    Full Library Card Swap - Due August 7th

    Swap Due Date August 7th
    Sign up by:July 24th
    Withdrawal deadline: none, but must communicate!
    Number of Cards ~ 3 for 3, or 6 for 6
    Number of Participants – 12*
    HD/HP or mixed media incorporating Card Catalogs

    Full library card swap.

    This is a supplemental swap to the 5th round ATC sized Card Catalog swap.

    I'm running this as a smaller, side swap for anyone that wants to play with the full card. I'm going to limit this swap to 12 players, although if something comes up with a player from the larger swap I will make exceptions and add them in. (In the past, I've had someone use the entire card and they then had to cut the cards down. I'm curious to see what the larger art looks like.)


    These cards are pretty sturdy, and I have a bunch of them. This swap is a chance to make mixed media ATCs with old card catalogs. You can collage, use the card as a base to paint, draw, etc.

    Swap Requirements:
    1. It must be the entire card.
    2. Make sure cards are well-glued and sealed if adding any elements.
    3. Use only light embellishments.

    Optional:
    *You should try to base your art off the cards you get. However, while this is preferred, it is not required.
    *An extra card for the host is welcome, but completely optional.

    By the entire card I simply mean not to cut it down. You can leave blank areas as it makes sense.

    How to get these lovely card catalogs? If you sign up to play, I'll need you to PM me your address. I'll send you 6 cards, you choose the 3 you want to do, or 6 if you so wish.

    These cards are going to be random. Keep in mind I work at an academic library. While I've tried to select visual cards, they can be obscure. 3 example titles from the top of the stack: "Stone Monuments of Southern Mexico," "Spring Days. A Realistic novel," and "Herakles: a play in verse."

    Mailing Information ~
    * Include username, real name, your state/country and the swap name on the back of all cards - and put username and swap name on all envelopes sent.
    * US Participants – Please include postage and a mailing label. This is preferred to a SASE. An extra stamp would also be nice (for initially sending the cards), but the extra stamp is optional.
    * International Participants - Please send a clearly-addressed envelope or mailing label and I will cover postage for the first three. If you don't want/need postage covered, just give me a heads up.

    Late cards past a couple of days or so will be returned.

    If you get the initial catalog cards and decide not to participate, that's fine. Please just keep the cards, no need to return them.

    When you receive your returns, please leave I-Trader for your swap host and rep points for the artists of the cards you receive. People like to know where their little artworks find home.

    Quick key- * means I've mailed out the initial set of cards. If your name is blue, you've let me know that you received the cards you will use to make atcs. If your name is in purple, I've received your finished atcs. And if your name is red, you've received your swap cards. If you need to withdraw I’ll just pull your name.

    Welcome Essy and CraftDee!

    Ferretgirl - not as big as a postcard. More like an index card with a hole punched in it.

    Hi pancake machine! Would one do their artwork on the front of the card where the titles and subjects are, or on the back? Thanks

    Hi Smallgirl - Good question and I hadn't really articulated this. Given that I'm seeing this swap as pretty broad, I think either side is acceptable. Artist's choice.

    Hi pancake machine, sounds good! I am going to lurk for now and see what I can do. I have about 20 library catalogue cards from a school I used to work at, so no need to send me anything!
