I'm excited to be trading my 1st ATC ever. But ... I think I made mine wrong. I decorated it with my initial on it sence I am the artist who made it and it's for a collection right? Here's a picture of the ones I made. Is this all wrong? LOL
Any advice is greatly appreciated.

There's really no "wrong" way to make an ATC. You just decorate it however you like!

Forgive me for a dumb question, but what is an ATC?

They are called an Artist Trading Card. It wasn't a dumb question. The only rule is the size. They are 2 1/2 x 3 1/2. Lots of fun! I have some in my gallery, too!

Off to take a peek at ya'lls!

I had read that somewhere before but just couldn't remember. Are they like greeting cards, or like baseball cards?

I think they are great! There isn't any rule about what should be on them and the K's look fabulous!

I have always wanted to try them, but really dont know who too send them too. Not many friends I know scrap so there is no telling what they will do with them. Is there anything here at SBC that does these?

Oh good! You know when you just don't know? Thanks for the advice and comments.

As far as a place here to trade them I just saw in someone's siggy that they were doing a summer ATC swap. So I am guessing the swap forum? Off to check now.

I do them for a Scripture Challenge I am hosting this year. You can see one of my cards (front and back) here. They are super fun to make, and I almost always use up scraps!

They fit in baseball card sleeves, which make a good holder for them

I like the k's.... seeing as it's my first initial... I'm Kimberly. They're great, ATC cards are your art, and an expression of your heart. Be proud!

Thanks for the info. Now sorry for all the questions, but do you all buy deck of cards and alter them or do you cut CS and go from there?

I buy the 7Gypsies cards and cover them. Then I put them on the card holder.
