Hello! For this swap you will create 1 ATC with a RED theme. Most of the ATC should be various shades of this swap's color.

Sender's choice as far as design so you can get started even before partners are assigned.

You must rate 5 if your partner sends a correctly themed/colored ATC, on time. You may not rate down if you do not like it.

Open to those 4.90 or higher with well filled out profile. Will accept newbies with a well filled out profile. No recent or unexplained 1s or 3s. I will check profiles and ban at my discretion. Leave questions in comments or send me a message.

This series is my first time hosting! Please enjoy and let me know if there is anything I need to fix or do better!!!

I will angel, if necessary after you have contacted your partner and rated them a 1.

ATC – Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5″ x 3.5″. As a general rule, swaps are open to any media, materials or techniques as long as the card fits into a standard trading card sleeve. (you do not need to provide a sleeve)

@radalice518 some sort of cardstock or cardboard usually! I found this useful ---> http://gomakesomething.com/ht/atcs/formula-atcs/

I use Cardstock, cereal or cracker boxes if I’m using wet media so it doesn’t buckle or used greeting cards I get from swap partners. I enjoy the card for a while then chop it up for ATC backs. Usually the back of the front of the card is blank. And the very back is blank except for the manufacturers name, I just work around that.
