I haven't made any cards since I was little so I have a few questions. What paper is great for card making? Will colored scrapbook paper do? do you just fold it in half?

also, what does ATC stand for.

Card stock works great for making cards. Whether you fold it in half or not is up to you and what size/shape you want your card to be. ATC stands for Artist Trading Card. There is a separate section here for ATC's under the "More Art Less Craft" category where you can learn all about them. In a nutshell though an ATC is a small work of art the same size as a baseball card (2.5 by 3.5 inches) that you would trade for another ATC made by someone else.

Probably the easiest/cheapest way to start out cardmaking is to use plain white card - thick enough that it will stand by itself when folded, then either print onto the card in a colour/design that you like, or cover with scrapbook paper or similar. There are loads of different websites which will allow you to download backing papers etc - try some of the digital scrapbooking sites. Then build up your design onto the base card.
