Okay, I never thought that I would ever be asking a question regarding Artist Trading Cards but I am.

I was just wondering how you go about making fabric ATC's. Do you glue them onto cardstock or just leave them as is?

I do not use one consistant method. If I add embroidery stitches I do not like to have to run the needle through a backing so I do not put them on cardstock until the end-and I use cardstock with all the trading info on it.
The two for the quotes challenge were cut larger so the first layer wrapped all the way around giving me a double thickness.
The first two I posted in 100 themes were glued to card stock.
You can use iron on interfacing to stiffen things up. You can also achieve a cool effect by just using medium over fabrics.
I am sure others have other ways. I have only started with fabric recently Wink
