Wow, so many cards  Cheesy And they all rock. I adore that embroidered felt (I want that felt!!!) card and the thrash can.

I wish I get mine soon, I have high hopes everytime I come home, but so far none have arrived at my doormat Embarrassed

It might seem strange but we don't have wax paper over here. I have some freezer paper from a swap that I use for stencilling, would that do? It has a waxy layer, so it might be that freezerpaper and wax paper are the same? Huh

I am pretty sure it's the sealer. Before I sealed them, I had them in that plastic for a few days as I was working on them. And I have some unsealed ones who are fine.

Thanks for the offer corduroy cat, but I will look around in a comic book store.

I was ready to send a lot of ATC's out today. I spray sealed them yesterday, let them dry and put them in their plastic covers that are a bit roomy for them and then pressed them overnight in a big book.

I was just writing the envelopes to mail them out today and I discovered that the plastic covers have reacted a bit with the sealant Huh The plastic goes all bubbly on the sprayed atc's. Fortunately, the cards itself are not damaged.

My solution will be to let the cards air a bit today... Probably you will receive them without plastic!

Also had a weird glue bleeding reaction on one card..... grrrrr Angry I need to cut that all out again.

I claim attackofthequacks for an altered playing card

This is my 12th claim, 4 send, 4 received

I like to frame cards and display them in my house. Therefore ATCs with moving parts and really chunky ones are a bit wasted on me.

I live in The Netherlands.

My themes are:

voodoo dolls
the letters E or N
luggage/travel
world maps or globes
anatomy
human ears
trees
gloves
Jugendstill/ art nouveau ladies
Hey ya from Outkast http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrr81SRhp_s
Kula Shaker music and lyrics eg the trippy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwKYldVQ8-4
the number 52
padlocks
fortune tellers
chandeliers

Ironing on a low temperature shouldn't damage you paper. I iron my art journal pages to flatten them after painting. (It is almost the only thing I irin, I hate ironing clothes Grin)

Maybe you can iron the papers (between some tissue paper)? It might help with getting rid of the smell.

I saw a bbq-tool tuned into ATC display here somewhere.

here's another topic about storing/displaying ATC's: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=135148.0

As ong there is no mold, I think you would be fine using it. Especially when you  seal it with mod podge or a spray sealer.

Does anyone varnish their cards? I didn't on my first ones, but I bought a spray sealer today. Just sprayed some and hope they turn out OK.

I could not find those plastic covers for my cards, I found a bit thicker plastic covers that I will use for the maintime. It will keep them safe for send-outs at least.
