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!
The brief was to make a card using any craft technique and it must be the size of a business card.
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!!!
Both cards are really beautiful:)
What a fun idea! I love them both. It would be lovely to see a whole collection of them together wouldn’t it 🙂 x
thanks! There is a collection of them on flickr at VeryBerry Handmade’s page! https://www.flickr.com/groups/2189392@N20/pool/
Your ATC is beautiful – so small and intricate.
Have a great crafting week,
What lovely cards! Thanks for sharing xx
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
I was thinking the same – that we should do a Handmade Monday folks ATC swap!
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.
I love your ATC, it’s so delicate and intricate. It must be great to get one through the post too.
The cards look lovely. I like how you managed to include so many crafts onto such a small card.
What a brilliant idea and the cards are beautiful, so much detail. X
