Seashore Artist Cards

By: Maria Nerius, FaveCrafts.com Resident Craft Expert

Using the paper punches as borders or cut outs within an ATC changes up the creative boundaries. Have some fun and experiment with inspiration from these ATC designs by Maria Nerius.


SeaShore ATC


Materials:

  • Scrap papers
  • Martha Stewart sea life paper punches
  • Distressed Ink in light and dark brown
  • Blue, gold, and goldenrod inkpads
  • Artist sponge
  • Xyron Create A Sticker Tool and tape
  • Fiskars Personal Trimmer
  • Rubber stamps
     

Instructions:

  1. Cut scrap papers into exactly 2.5"x 3.5" or 64 x 89 mm as this is a specific measurement for Artist Trading Cards (ATCs). You can use the Martha Stewart punches as a top or bottom border or as corner designs or simply punch a shape into the card.
     
  2. Punch out shapes of the different sea life shapes from scraps of coordinating papers. Optional: Run these shapes through a Xyron Create A Stick for easy adhering. You can also use liquid or glue sticks to adhere.
     
  3. Stamp, paint, ink, doodle, and have fun with the card. Usually the front is designed and the back has your signature as the artist. Add the punched out shapes too. Your kit included fish, crab, sand dollars, starfish, and seahorses.
     
  4. Have fun trading and swapping this popular craft with others!
