    Foreign Love Letters Swap (Open Media) ~ Due Feb 28, 2018

    Swap Due Date: Due Wednesday, Feb 28, 2018
    Sign up / Withdraw date: Feb 21, 2018
    Number of cards: 3 for 3
    Number of participants: 20
    Medium: Open Media

    Theme: Foreign Love Letters
    Create three original artist trading cards inspired by foreign love letters that deliver beautiful messages of friendship, love or inspiration. Start by pulling together materials you already have that fit the theme of post mail and/or images hinting at foreign places. Look for collage elements in your art stash to use like text in other languages, foreign stamps, images of foreign places, washi tape, characters etc. that you might like to include in your design. Consider what other supplies you have to enhance the love letter like rub-ons, stencils or stamps of post mail or symbols of love, wax seals, or interactive elements like a mini envelope or mailbox that you might like to create. If you would like to hand-write or use a printed message, consider looking up a phrase online in another language to add to your cards (you might use the translation as the title for your card so the recipient knows what it means). Then pull it all together into a pretty design that enhances the message and completes your foreign love letters.

    I collected some images I found that use some of the art stash elements you might look for like images of post mail, writing, foreign stamps, etc... Idea is to make it feel like a love, friendship or inspirational letter coming from another country so elements of sweetness, post mail and 'something foreign' is what you will want to find for any combination of the three categories. Please click here to see the examples: https://docs.google.com/presentation...N8XOn_HPs/edit

    Now is a great time to use up some of your lovely art stash to create something beautiful & inspiring!

    Details:
    • Send 3 original designed artist trading cards (measuring 2.5” x 3.5”)
    • A 4th “hostie” artist trading card would be greatly appreciated but is not required
    • Add on the back of each card: your real name, username, date, city/state or country, swap name
    • NO: prints, white backgrounds, flimsy cards.
    • Upon receiving your cards, leave an iTrader for me, your host, and Reputation Points via this thread for the artists of the cards you receive.


    Mailing:
    • PM me for my address (if you mailed to me in the past, it is the same)
    • Send each card in individual sleeves
    • USA players: include 1 Forever stamp
    • International players: send $1.15 via paypal to me (with the friends & family option)
    • Include an address label
    • I will provide envelopes


    Our Awesome Players!

    Hey Bluevioletz I like the theme. Do you have any examples? I will lurk until I see what I can dig out of my stash.
    I appreciate your comments!

    Hi JavaZarf, Ann_Stebbing & BluSkyHare, hope you will all join!

    I hope this inspires you, I think it will be really fun to see the designs you come up with with art stuff you have collected along the way!

    I'm on the couch, but I do have the appropriate ephemera to pull this off and it is so fun to put together. I'll let you know when I commit.
    Success! . The 50 states ATC project is complete. I will be laying them out for a photo and will share that along with the names of everyone who participated. A BIG Thanks goes out to everyone. BTW - Ohhappyday and Barbsburnttree have jumped on the 50 states collection bandwagon, so if you enjoy making state cards, hit them up for a trade.
