View Full Version : Shaker Card Swap-Due March 14

# of Players: 20
Sign Up/Withdraw By: 29th Feb, 2008
Cards Due: 12th March, 2008
# of Cards: 2 for 2 only

Theme: Those of you who also create greeting cards will certainly have heard of the shaker card, but it's not seen so often in the world of ATCs. The cards will have sealed clear panels on them which are filled with a loose, moveable substance. As you can see from the examples below, the clear panel can take up only part of the card, such as in Inspired Junk, or can be the whole card. Some people use the shaker part as a simple background, while other use it as the focus.


Mediums: Anything, providing you follow these rules-
* All cards must be original - please don't create 2 that look exactly the same.
* While the cards will be thicker than normal to allow for the foam padding, please ensure they still fit in a standard sleeve.
* Please make sure you are sending in cards you are proud of. If you have to rush to complete them I would prefer you to pull out.

**Customs Info**
Please remember that these cards are being sent to Australia and we have strict customs rules. This means that you cannot use any of the following as your shaker material: dirt, sand, dried flowers, plant matter of any nature, noodles.
Things that can be used include: glitter, confetti, beads (check they are still small enough to move around), hand made accents (such as the clock in my example).

For Australians- Please include a stamped self-addressed envelope.
For American/ UK/ Canadian participants- Please send loose unused stamps from YOUR country equal to what it takes to get to me. I will be keeping these to send to hosts to cover my own returns in future swaps. I would prefer an address label at least 1.5 inchs high rather than a return envie.
For people from anywhere else- I would prefer an address label at least 1.5 inchs high rather than a return envie, and will cover the return costs myself.
For those who like to send extra gifts I would appreciate an extra card in theme, spare ribbons or blank notepaper.

If you need to drop out for any reason please let me know ASAP. I don't mind, I just like to stay organised. If you have any questions please just PM me.

I hadn't realised how popular the theme was until I received all these PM's asking me if I was still hosting it. :)

Thanks musicgal! I got your PM. :)

Okay, I have messaged all those people who wanted my address. Since the due date is only 2 days away I'd expect eveyone to have their cards in the mail. Please make sure you let me know when they were posted if I haven't marked them as received yet. Thanks!

03-18-2008, 08:26 AM
I've updated the received list and left itraders for everyone that has been received so far.

03-28-2008, 02:35 AM
Okay, I'm sorry to be two days late on sending these out, but I really wanted to wait until those last three sets of cards arrived. I hope everyone understands, what with Easter and the new site and my job problems.

Anyway, all of the returns are now in the mail! You should get them in about a week. Please remember to leave an itrader for me, and post here when they are received. Thanks!

Thank you, LuvLoz! :)

Fun cards received today from Sparklet and Elena.

Thanks for hosting, LuvLoz - hope you received some lovelies for your card collection! :)

Well, I left itrader for our hostess and rep for Elena...but I can't find Sparklet...maybe she didn't join the new site...or does anyone know of her using a new name?

**calling into cyberspace** "Oh, SPARKLET, where ARE you?" :laugh:

04-04-2008, 11:29 PM
Glad to hear these are starting to arrive in their new homes. I couldn't find a new username for Sparklet either.

I returned home from the CK Convention in St Louis to find two absolutely wonderful shaker cards had come home to me! Thank you amyfaerie and lovluz for the loving attention you put into these two fantastic cards. And thank you to lovluz for hosting this creative swap. It was a wonderful idea and I had so much fun participating.
