Okay this is crazy! Over 500 and about 200 to 300 hours of work. You either have to be dedicated or crazy or a little of both. It was TONS of work but worth it and the family LOVED them. I made extra for grandkids but they will be saved until they are old enough to appreciate them. So I gave a set to each of my children to share with the spouse. I made 16 cards of each family member. I loved how they turned out. This means for the year 2011. I think I have made right around 2,000 ATC cards of some type. Some are Mixed media, some are Art dolls, some are hand drawn and painted and over 500 are about family. This was a very big project done with a lot of love and back aches. Thank goodness for pain relievers.
I made over 500 family ATCs this year for gifts. I made ATC shadow boxes and also put loose ones with data on the back into nice little attractive boxes. The family loved them. Here are two of the shadow boxes that I made. They are ATCs of their children. It was a lot of hard work.
Not sure which version is better. One looks more innocent but she does not look like she has a corset but more like a dress. Tell me which you like better and help me give her a name. Both fold to 3.5 x 2.5 to fit in the trading card plastic container. But you tell me which is better. The more proportioned as far as it looking like a corset is on ebay.
Happy Holidays to everyone. I am waiting to post because I have been so busy making gifts and can not show them until next week. Peace to all of you! Until then....this is An idea to use those antique photos. I love old photos but I am always sad that they rarely have names on them. I pretend to be mother of the world and I dress up my nameless babies with love.
