Displaying my ATC swap cards

Been working on a little project and did not have it ready so I am late for a very important date.
Attendance at Kathe's meme.

I have been linking with 
BlissfullATCswap with Wendy for several years.
ATCs are fun to make and even more fun to swap.
I have learned a lot and have accumulated quite a lot of cards.

A few years ago Wendy held a ATC swap card Box Contest and we all made a box to hold our ATC cards.

Well as you can see mine is pretty full and in the box no one can see the great art, so I decided to come up with a way to display my cards in an artistic manner.
Swapping ideas with my painting teacher I came up with this idea.

    16 x 20 canvas painted black and sealed with clear matte sealer.

 Penny sleeves are available for baseball cards and any card 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 from most craft stores.

 Next I take
 clear penny sleeves with velcro attached to the sleeve and then attached to the canvas.

This enables me to change the ATC cards to be able to display all my cards at one time or another.
I will change them out maybe monthly or as I receive them. We now send and receive 3 ATC cards each month.

This also enables me not to have to put anything on the card itself to detract from the piece.

I then place them in prearranged spots to make an attractive display.

If you would like to know more about the BlissfullATCswap fun please go

It is never too late to join with us.

What a nice way to enjoy and honor the art...each one is a wee canvas of its own. I like your new header and the way that the cardinal is framed by the design of the chair. Don't lose that last header, though...I can still remember it and that's saying a lot as I usually don't.
