Does anyone else make cards for themselves? I'm making a set of Valentine's Day cards for me. It isn't really an Artist Trading card is it? What do you think? ATC for yourself or small art?


I say it's an ATC for myself.

I've made one for myself and have an idea for another.  Maybe they are just Artist Cards  Smiley

 I made some movie monsters for myself and a Red Riding Hood one. I plan to make a set of mermaids, I have them sketched out but time is elusive. When I get done I feel like I need to send them out though, it's weird.  Tongue

Ooops! I missed some stuff in this thread.... I always handwrite my info (title, name, website, etc) on the back of my card, and I also have small hand-carved stamps I use on the back, too!  I always send in sleeves, (I think I got a thousand of them on ebay once for super cheap... I have many many of them) and I usually recycle the ones I receive (as long as the card hasn't rubbed off on it.  Depending on the media used, sometimes the cards stain the sleeves) and I store all of my cards in binders with card pages.

I've used digital art and some photography before for cards.  Usually, I hand-alter the photography, and if it's digital, I always send the file to the recipient after he/she receives it, and then I delete my copy of the file.  (that way it's still one of a kind.)

As far as ATCs for myself, right now, I'm trying to make an ATC a day for the whole year.  (so far, so good!)  So I guess I'm ending up with some of them, and some of them get sent out.  I usually end up giving away cards that have been sitting around here for a while!

I've made a couple ATCs for myself that are cross country themed and I did some propaganda ones during the big election. I still write my info on the back and consider them trading cards because you could give them away if you wanted.

 Wow, Mountains and Clouds, an ATC a day! That's a lot but I bet it will be so cool to see how much your style has changed over the course of a year!

So I am in need of an angel for January's ATC Swap.  It would be for fancybutch.  You wouldn't get FOC status for doing this, just good ATC karma.  ^_^  PM me if you are interested!  Thanks everyone!  

Never mind!  ^_^

I received the card so no angel needed (unless I'm counting wrong). Smiley

On the other note, I have wanted to keep some cards for myself but my own clutter keeps me in line and I know they're better off being sent away.  In fact I just made a Feb. card that will be hard to part with.

Just a heads up, shipping from the US to Canada is now $1.10.

Am I missing the Feb gallery?
