Cute Duck ATC

This duck was found on a paper napkin and just seemed like a perfect small motive to decorate an artist trading card dedicated to spring and Easter. The background combines two different embossing techniques which gives the card an interesting look and feel to it. If you cannot find the same paper napkin, you can also substitute 3-D motifs, wrapping paper motifs, etc...



Easter Duck Artist Trading Card

For this project you will need:

- white cardstock 2.5 x 3.5 inches
- spring green textured cardstock
- Cuttlebug and embossing folder “Stylized Flowers”
- paper punch with leaf motif
- double-sided 3-D foam tape
- 2 spring green eyelets and setting tool double sided adhesive
- hole puncher
- paper napkin or other duck motif like you see below or other duck motif
- Aslan foil

Easter Ducks Paper Napkin 
This is how the paper napkin looked.


1. Cut a piece of white cardstock to the size mentioned above. Cut a green rectangle slightly smaller than the ATC.
2. Punch leaves out of green cardstock and adhere these randomly to the green rectangle.
3. Adhere the green rectangle centered over the ATC. On the top and bottom right sides of the green rectangle, punch a hole and set an eyelet in each hole.
4. Use the Cuttlebug machine and folder and emboss a piece of white cardstock. Cut this piece out to the same height of the green rectangle and about 1/3 the width. Try to catch some of the flower motif if possible. Adhere this piece now to the left side of the green rectangle.
5. Adhere the paper napkin to the Aslan foil and then cut the duck exactly out. Place 3-D foam tape on the backside and then adhere the duck to the artist trading card.
