ATC Ace of Spades
My second ATC playing card for a one on one swap I participate in. This is my rendition of the Ace of Spades. I started with a beautiful black and white damask paper. Added a few strokes of red paint. Cut the spade game piece on my Cricut after I came up with a design I was happy with in Inkscape. I them stamped and embossed it. The silver is gutter tape which as an extremely sticky back. I ran it through my Cuttlebug with a textures Sizzix plate and was very happy with it. The design I chose mimicks the damask paper. I them removed the paper backing and adhered it to my ATC. The buttons I have had for a long time. I never knew exactly what I wuld do with them however I felt they called to me to go on these altered trading cards.
