So you've made an ATC and it's not turned out how you imagined it to.

The glue didn't stick properly, the symetry is all off, it looks plainer than you thought it would, or that last embellishment made it look too over the top. You had planned to write on it in cool curly writing, but instead the ink smudged half way through or your writing isn't as nice as you thought it was! Whatever the case may be, I'm sure I'm not the only one who has made an ATC only to deem it 'bin worthy'.

This swap is for a bit of a laugh really. You'll have three partners and ONE crappy ATC card goes to each.

You must send a little note explaining why it turned out so badly!!!!

So grab that last "Atc Mistake" out of the bin and put it aside to send!!

Questions? Just ask.

Please ensure that you ATC is sent by the due date.


NEWBIES WELCOME ALSO (but make sure your profile is filled out - those with no profile will not be allowed to participate)

too bad it's not postcard sized... my heat gun broke as I was embossing a postcard... so trying to be innovative and finish the thing, I put it in the microwave! ROFL! I'd send that to someone!

Good idea KarenK - you could cut it to ATC size, lol!

This is great!! I've got a few that didn't come out like I thought they would. But, I held on to them for some reason. Glad I did....
