Green Bay Packers ATC

Good Morning!  We have a new challenge at Catch the Bug this week!  We are challenging you to make an ATC (Artist Trading Card).  If you’ve never made one, there is a fantastic tutorial on SCS.  The biggest detail is that this little ATC is 2.5 x 3.5 inches. 

Now, I have to admit this was not my plan for my ATC.  I had colored up two additional Bugaboo Brats over the holidays when I made my Wisconsin Badgers cards and colored them in Green Bay Packers colors.  I held off on putting them on a card because I was becoming a bit superstitious about posting cards with my team colors.  Wisconsin laid an egg in the Rose Bowl so I didn’t wan to jinx the Packers.    Given that they don’t actually play until next Sunday in the SUPER BOWL, I’m hoping any jinx will have worn off well before then.  If not and something happens and they lose to Pittsburgh, you will likely never see another green & gold football related project on my blog — much to Rae Anne’s glee! (She’s a Cowboys fan! EW!)

I kept this very simple.  Handsome Hunter and Summer Sun work perfectly for Packers.  I embossed the Summer Sun with the Houndstooth folder for a bit of texture.  Each has a strip of hunter grosgrain and a football button.  Very quick and very simple — but you can make your ATC as fancy as you’d like!  I’m always amazed by how much you can get in a 2.5×3.5 inch space!

  1. Oh my goodness these are adorable. I have made a couple of Packer Cards too. I am still not sure what Artist Trading Cards are. Just a trading card like a baseball card and it doesn't open. Is that it?
    I live in Wisconsin near Madison. The Rose Bowl was a sad day.
    I love your blog and will be back. Visit mine if you get a chance.
    Nice to meet you. And


  2. It's not a jinx you should be worried about, but jealousy. . .;) You KNOW that even if the Packers win the Super Bowl, the Cowboys are still American's and God's favorite team!!! 😉 MWAH! PS. Great ATCs!
