So what is an unmade ATC swap? It's something Donna K. cooked up at Christian Paper Artists. A frugal swap costing little in postage but is big on creativity. I sent out 3 envelopes with raw materials and ATC blanks, and in turn I am getting back envelopes of raw materials and ATC blanks. The first envelope I got was from Anna. She sent me a brownish ATC blank, paper flowers, a scrap of cork, a lovely pearl stick pin, a K & Co. "legacy" sticker (a nod to my blog's name), a piece of velvet ribbon, a piece of toile designed paper, a couple pearly flower buttons and a scrap of Shakespearean sonnet. I decided to go with the "more is more" idea and used EVERYTHING except the toile, ribbon and one flower button. I certainly couldn't pass up the pin and cork! My own additions were the rubber stamped image background and a couple tiny buttons to use for flower centers. Ta-DA!
Let me tell you, this is the lumpy-est ATC I have ever made.
