Here is the Gallery to Round 2: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452179.0

(BTW - I did ask underthemountain and alteredmommy if it was okay to host the second round - they both said yes!)

This is the second (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 2016. 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!

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!

The Swap FAQs are here! - Everything you need to know about swapping.
The ATC FAQs are here! - Everything you need to know about ATCs.

Very basic swap info:
Swap name: Craftster Trading Card Swap #2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Smmarrt
Sign-up date range: Sunday April 2 - Monday April 17, 2017
Date to send item by: Saturday May 20, 2017
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): NO
Additional Age requirement? NO

*DC #s are not required, but you will have to resend if the ATC is not received*
*Please send all your cards on the same day to make it easier on me. Thanks!*

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a swap moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 16 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 18 years old: YES


GALLERY from ROUND #1:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=449838.0

Please send to Smmarrt with Craftsters Trading Card Swap #2 - signup" as the subject.

*Name of Swap:  Craftsters Trading Card Swap #2
*Craftster username:
*Email address:
*Your real name:
*Mailing address including the country (written as it would appear on the envelope):
*Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? (In the first round, we swapped with all of the participants. This is a requirement for this swap.)
*Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO):

***It was discussed in the New Swap Themes thread that everyone wants to swap with everyone else. This might seem overwhelming if this is your first time swapping trading cards. And yes the postage will add up if this is a group of 20 or more swappers. If requested, I can set up a smaller swap group of 5 or 10.

Do you want to swap with everyone who signs up?
Do you want to swap with 5 people?
Do you want to swap with 10 people?

If you are joining the for the second time, would you be willing to swap in one of the smaller groups to help out novice trading card makers? This means you would make an additional 4 or 9 cards to send out.

*What is the exact size of an ATC?
*Will you post a photo of the card(s) when you receive?
*Are you aware that if an ATC is lost in the mail, you are required to resend?
*Have you read the entire swap information for this swap?
*Will you send sent/receive notifications to the swap organizer?
*Will you send all of your cards out on the same date to help the swap organizer?


Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you sent have been received and you have posted pictures of the cards you received. If you are stuck without a space for a swap and are biting your nails waiting, just let me know and I will release you asap.

If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the co-organizers, Smmarrt and xxx

How exciting! I have been making ATCs with old photos of myself, but I didn't know what to do with them...this will be perfect!

Thank you for sharing this home with me for so many years. Now, lettuce leaf!

Pretty keen to join this round since I missed the last round. Just unsure if I want to swap with a group of 10 or everyone due to postage from Australia

Love cross stitching, PM me for personal swaps Smiley
