Getting into Artist Trading Cards

As many of you have seen recently I have been working on big sewing projects. I used to make cards for people but the numbers have dropped a lot so didn’t see any point in continuing.
Then I came across Artist Trading Cards (also known as ATC) on Facebook. There are all sorts of groups for it and I found it quite enjoyable being limited to a small size 

Cards I sent out

You are given themes which does help. I would highly recommend joining these groups to mix up your crafting a bit as it also involves paper craft. 

I would say also only say you can do a swap if you have the time to do the making otherwise it’s not fair on your partner.
