This evening my daughter and I attended an Artist's Trading Card Workshop at Patchwork Central taught by Peggy Pirro. I've seen the trading cards and have looked through a few books and websites to see the different techniques involved in creating these little works of art. There were tables full of crafty things..sequins, beads, glitter, handmade paper, inks, paint, stamps...endless items to create our "masterpieces." We glued, cut, and inked the little 2.5 x 3.5 cards...and ended up with an assortment to keep and trade.

I just recently learned of this and think their fabulous. I can see having a small container with those on the coffee table for guests to browse through. There are a lot sold on Etsy. I especially like "Hayward Art".

Sounds like a fun evening made all the better by spending it with your daughter creating.

I love the expression on that first card...you did a beautiful job on them all.
