I'm going to continue this swap until there is a lack of interest. If you missed out on the previous one here is your chance to join in.

Have you wanted to try making ATC's but were afraid you weren't good enough? Not sure how to make an ATC? If so this swap is for you. This swap is for people new to making artist trading cards who want to do so in a non-judgmental swap. If you are an ATC "pro" who wouldn't be happy with a beginner card this swap is not for you.

For this swap you will make one ATC card for two partners (you will get two ratings.) Standard ATC rules apply; card must be 2.5" X 3.5" (6.35 cm x 8.9cm) on sturdy background. Put the name of the card, date made, your name, on back of card.

Card may be hand drawn, painted, stenciled, collaged, zentangled, embellished, use die cuts, done in fabric, etc. Senders choice. However you choose, except for "sticker slapping." Stickers may be used if they are done well, don't just stick one on a piece of card-stock and call it done.

Newbies with a well filled out profile allowed (see note below). No unresolved, unexplained ones or threes in last 6 months. I check all profiles prior to assigning partners and I will ban questionable swappers.

Making this international as postage shouldn't be much for a flat envelope.

There are lots of YouTube videos and Pinterest ideas for making ATC's if you need instruction/inspiration.

NEWBIES: Please fill out your profiles. This helps other swappers know your likes & dislikes. And you will see this is a common requirement of many swaps here on swap-bot. Although this is senders choice many swappers look at your profile to try and make something they know you would love. You wouldn't want to receive a card done in shades of orange if you hate orange! To get an idea of things to include check out other swapper's profiles. To do that; once you join this swap click the link in the box at the top right that says "view participants." Click on any name and it will take you to their profile. Any questions you can ask me in the comments below or message me.

@piratecaptainmo thanks for the heads up. She has been removed from the swap.

I'm sorry if this is a really stupid question, but what does one atc for two partners mean? Does that mean making two but them being the same? Apologies again if this is obvious and I'm just being silly!

HisChild 07/22/2018 #

@Basicallyhades sorry if my wording wasn't clear. It just means that you will have two partners and send each of them one ATC. You can make them alike or different, totally up to you. If made the same you should label them on the back saying 1/2 and 2/2

Hey y'all! I didn't realize I had successfully signed up for a swap until I got the sending reminder. Mine are in the mail, I send my partners an email right away, but haven't heard from them.
