Our 1st Card Swap

circle scallop pineconeI would like to do my first card swap for my customers and all those who want to participate.  The idea is that everyone who wishes to participate will make  card fronts (just the front of cards instead of cards that actually open up) to swap with everyone else who participates.  Check the details below and see if you would like to join us:

  • I will allow up to 10 participants in this first swap.  Those wishing to participate should RSVP by Wednesday, October 14.  On October 15 I will email all participants and let them know exactly how many card fronts to make (up to 10 copies of the same card front).
  • You will make the same card front for everyone in 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ size
  • Please use as much Stampin’ Up! product as possible.  I will not require all SU! as I know some of you don’t have a lot to work with.
  • Please use at least two layers of cardstock/DSP and an embellishment is good (like a piece of ribbon or a brad)
  • Please do your best work.  The idea is that everyone will get ideas from each other and be able to use those ideas to make their own cards in the future.
  • We will swap the cards at PMS night on Friday, October 30.  If you are unable to make it to PMS night you can get your cards to me before the 30th and then pick them up after the 30th.
  • I’m going to participate so I’m looking for up to 9 more people.  Will you join us?!
  • I’m sure there are going to be questions. Please ask your questions as a comment and then I can answer them for everyone to see.

I’m sorry the picture of the pinecone isn’t the clearest.  This pinecone is made using the Scallop Circle Punch.  Isn’t it cute?  Some  dazzling diamonds just sets it right off so it looks like there’s been fresh snow.

  1. Well – That is a great idea! I would love to sign up for the card swap. For two reasons: 1. I would love the challenge of coming up with a really nice design. 2. I am so excited about receiving 9 different card fronts from everyone else.

  2. Ooooohh! I want to participate in your card swap if it’s not full already!
    I’m already planning to be at PMS night.

    I was so disappointed that I was too sick to come on Thursday night! 🙁 I’ll have to catch up on the 30th!

  3. Can I join you? I don’t know if I can come to PMS but I could get the fronts to you before then. Also, did you consider making them 4 x 5 1/4 OR 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 so we can layer them onto cardstock to make a full card?

  4. Figured I’d RSVP officially on here – would love to join the fun!
