~Binder Card Tutorial~
BTC’s or Binder Trading Cards are related to ATC's and made pretty much the same way. Below are generic instructions on how to create you own BTC's.
1 ¾ x 3 ½ inch foundation
(I use chipboard)
Images, Scrapbook paper, paint, ink, glitter
Liquid pearl paint etc
Ribbon, flowers, rhinestones etc for embellishment
Glue, scissors, ruler, Crop-a-dile or hole punch
Metal rings, or other type of holder for cards
Cut foundation to 1 ¾ x 3 ½ inch size – lots of
options for the foundation. Use chipboard, layers of scrapbook
paper, thin card board etc.
Add a background. Can be scrapbook paper or paint, ink etc. Add layers of images and embellishments to your liking. I like adding brown ink to the images for a vintage look.
you can use Crop-a-dile to make hole in upper
left hand corner for binding.
Normally, binder cards are kept on a metal ring.
But I have used ribbon also.
GET CREATIVE and HAVE FUN!!!
