CRAFTSTER CARD SWAP
This is the first ever (and hopefully not the last) Crafster Card Swap.  This swap was inspired by the “What do you look like” thread on the Crafster Off-Topic Chit Chat and the awesome Crafster Canada Meetup in July that made me want to find out more about my Crafster friends!  The idea is to make a card all about you, kinda like a baseball card, but even more awesome.  You can reproduce your card or create new ones for each of your partners.  You can craft it from any material, but make sure that it is sturdy and that it will fit into a card sleeve if you are using different materials.  Please use both the front and backsides of your card to tell us all about you!

BASIC CARD REQUIREMENTS

There are some basic requirements that should be on your card:
Size of the card: Should be the standard ATC 2.5" x3.5"
Front side: should include your image (can be done as a photo, drawing, painting, digitally altered, completely up to you!) and your Crafster name
Back side: can include your interests, your real name, address, etc. ..whatever you are comfortable with; you can even write a poem.  Completely open!

Thanks to rockingbearbranch .  I used her wonderful ATC swap as a template.  Grin

This looks like fun!  I will have to ponder whether I could get something done with a 1 month old baby and toddler.  Hmmm.  I will think for a day or two.

In. I think this is a great low pressure swap if you make all the cards the same. I am thinking that's what I'll do but I'll include different art and personal info tidbits for each round in case friends want to collect them all, I know I do!
