Shaped ATCs

Artist trading cards don't have to be 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 rectangles--you can make them any shape you like.  I try to technically keep to the standard dimensions, meaning that somewhere the card is 2 1/2, and somewhere it is 3 1/2.  (The captions are links, by the way.)
Mr. Poe and his Raven
This Poe gothic arch atc is 2 1/2 inches at the base, and 3 1/2 tall.

This bird shaped card is 2 1/2 from the top of his little head to the bottom of his tummy, and 3 1/2 inches long.

Easter collage atc
This egg shaped collage also meets the technical size of an atc, but obviously in egg form!

This last gothic arch topped atc also opens:
an atc sized triptych

The next time you're out to make an artist trading card, consider the possibilities of creating in not-rectanglular shapes.  

Happy Thursday to you!
