This is the international version of this swap, hosted by @shabbypink123

Description copied directly from original swap

"Since I see soooo many atc swaps, I figure I must be missing out on building a nice collection. BUT - I'm afraid to join with experienced atc makers for fear of being rated down because "I didn't do it right". SO.. here it is. If you are new to ATC's and want a chance to try your hand at it, here it is!

YOU choose what theme you want to use. Whether it be kawaii, food themed, flowers, whatever you think is beautiful. Make sure your embellishments are securely attached and please make it sturdy.

Of course, experienced atc makers are welcome as well!

With all this being said, please rate a 5 if the swap requirements are met. Swap requirements: make 1 atc and put some effort into it, give it your best shot, give it your all!! Make it with pride! AND send it to your partner on time. Include a note with the title of your atc, your user name, and the name of this swap. That's it.

IF you need some guidance on how to make atc's, or what to use, you can read more here

All welcome EXCEPT those with 1's within the past 6 months, unexplained 3's within the last 6 months, and flakey flakers."

Minimum rating of 4.90 please! Newbies welcome!

what do you put on the back of an atc? different design or just leave blank?

if you click the blue "here" in the swap description then type artist trading card into the search box it will show you a list of articles on how to make one and what they are

@beebeejaybee on the back of the ATC you put infomation about who you are. Generally, your name, the date it was made, a contact detail (email address) and the name of the ATC. You can just write this, make labels, or decorate it prettily, whatever you like!

Thanks for setting up an international version of this! I was considering doing the same myself until I saw your link! :-)

This is my favourite page about what ATCs are and how you can make them:
Art in your pocket

And because I've just learned how to make clickable links I'll try to make one for the page mentioned in the swap description:
How to make an ATC

Hey noobs ! If anyone is interested in private ATC swaps, send me a mail and we can do a private swap so you can get some practise in (and also get some ATCs to get your collection going !)
