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 a vintage/retro telephone on your card stock. It can be stamped, cut-out, hand drawn, or even a sticker. If you use a sticker, be sure to have other artistic elements on your card. A piece of cardstock with a lone sticker on it is considered "sticker slapped," and can earn you a 3 rating.
  • Add whatever other elements to your card that you like - text, brads, eyelets, papers, inks, etc.
  • For this swap, "vintage/retro" means anything more than 25 years old. An early model iPhone is not vintage or retro. :)
  • 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.

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