Ok, I have FINALLY finished my tute for the magic ATC card.  You can view it here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=383082.0

In the process of doing this tutorial I totally forgot to take and post pictures of the wonderful ATC I received today from Tree27.  I will remedy this tomorrow morning!

Hope you all enjoy the tute!  Its the first I've ever done!
2602  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Magic ATC Tutorial w/ Pictures (LOTS!) on: June 15, 2011 10:04:45 PM
I made what is called a "magic" ATC for my swap partner in the Ongoing ATC Swap - June 2011 and there were a lot of people asking how it was done.  I have a hard time imagining instructions, so this is for those of you like me who need some pictures along with instruction (and because I love pictures!).  I learned how to do this at a card making party a few years back.  Here is the ATC I made for my swap partner:



Oooooo, magic!

And now onto the instructions!

Step 1:  Cut your base card and another piece of paper for your border that will go on top to the normal ATC standards (2.5" x 3.5").  My base card is a old game card.  Yay for recycling!  I like because its nice and thick.


Step 2:  Cut an opening into the piece of paper that you are using for your border.  I have a nifty oval template that I use.


Step 3:  Cut a piece of white paper to stamp your image onto.  It needs to be just short of the length of the card.  


Step 4:  Temporarily align the white paper that you just cut behind the border.  I temporarily taped it to the border to hold it into place while I stamped it.  The tops of each piece of paper should aligned together at the top middle of the card.  Then stamp your image onto the white piece of paper.  Then remove tape and separate the border and the stamped piece.


Step 5:  Stamp the same stamp onto a sheet of acetate paper (also known as overhead sheets) using a permanent ink that is meant for all surfaces.  I use a Stazon ink pad.  They are wonderful!  They don't bleed so you can watercolor or marker over them without worrying about bleeding.  


Step 6:  Line up the two stamped images and tape the bottom layer to the acetate sheet to make cutting easier.  Cut out the acetate sheet to the same size as the other piece.  Then add a small piece of tape at the top middle to keep the two together.


Step 7:  Add color to the image on the white piece of paper.  Just lift up the acetate paper and draw/paint away!  I filled mine in with watercolors.


Step 8:  Now its time to cut a piece of white paper that will go in between the two stamped layers.  This one should be just a little wider than the opening of the border and as tall as the opening of the border but reaches all the way down to the bottom of the card.


Step 9:  Tape the piece of paper that you just cut to the bottom of the base card.  Make sure it is centered at the bottom.


Step 10:  Add double sized tape or glue to the side edges of the border on the back.  Try not to glue too far in otherwise the stamped pieces won't be able to side in and out.  Don't add glue at the top and bottom edges of the border.  I used double stick tape.  Mine has a brown backing that I peel off.  Apply the border to the base card.


Step 11:  Now its time to make some magic!  Take the two stamped layers and starting with the solid white and slide that behind the white paper that is attached to the card under the border.  Next slide in the clear layer under the border on top of the white paper that is attached to the base card.


Step 12:  Cut a triangle into the border so that you can punch a hole into the two stamped layers and add ribbon.


Step 13:  Embellish the border to your hearts delight!  I added real mini star fish because I have a friggin' ton of them and they are cute!  ^_^


Step 14:  ENJOY!


I now challenge you to make a magic ATC card!  ^_^

Ha!  I love that little people toys doing bad things card!  So funny!
2605  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Ongoing ATC Swap - JUNE, 2011 on: June 14, 2011 09:13:23 PM
lol!  So you take a clear acetate sheet (like an overhead sheet) and stamp on your design and then do the same on another plain piece of paper and add color to that bottom layer.  Then you line up the two sheets and cut them out into the size you want and attach them together at the top (I used a piece of tape).  A plain piece of paper goes in between the two designs and is attached to your atc card at the bottom.  You then put a frame over the top of it.  Its kinda hard to grasp without seeing it for me.  I'll have to do a picture tute for this one.  I learned how to do this at a card making party a few years ago.  I will make someone one tomorrow and use that opportunity to make a tute.  It should be up tomorrow night.  ^_^ 

Who wants to do a personal swap for a magic ATC card so I can do a tute?  Just send me a pm!

My husband sat there and studied that magic card for awhile after I made that.  "How did you do that?!"  Silly husband.

BTW your work is so amazingly beautiful.  I absolutely loved the card I got.  <3
