Hi all Debbie Buckland here again…
Did you know that the Chinese new year in 2014 is the Year of the Horse?
I love the Chinese ink paintings - very fascinated with them and i have an old love to original concept of Artist Trading Cards (ATC) - which were paintings now they have evolved into other forms of art like collage and mini scrapbook pages. They are art on a 2.5 x 3.5" pieces of card.
The perfect envelope that these can be posted in is in the #375 Medium Template collection pack:
#354 invitation and thank you card
When I was making my sheets of paper I used the template in the frame so when the paper was made it was instantly that shape - no cutting or measurements needed!
I also cut my ATC card from some thick card I recycled from a cereal box.
The easy fold guide was used with a bone folder to get crisp folds once the paper was dry and I started decorating…
I then use my versa mark pad to ink the
edges of my ATC and envelope with gold and heat emboss.
(sorry can't show you my address )
- Sealing the envelope: all I did was put double sided tape under the flap leaving the sides open.
and this is my ATC that is enclosed:
Title of the art work: Asian Style Horse

So Yea I have tried sticking to the look and feel of Chinese art. Hope I succeeded. ;)
Well thats all from me for now….
Have a fab time making your ATC's and posting them to friends randomly like I do…
All the best
