Simple Stories (Simple Vintage Traveler) ATC's

     ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) aren't just for trading! Drea here with a set I made using the Simple Stories (Simple Vintage Traveler) Collection from Instead of trading them, I'll show you how to scrap with them in an upcoming post. But for now, grab your supplies, and follow along. 


* Glue


* Stapler
* Needle and Embroidery Threads (Optional)


1. Cut cards from the 3 X 4 Elements paper that comes in the Simple Stories (Simple Vintage Traveler) Collector's Essential Kit, and smoosh Distress Inks along the edges. I used two colors per card, except for two, where I only used one (Ground Espresso) for the darker cards. But any combination of colors listed in the supplies will work. 

2. From the 6 X 8 Pad, cut papers at 3 1/2" X 4 1/2". Match a Distress Ink color, to also smoosh along the edges.

3. Adhere cards from step 1 to the cards in step 2.

4. Use scrap papers from the 6 X 8 Pad to matte the Sticker word tabs, ink edges with Distress Inks, and adhere to the top center of the 2 X 3 cards.

5. Add a couple of strips of Washi Tape to each card.

6. Use stapler a few times on the Washi Tape strips.

7. Attach circle Stickers to the bottom centers of the tabs.

8. Hand-stitch around circles, and add a couple of rows of zigzag stitching to cards. You could also doodle or stamp your stitching if you're not comfortable with sewing. 

9. Add a couple of word Stickers to the cards. 

10. Finish them up with a piece of Chipboard.

     Remember to come back later to see how I use these cards on a double page layout, with the Simple Stories (Simple Vintage Traveler) Collection from!
