Hello to all the creative heads and hands around the world!

It's the third time I host this swap.

ATCs are just wonderful, and I love the challenge of making different. Hope you will join!

You make one ATC (standard rules), using any media except for cardboard / paper. That means no playing cards etc. Also no cardboard backings, please.

For example your ATC can be made of plastic, metal, wood, plants, clay, glass, fabric, wool and other non-paper/non-cardboard materials.

If it isn't possible to write your informations (name, user name, swap name, date) on the back of your card please use an extra cardstock for your information that can go with the card. A small sticker with your information on the back of the card could be possible, too. Please make sure it doesn't harm the look and feel of your special work!

Minimum rating 4,89. No recent unexplained 1s or 3s. Newbies welcome (with a well filled out profile).

This swap is not profile based, so you can start being creative now!

Please make sure to sign in to SB within three days before the latest sign in date, otherwise I will ban you from this swap (I just got flaked by another user who wasn't really active in SB any more - I don't want anybody else to make such experiences). Hopefully I won't need to angel!

I'm afraid there are very strict regulations about the international shipment of plants. Please be sure that you only send plants within your own country or check the regulations ahead of time. For instance, a dry grass product like raffia may be permitted. You wouldn't want customs to seize and destroy your creation!

Thanks for your comment. So far there were no problems reported about plant elements in/on ATC within my swaps. But it's good to think about it. Sending plants to Australia/NewZealand will not be possible.

I had to think this one over a bit before I worked up the courage to sign up ha ha! I've got some ideas bouncing around in my head now though and I'm really exited for the challenge!

Great that you joined :)

Are there any limits to how "thick and chunky" these can be? I have some good ideas, but they mostly involve things that would end up too thick for a regular plastic sleeve...

miahalf: I didn't think about thick and chunky yet...

If it's an ATC and following standard ATC rules it's okay.
