Postage Stamp APCs and/or Bird APCs - 4’s - Due December 18, 2019

This will be a 4:4 swap - that is, you will send in a full set of four (♥, ♦, ♣, ♠) Postage Stamp theme and/or Bird theme and get a full set in return.

Postage Stamps - Theme is open as long as there is at least one real postage stamp somewhere on the card.

Birds - Theme is birds, at least one bird must be present somewhere predominantly on the card.

You may join one or both groups, sending a full set of appropriately-themed for each group you join.

Please note:
- Real playing cards must be used.
- APCs must be the standard size of 2.5" x 3.5". Note this is POKER size, not bridge size! (Wrongly sized cards will be returned).
- Cards must have one of each suit (incorrect cards will be returned. It makes swapping very difficult.)
- The top left suit and number must be visible/uncovered.
- Flat embellishments only please.
- Please include username and origin (state and/or country) on a small piece of paper attached the back of all APCs.
- Originals only - no copies or prints. (Cards can be duplicates as long as they're still individually created and we have more than 5 people in your group.

US players: send me a mailing label and a forever stamp, if you're doing both groups you need to send another forever stamp.

International players: send me a mailing label and $1 USD for one group (or $2 for both groups)

which group would you like? or both?

Here are my postage Stamp 4s. I sent them in with the 5s. I really love the colors on this one! The peach paper has a sheen on it and the black corners are kind of a dull but glittery washi tape.

I love the fact that, even though my postage stamps and birds are mailed at the same time and at the same box, they can still arrive at different times. :wacko:

I know! It is crazy how the postal system works sometimes! I expected them today, but they didn’t come. Maybe tomorrow.....

Do you have an idea when you will make the 3's due? I lose all of December with travel so if they will be due in January I will have to mail them before I go at the end of this month.

Probably around Jan. 11 or so. I might make it a little earlier.... I will put the swap up on or about Nov. 30. You can mail them early, that is no problem. I have my Swap bags all set for the future swaps, so I can keep the cards sent early safe.

Swap bags....like a paper bag for each swap?
Some people (like me) like to send them in mass... Thank you!!

I bought a set of drawstring linen ‘bags’ to keep the swap cards organized, since I usually have more than 1 swap going at a time. I keep the bags in a plastic storage tote to keep everything safe. I think that I am a bit obsessive!

I use shoe boxes to keep mine organized. It's always fun to hear how other hosts do things. I think you need to be at least a little bit obsessive to host! 😀

Suzi

I agree, AngelJoy. I have to be organized, or I would go crazy!

oh dear!! I've only ever hosted one swap at a time. Don't know if I dare tell you where I store cards until swap date. It is a very well protected place... I put them in the huge crystal punch bowl in my china cabinet. :wub:

Suzi, do you have any interest in hosting a swap for the 7s and 8s? Just wondering. Otherwise, I suppose we could do those with private trades. Thanks for taking over on this big project!! :wubclub:

Or you could request them in a PAT. Xstitcher's Dec APC PAT group 8 still needs a player.

I thought of that option a little too late, lol. I'm already in two groups. But I'll try to keep it in mind when another PAT comes up. :)

Sorry plumhill2001, I am just seeing this post now. I do intend to host the 7’s and 8’s for those who don’t mind redoing them to complete the entire deck. I will start them after we finish the 2’s.
