a few of my favorite atcs

In keeping with the artist trading card celebration here at Altered Pages, I'd like to share some of my favorite atc makes.  I like to keep the artist trading cards I mail fairly flat, but sometimes it's fun to go outside that 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inch canvas, as with this Christmas card (the photo captions are links!):
from the Nativity Angels collage page

And there's always the option of keeping the atc flat, but giving it an inside--making it a tiny book or card, like with this Irish Blessings book:
tiny pages from a Vintage Text collection

Irish angel from the Erin go Bragh page

This one is a standard atc sized card when folded, but opens to reveal a pop-up butterfly:
lots of wings to choose from in the collage collection!

And these silly Halloween atc riddle cards open to reveal the ridiculous riddle answer, perfect for a little calorie-free Halloween treat (the kit includes a whole array of crazy, kid friendly-riddles):
