This swap originated with FRY, then followed by LizFinn however, they haven't been on Swap-bot in some time.

You will make TWO (2) ATC's for one (1) partner.

Sign up expecting a quick send. You can start creating your ATCs now if you like.

For these ATCs you will find an image you like, adhere that bad boy to an ATC sized backing (2 1/2 x 3 1/2) and THAT'S IT! No layers, no cut and paste from other sources, no 3-D embellishments. NOTHING BUT THE IMAGE SPANNING THE WHOLE CARD. We are essentially cropping images we find and turning them into an ATC. This should be a fairly simple and straightforward swap. No printouts. Think books, magazines, or other types of items, those kind of things for source material.

Please make sure that this ATC is neat - trim your edges please! I accomplish neat edges by leaving the source image larger than the background I'm using, pasting it down and THEN cutting the image down to size. I have had poorly pasted cards in the past. Please make sure your items are well glued. If you use rubber cement, BOTH sides need rubber cement on it in order to stick properly. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Sender's choice as far as the content goes. Please send in a protective sleeve, label the ATC's. This includes your user name and the swaps' name. Tell us where the image originated! For example, the book or magazine's title. If I have the information, I also enjoy artist and title, but this is not required because it is not always available. Also, include your city and state.

USA only. Established swappers only please, in good standing, 20 or more RATED type three swaps. ALSO, no recent 1's or 3's that aren't resolved.

If you would like info on how to organize your swaps, feel free to PM me and I will send you info that I have that I use to keep my swaps organized and all in one place, and I will forward the info to you.

"Label the ATC". This is my first time doing one of these. So are we to put all the info on the card, on the sleeve, or on something separate? Also, are we to do both sides of the card or just one side?

Nevermind. Just realized I don't have enough type 3 swaps to do this 😟

So next month will there be another part that goes on from this?

There are currently 4 swaps like this. and by label the card I mean to do this: On the back of the card, write:

Title: _____________________

Date:_____________________ Name:____________________

So What to put on all those lines? The Title. That is the Title of the Swap. And the Title of your ATC, if it has one. (You can NAME your ATC, if you so choose) The Date. The date the ATC was FINISHED. The Name. The person who CREATED the ATC. Meaning you. SIGN the ATC. The next line is for your CITY, STATE. Then, next lines are for any other info you would like to include, such as where the ATC was found, if you know it.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to PM me.

The long lines above are supposed to be as long as the line by "Title", not like it is showing here. The computer did this. Also, "Name" is supposed to be below "Date".
