Hmmm... this sounds interesting. I use playing cards as the "stiff cardboard" in my ATC's, so this will be a great challenge.

Is this the only requirement for APC's? To show some of the card (in this case the number ans suit) or is there more to it?

You know how some playing cards are not 2.5 x 3.5? Should these be the size of an ATC?

sundaeschool, you are so right...forgot that part. Now fixed.

Mar1l1ze, Just so one corner shows:) You can google APC and see what I mean. I have 1 in my flicker that I can show you.

This'll be my first time at altering a playing card - I'm excited! One question: do these get labeled like ATC's - that is, with our names and info on the back?

BookSlinger 04/10/2011 #

Yes, or send them in notecard...etc, with the info.
