Black & Tan Artist Trading Cards

We Carry
by Sara Snuggerud in Archives

It has been exciting trading Artist Trading Cards with many of you. Both Cleo and I have been having a blast making and trading this fun 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ works of art! If you do happen to get hooked making these cards, please come in (or send via mail) so we can trade!

black-tan-before-small.jpgMy latest collection is titled “Black & Tan”. This series of embroidered ATC’s stemmed from an embroidery block that went bad! If you look close at the before picture, you can see one of the designs was flipped. I just couldn’t bring myself to do anything with this now orphaned block. It has haunted me for over a year, hanging out in my unfinished project pile. While in the middle of an evening Sewtopia Sewing Club I was teaching, it hit me! Cut up the block into ATC’s! I actually had to stop in the middle of my lecture and write down the idea so I would not forget it!

As you can see it now can be enjoyed by 24 different people! Thanks again for everyone who has traded with me and received one of these cards from the “Black & Tan” series.
