Cards: All About ATC with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit from Irit Shalom's Designs is here today and I am going to share with you all about ATC.
As you all most probably know ATC was first  Artistic Trading cards item-baseball card size small artistic project that was traded and kept in the baseball cards plastic pocket. And this was sore for two decades.
Then the crafters around the world felt bored and decided that C can be changed to ... cube.
So Artistic Trading Cubes were born: small 3'' squared cube made  from one single cardstock piece and embellished on 5 sides. It also can be folded and mailed for swapping.
Then about 6 months ago the brain stormed artists decided that C can be also for Coins. And so Artistic Trading Coins were born: 2.5'' circled art pieces that are embellished, stamps, misted, painted and whatever and can be mailed and traded.
So today I am going to share all three ATC kinds that were made with one single BoBunny collection named Sunshine Bliss and all of them are  in this correct ATCs size and ready for swap.

 This is my collection of two coins, two cards and one cube.
Also I used stencils, glitter paste and stamps these are not really Mixed Media art pieces, but more scrapbooking style collaged ones.
And this is the glory of BoBunny products: you can make classic projects with them or to move to Mixed Media art. It just depends on your style and your own skills.
So here are the first " born" of ATC- Trading cards.

Both cards are made in the same way: American Crafts black cardstock base. Then Sunshine Bliss die cut rectangle. Over the rectangle BoBunny stencil with Black glitter paste was used and then Noteworthy die cut pieces and Combo stickers were added to finish the card.
ATC must be pretty flat art piece as you are going to mail it in the flat envelope, so I stopped on this level of layers. Some background stamps were used around the upper layers to add more artistic interest to the card.

The next are Coins: same way of crafting and pretty much same style and look.

 And here are the flat pieces all together:

 And now the last C for the Cube.

The cube should not be glued so you can fold it and to ship it. I glued it as I wanted better photos from a few sides.

So here are some close- ups to some sides and to the embellished top:

 So I hope that you understood all kinds of ATC projects and maybe would try to make some of your own with BoBunny delicious paper collections!
