I am new to Atc's and I know there must be other's too. So I thought it would be fun to make a swap for new to ATC people veteran makers can join too, lets just all have fun and get the creative juices flowing.

  1. If you need idea's you can check out flickr, or google ATCs for inspiration.

  2. You need sturdy cardstock or cardboard, I find myself using soda box and cereal stuff to be earth friendly. You can also use ballcards they are the correct size and it is easy to alter them. If you feel more comfortable buying something specific Craft Stores do sell blanks.

  3. Theme is open! Use any medium at all you like and just have fun. Spend some time with it and just enjoy the fun.

  4. Make sure you fill out the back, Username Swap date and title. Google also has good ATC Back info.

You can ask me anything you like here or via email. I am new to these too but learning fast and enjoying.

You will have One ATC to send to ONE partner so there is no pressure and you can make sure to take your time.

If your new make sure that your profile is filled out and has some info. The ATC will be senders choice but reading your partners profile is always thoughtful.

What is ATC?? I'm to new to understand!!

Hi, Hartline22....I'm new too but ATC is "Artist's Trading Card". There are specific measurements (the size of a baseball card). Hope that helps...for now, that's about all I know!

I know that ATC's have size limitations, but does it HAVE to be a card? I make these cute little bags that are about the size of a trading card. Would that work?

If you don't follow the rules "exactly", do you get a bad score? :(

as long as you are in the size range and it would fit into a card holder I think you would be fine. I know a lot of ATC collectors put them in holders and save them ect.
