What are inkbox cards? The bigger sister of an ATC! :) I found out about these cards through a swap on Instagram hosted by sandy_creas. And now I'm hooked! I love the size!

The cards are 7,6 x 7,6 cm (3 x 3 inch) with rounded edges. Basically this is the size of the bottom of a big Tim Holz Distress Ink box. Hence the name.

Like for ATCs there are no rules for inkbox cards other than the given size with rounded edges. Every media is allowed: paint, cut, draw, doodle...

Theme is: cactus

For the base use some cardstock or similar. No flimsy paper.

One card to one partner.

Send the inkbox card in a decorated envelope. Put some effort in decorating the envelope. Not just only a sticker or a single stripe of washi

Have fun!

I have never made an ink box card before, do you write a message on the back or your info like you would with an ATC?

Yes, you do :)

Sorry, yes - you put your info on the back.
