I have hosted several One-for-One Card Swaps over the past two years. What a wonderful way to share your love of cardmaking with someone you don’t know!
We are all exhausted from mailing out our Halloween cards, right? With Thanksgiving and Christmas in our sights (small card-giving holidays compared to Halloween, no?), I thought it would be a good time for us to share our cardmaking hobby with others. That’s why I’m hosting a One-for-One Holiday Card swap. For the next couple of weeks, plan and strategize your most perfect Holiday Card. Focus on December – it can be Christmas, New Year’s, Hanukkah (even though it’s early this year) or just a snow-filled card. Give me your best, and I’ll make sure you get a beauty in return.
Here’s how it will work:
- You mail the following to me:
- a handmade, self-designed card (a standard 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ card). If your card features current Stampin’ Up! products (available in current catalogs or online), then there’s a good chance your card will be featured on my blog. You might even get an entire blog post written about your gorgeous card…
- it’s OK to find inspiration in someone else’s card (that’s why we bloggers put our cards out there), but please do your best to make this card your own.
- a self-addressed, stamped envelope (just fold it in half and include it with your card).
- a little information for me if you want to share: your name, your email address, your level of interest in stamping (are you a light hobbyist, a serious hobbyist or a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator?), and your website address (if you have one). I will share your name and city/state on my blog and with the person who receives your card. The other information WILL NOT be shared with anyone else. I just want to get to know you better.
- You can stamp your name on the back of the card, but please don’t write on the inside of your card so that the recipient can use it (if they choose to) to send to someone else.
- I will gather the cards I receive, mix them up and mail them out so that everyone who sent me a card will receive a card in return. Yipee! As long as I receive a card from you by the deadline, then you will receive another card in return.
- This swap is open to anyone, anywhere. If you are outside the U.S., though, please mail your card to me ASAP. I received several after the deadline last swap, and that made my heart sad.
Because of the popularity of this swap, I must limit you to one card per person. It makes it so much easier to match up and mail out. Thanks for your understanding. Please make sure you include a return envelope for each card you send.
Mail your card and return envelope to:
1758 Colt Drive
Atlanta, GA 30341
Please mail them as soon as you can – but make sure they arrive by Thanksgiving. During my Thanksgiving break, I will gather them, sort them and then mail them out shortly after.
Who’s in? Email me if you have any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
Sneak Peek. I know how important it is for you to see new work each day on my blog, but I feel like this announcement deserves it’s own day – I want to give you time to create your masterpiece and get it to me. That said, here’s a sneak peek at tomorrow’s post (which is a part of The Pals Blog Hop), so it won’t post until 5:30 tomorrow. Any ideas what this is?
