Ok, I LOVE ATCs and I LOVE cross stitching. I have seen some beautiful cross stitch inspired art. You don't need to know how to cross stitch or to have a needle in your hand to make something beautiful inspired by this form of needlecraft. Google cross stitching, cross stitch art etc and see where your inspiration takes you to make a cross stitch themed ATC!

Standard ATC rule of 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 applies, on sturdy backing.

Have fun with this. Do your best work. No sticker-slapping. Add in the details that make for a well-crafted ATC ( there are lots of Youtube videos on ATC making). Make something your partner would be proud to add to their collection!

On the back of your ATC put the title of the ATC, your name, date and I usually add my location so people can later reminisce about where all their cards are from. Add a note to your partner with your swap name and the title of the swap so they can promptly rate you.

Senders choice if you would like to add anything extra but take a look at your partners profile to make your swap is extra special. Decorate your envelope in a cross stitch theme as well if you like.

No recent unresolved 1 or 3 ratings...if you have these I will approve on a case by case basis. ATCs require a lot of work and no one likes to be flaked! I will be happy to angel if need be. Newbies welcome with a well filled out profile.

Happy swapping!

I hope you host this again. I have no time to make now (have to make 3 baby afghans by November and 3 afghans for Christmas...so I am crocheting right now)

Have fun everyone!

I’m in agreement with @institches !! Please host again!!! Pretty, pretty please!! Lol. I LOVE this concept for an ATC, but I know for a fact that there’s no way I’d be able to dedicate time to this type of ATC this next 2 months - and i would never want to send my partner something half-a**ed!!

I will 😀

And FYI...it doesn't have to be STITCHED...it can be drawn, painted, mixed media...as long as the concept is there
