
ATCs for swap groups all year long.
