ATC Swap!

I have always wanted to be part of an ATC Swap (Artist Trading Card) but have never seen one at a time when I could realistically join in. So I was very pleased when recently I was able to  join the ATC swap organised by Ali (another one!) at VeryberryHandmade  The theme was ‘Spring’ or ‘Books’.  Can you guess what I chose?  🙂

Here is mine!

ATC for the Verry berry handmade spring swap

My ATC I sent to my swap person!


The brief was to make a card using any craft technique and it must be the size of a business card.


ATC must show artist's name and contact email

The information which goes on the back

I had a lot of fun making mine and incorporated sewing, needle felting and embroidery into it.  You post your card out to a different person from whom you receive one and it’s a secret swap until the day it arrives!

This is what I received – a lovely countryside scene.

Well  I am off to link with Handmade Monday now – not so easy as I am in the car on the way back from Blackpool where I visited an amazing fabric shop called Grace and Favour – more about that next time!


comment box is working even though the name box looks like it isn’t recording your text – it is!!!

  1. What a lovely idea. Us handmade Monday folks should do something like that. They’re both sweet and to get so much detail into something that’s as small as a business card is amazing xx

  2. Your card looks wonderful and I can’t believe how tiny they are. I can’t wait to hear about the fabric shop, a vitual visit will be very cheap 🙂 I love what you’ve done with the Hillary’s fabric, fantastic idea.

  3. I love your ATC, it’s so delicate and intricate. It must be great to get one through the post too.
