Artist Trading Cards 2019

Artist Trading Cards are fun to make and to swap.  There are many organizations that promote art cards.  I looked into this one (Illustrated Art Trading Cards) that requires at least ten pieces be submitted for their "juried site for professional artists and hobbyists"  in order to be a member of the group and to be eligible to swap art cards among members.

The pieces below are all original, and are smaller than 2.5" x 3.5" since they were used on handmade greeting cards. I painted more than 200 such cards over the past six months, so whipping one up has taken less time than will be required for art cards made for a sanctioned swap.

Here is my sample of cards for the jury of IllustratedATCs:
