A number of newbies have expressed interest in ATCs, so this is one in a series of monthly artist trading card swaps. These swaps will help you learn to construct an ATC with minimal requirements for artistic ability. One card to one partner.

The only two rules about ATCs are:

  1. They must be 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size. (64mm x 89 mm)
  2. They must never be sold, only traded.

Okay, are you ready for the swap requirements?

Don't be scared. :)

  • Cut your card stock to the correct size (see above). If you want to make the card extra sturdy, glue a second piece of card stock to the back. For this swap, your edges should be cut neatly and evenly.
  • Draw, stamp, collage, paint, zentangle, or use another medium of your choice to create a card with a heart. Stickers may be used as an accent but should not be the ONLY element on the card! If you "sticker slap" your ATC, your partner has permission to rate you a 3 for this swap.
  • Turn your card over and write the name of the swap, your name, and the date on the back.
  • Send it off to your partner on time.

Rate promptly and accurately.
Communicate with me and your partner if there are problems.

Let me again stress that with ATCs, size matters. I've done several of these ATC swaps for newbies, and almost every time, someone sends an ATC that is the wrong size. Please measure your card before you send it.

Just signed up. Looking forward to the swap.

So it needs to be a single heart?

So being new, and I see the partner, question; do we contact them directly to get their address?

@Paperplay , in the yellow box on the upper right side of your screen is a clickable link that says "See the partners you send to." Click on that, and another window will open with your partner's name and address.

@KatShakKreations : The focal point of the card should be a heart, but you can certainly add more. :)
