So I decorated the back of a few playing cards last night and was told the are ATC's. This sounds like a hobby I would be interested in pursuing. A couple of questions:

1. What do you decorate? Is it acceptable to simply decorate a card? Do you need to cut a piece of cardboard of card stock to the appropriate size and decorate that instead? I guess the main question here is what is the undecorated card suposed to be made of?

2. What do people do with these cards? I have read about trading them. Are there contests? Are there websites that will publish them?

There are magazines devoted to ATCs, and they seek people to submit cards to be published. Here's our list:

As you sew, so shall you rip. Don't fear the ripper.
