In celebration of Penguin Awareness Day (Jan-20), lets make 2 ATC cards each for one partner. The cards should not be exactly the same, but they can coordinate, Each card should have penguins or a penguin, the bird not the comic book villain.

Put your cards is something to protect them: plastic sleeve or another small envelope. Consider taping it down to the notecard to prevent it from dancing around during mailing. Tape carefully.

All cards need a sturdy backing, How sturdy is sturd? 1. they should not flap in the wind if you were to wave it 2. if you can FOLD, (and gasp! the horror!) your card from top to bottom and not cause a crease in the card your backing is way too thin. Please keep in mind we would not bend of fold our atcs, but it is bendable it is not acceptable.

The backs of our cards needs some contact info and somewhere on the envelope or with the note you need to let your partner know the swap name and your swapbot name.

Please do your best work. Make cards you love so much you want to keep it, or make a duplicate for yourself. It should be that great.

Hand drawn and zentangles are welcomed and do not require extra techniques. If you are using Digital or photo or printed images, you will need to mix it up a bit more. Mixed media of course is already mixed. Ideas: add texture, ink, rubber stamped images, embossing, die cuts, punches, borders, fibers, ribbons, rickrack, bakers twin, add a gem or a brad.

Your cards are senders choice. You may start the cards right away.

I do angel my swaps. I also will screen out those with recent 1s or 3s.
