~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.



 Once dry,

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.
