Details of swap:
I love having cute cards to send with swap packages, add to gifts, or perhaps just to use at art and frame or stick on my french memo board and admire! This should be a fairly simple swap and I think that 3 weeks is more than enough time to craft. Shipping should also be fairly cheap.

Groups will be made up of 3 people, so you will be sending to 2 partners within your group. Send at least 8 cards to each of 2 partners, that is a total of 16 cards. Cards should be at least 5 x 3.75 inches, (the size of Michael's clearance cards if you want to repurpose their envelopes) but can be bigger. All 8 cards should have an envelope. All cards should fold.


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username

Favorite paper crafting techniques to use:
Favorite paper crafting techniques to receive:

Can you clarify if these are cards that open (normal greeting card style) or just a front and back (like a postcard)...or both?

So, not only do I loooove making cards, but the price of mailing them out as opposed to a giant heavy swap package is also seriously appealing. I have tons and tons of awesome paper left behind by previous tenant. He moved to Thailand so could not take it. Lucky me!!

Oh man! I want to do this so badly! I have to save my last empty spot for the IYP swap and then for one I'm doing in two weeks. *sigh* Next time. Wink

I was making cards earlier today just to try some new ideas. Can't wait to see who my partners will be and what they like.

Woooo, seven swappers already! In like three days. This is going way better than my last round of this  Grin

Just so you all know, it's Fringe Festival (a theatre festival) time. I'll be a bit sporadic with communication, because I need to leave the house at 11am and return to the house at 2am every day. And I don't take a cellphone. But I PROMISE I will hurry to the best of my ability to get people in as soon as they send me a signup.

I was definitely thinking folding cards, greeting cards, (and will edit the first post to make it clearer) but if you do want to make a few postcards as extras, or I dunno, tags or something, talk to your partner about it! More people have said willing to make extras than haven't, so far!

Thank you for clarifying. I thought it was regular folding cards and then I started second guessing myself.

I hope you enjoy your festival!! Sounds like fun Smiley
