Born In The USA

Hello friends!
ATC's, or Artist Trading Cards are such an easy, fun and quick little project!
I created this fun Antique styled patriotic ATC last night.




When we discovered that our local Michael's and Hobby Lobby carried these great packs of ATC's in differing textures and weights, we were excited and inspired!
Below, starting on your left, is Chalkstock ATC'S which have a chalkboard coating. I thought it would be fun to try something different by playing with my chalk. You can find these in the scrapbooking department at Hobby Lobby. The Acrylic ATC's are very thick and make a great base whether you are using paint or paper. You can find them both at Hobby Lobby and Michael's in the art department.
You can also pick up a pack of 25 basic ATC cards for crafting, also in the scrapbooking section at Hobby Lobby.




We hope you will be inspired to try these cards and join in our ATC blog hop on Friday. July 1st.

Wishing you a beautiful day, Lindsey

Well how interesting this is. Not having these store within 250 miles of me I'm going to have to let you girls do this. Someday I may get up there to Michael's and look up some of this stuff that looks so fun.
