ATCs with a twist - Nutrition facts

Hey everyone,

Today I'm sharing an interactive and snarky artist trading card tutorial with you. They are easy to make, but nevertheless so fun. Let's get started!

Here's a little video of how it looks when you unfold them:


Since I made two ATCs, I cut two bases with a hight of 3 3/8 inch and a width of approximately 4 1/2 inch. I made a seam at 2 3/8 inch but didn't fold it yet. So one part of each card was a little smaller than an ATC. On the other part I stamped the hilarious lady on a scale. I placed her in a way that she almost touches the upper and lower edge. I cut everything that's right from her as well as between her legs and inked the edges with a black marker. 

Next I added some color blending with three different oxide inks to the inside of the card (where nothing is stamped) and a little speckled egg to the front next to the woman. I didn't do any masking here, just tried not to blend over the lady too much.

Then I stamped the nutrition facts to the inside and a fun quote next to the woman: 'I'm allergic to food. I break out in fat."

I colored her in quickly with my ZIG markers and folded the card after everything was dry. To keep the card closed, I wrapped a rose ribbon around the card and tied a bow to it. With double sided tape I added the folded part to some ATC sized pieces of black cardstock. The tape also keeps the ribbon in place.

Do you like interactive cards and ATCs as much as I do?
