June-July ATC Swap 'It's Raining Men'


The criteria for this swap is:

              It's Raining Men (hallelujah)

We're heading into the winter and we haven't had a male themed ATC for a while so let's combine these two themes into one ATC.  OK, so now that you can't get the 'It's raining men, hallelujah' song out of your head, feel free to interpret this criteria anyway you like but your ATC must include:
  • Male theme, and
  • Include 'winter' colours such as black, grey or cool blues on your ATC (you don't have to use all these colours and you can use others, just keep to 'cool' colours).


  1. Australian papercrafters are encouraged to participate in this ATC swap.
  2. If you commit to this swap please, out of consideration for all participants meet the set deadlines.
  3. To participate, write a comment to add your name to the list of participants below and I will email you my address details.
  4. Post your ATCs and a stamped self addressed envelope to me on or by the posting deadline (see 7. below). I recommend that you put your ATCs into a plastic bag to protect them from bad weather.
    Deadline dates:
  5. Registration list for this swap opens Friday 22 May and closes Sunday 31 May.
  6. To register to participate, please leave a comment before the closing date. I will then confirm the number of ATCs needed to be made for the current swap.
  7. Swaps must be in the mail to me by no later than Friday 17 July (as mail can take a business week to arrive to me, depending upon where you are located and I should receive them all by Friday 24 July at the latest).
  8. I will post swaps received on Monday 27 July at the latest so you should all receive your ATCs before the end of May.
Participation governance:
  • ATC swap numbers will be limited to ten people per swap. 
  • Founding members have automatic entry into each swap (but still need to confirm their participation for each swap).
  • With the exception of founding members, participants will be eligible to take part on a 'first in' registration basis.
I do hope you will participate - any questions feel free to leave a comment.
What's an ATC?
An ATC is the acronym for Artist Trading Card.
For anyone new to ATCs, it's a small piece of original work that measures 2.5" x 3.5". There is no right or wrong way to create an ATC - you just need to stick to the measurements and the rest is up to your imagination.
