Please note I am in Australia so cards will take at least two weeks to reach me.

You need to make three cards featuring a vintage birdcage, somewhere on the card. The cards may be done in any medium you wish.

No heavy or really bulky embellishments.

Host cards are very appreciated but not necessary.

Be sure to include username, real name and swap on each card.

Please put your cards in individual plastic sleeves.

Shipping info:

When your cards are ready to mail, PM me for my address. ALL CARDS NEED TO BE IN MY HANDS BY THE DUE DATE. If you are international, please allow a couple of weeks for mailing.

International Players: Include an addressed envelope or mailing label. I will cover postage but if you would like to include an international stamp from your country for me to use in other swaps that would be greatly appreciated but is not at all necessary.

Aussie Players: Include a stamped self-addressed envelope.

I will leave iTrader once cards are received, so please return the favour. And don't forget rep points for the persons whose cards you receive!

This is a 3 for 3 swap

Just pm me for my addy when your ready to send.

So who wants to play???

Here is a rubber stamp that I carved for this swap. I might use it on some of my cards. I could not find a rubber stamp bird cage that was the size I wanted. I think I may have found a new addiction! Carving stamps is fun!!!

I am so sorry but could you please take me of the waiting list? I had ordered me a die cut of a vintage birdcage to use for these cards but when I recieved it in the mail it happened to be much larger then I had expected -- so it won't fit on an ATC! I honstly suck at drawing or painting so that won't be an option for me hehe.. :(

momoeight
02-07-2011, 12:19 PM
jpmquil, those are AMAZING cards!!!
