A number of newbies have expressed interest in Artist Trading Cards, so this is one in a series of monthly artist trading card swaps. These swaps will help you learn to construct an ATC with minimal requirements for artistic ability. One card to one partner.

The only two rules about ATCs are:

  1. They must be 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size. (64mm x 89 mm)
  2. They must never be sold, only traded.

Okay, are you ready for the swap requirements?

Don't be scared. :)

  • Cut your card stock to the correct size (see above). If you want to make the card extra sturdy, glue a second piece of card stock to the back. For this swap, your edges should be cut neatly and evenly.
  • Feature an owl - or more than one! - on your card stock. It can be stamped, cut-out, hand drawn, or any other media except a sticker. There are so many wonderful owl images available to you, and I want you to use your paints/markers/crayons/art media instead of resorting to using a sticker.
  • Add whatever other elements to your card that you like - text, brads, eyelets, papers, inks, etc.
  • Turn your card over and write the name of the swap, your name, and the date on the back.
  • Send it off to your partner on time. This is part of the swap requirements. If you send late, your partner can rate you a 3.

Rate promptly and accurately.
Communicate with me and your partner if there are problems.
