Have you done an Artistic Trading Card (ATC) before?

Hi My lovely readers and friends who stopped by,

I have my first attempt on an Artistic Trading Card (ATC) and happy that my swap partner had receive it. She had rated me a 5(Good score) and a heart. I’m happy that she likes it. The reason being, I have no idea what to do with this challenge. I wanted to push myself to try different things and in exchange also to see what’s out there for me to try. Well, I guess in life, there are so many opportunities, and we should give it a try right?

I present you my first ATC.

I’ve crochet the edges and also the flowers and leaves and decorated the card.  So ta-dah..

What do you think?

Oh, if you are an expert ATC maker, I would love to hear all the pointers, so I can improve In my next round. I really appreciate it. What I know in my little experience is that we need to keep the card size to the normal playing card size.

And my First Receive ATC, send all the way from USA from Tommi. Such a lovely Rubber Stamp of a Dog.

*Pop Over at Grab a Coffee, see how the bright colours of the hungarian Kalocsai embroidery
*Pop Over at Very Berry Handmade, I love the blackwork and also the pretty little houses hand stitched for the ATC exchange.

Hopefully this post will inspire you to join in the fun too.
Happy crafting always  photo icon_zps3824a20a.gif

  2. Oh no, something else I want to do! I signed up for Post Crossing yesterday and am currently making my own postcards – it’s surprising how relaxing it is to get a way from a stressful project (be it work or knitting). How do you find all this stuff that is so unbelievably tempting?

  3. I got my first ever ATCs in the post yesterday! I am taking part in Very Berry Handmade’s stitched ATC swap which I really enjoyed and I also joined a Romeo and Juliet one on Swap-bot…that one was terrifying because my partner is an artist for her living and I fear that my card won’t meet her expectations! Eek! I love yours though…I would never have thought of adding crochet!
