As part of the recent Craftster Meetup in Asheville, NC, most of us made Craftster Trading Cards to share with everyone.  This is my collection!  The beautiful crocheted envelope was made by StudioANFCheesy



This one was mine.  I was in a rush, so I designed them in Photoshop and had them printed double sided at FedEx Office.  



Many of the other ladies went extra-awesome-creative with theirs.  I especially loved calluna's which were each different, and included her baby pictures; and perfectlyBohemian's, which featured mini polaroid pictures she took AT THE LODGE we stayed in, and quickly attached to the cards.

Here are some of mine. I used ATC backgrounds I already had in hand and printed out my favorite picture of myself.

I love that we got to collect these at the meet-up and put them in the little crocheted cases from StudioANF.

Here's my offering:

These were so fun. I wish I had made mine more in advance than on the drive over! But Given the circumstances, I appreciated how mine turned out with my Instax photos.





I had to do mine in two batches and kept losing my tape, so the two batches have different borders, lol.

Here's mine.  I decided to go with a family theme and some fun infographics.  The pic is special because Lana is sporting her Small Things Matter tee, John is wearing the shirt that he uses for our food pickups, and I'm rocking a Difference Makers tee.  Smiley



I was so happy with all the cards I received. My collection is growing!!!  I have been itching to organize another Craftster Card Swap, but I feel like I'n still recovering from the first one.  Thank goodness alteredmommy co-organized it with me.  The tracking was crazy.  I wish there were an easier way...maybe a personal swap is the way to go?  Anyone interested?  PM me!

I'm going to find a way to place mine in the beautiful book that I got in the gift exchange, from calluna.  I want to find a way to put in clear pockets, so both sides of a card can be seen.  Then take the book to future Meetups, to have folks sign or decorate their pages.

Absolutely!  These fit into baseball card holders.  My brother used to collect baseball cards and that was the inspiration for Craftster Trading Cards with our "stats"!  I keep mine in a 3 ring-binder. 
I can't remember the size of calluna's book, but I'm sure you can alter the holders to fit them.  Smiley

I am so enjoying all the creativity that goes into these!!!  I love the way that GeekGirl, craftylittlemonkey, and Rackycoo individualized their cards by altering their backgrounds while hardcore peeps like PerfectlyBohemian and calluna made one-of-a-kind ones.
