If your like me and like cards that you can play with then this swap is for you! The rules are simple...you can do anything but all cards must move in some point! There's plenty of videos on YouTube for pop cards and _cards that move and all the such. If you would like depending on what you do you could add little suprises to make them even more interesting ;) However, its all up to you!


* This is a 3 for 3 card trade and is an open media

Please make sure you add some depth to your cards, whatever you do as I do understand that not everyone is a professional artist here but I do ask is that you make your best work for I will do effert for effert.

*Please sign up by posting to this thread.
* ONLY ATCs allowed.
* PLEASE, Make sure our this! All cards need to be standard ATC size: 2.5” x 3.5”
* All cards need to be sent each in their own plastic sleeve. This is for their protection!
* All cards need to be sturdy enough to earn the name “card” (no floppy or flimsy paper).
* Please put the Swap name and your Username on the back of all cards. And please write clearly on everything!


Please! Read Carefully!: Mailing


* Please send me an long 4 by 9 1/2 business sized envelope with you name and address written clearly on it

* If you are inside the U.S., please include at least enough stamps to get your cards to me with the above. DO NOT PLACE the stamps on the envelope!

*International Players: Please send $2.00 USD or global "Forever" stamps. Do Not place the stamps on the envelopes!

*However, keep in mind these things may be bulky, so extra postage may be an requirement!!!!

* I apologize for being demanding on the stamps...I had so many weird things happen with stamps!

* Cards are due to me by Aug 10th since we all know that snail mail is slow I will give you an extra week for you cards to reach here as long I was notified about it earlier.

* A hostie card in this theme is appreciated but not at all expected!

Do the cards have to be only 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches or can they be that size folded? So if you made a pop up card, it might be ATC size when closed but actually larger when opened?

Yeah you can do it like that...I've made a card that when you opened it palm trees would pop up, but I kept the size 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 so when it closed it still fits in the sleeve.

Hi Wolf_Moon, just a question re: size. Do you want the cards to be rectangular shaped or can they be shaped a bit while still maintaining the 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 dimensions at certain points? Such as a house shaped card with pointed roof.
Thanks!

My cards should go out in the next few days -- whenever I make it to the post office!
Here they are. They are mostly collage with ink, stamping, acrylic paints and die cuts. I could only scan them flat, so surprises within! I hope they are okay. This was a really fun swap as I got to us techniques I've learned in my local group (who has not met for months :(

Cleopatra, is that Steampunk? Inspirational. I love Steampunk so maybe I should try this swap!!
Wolf-moon, I'll lurk if that's ok. I have to dig out my cogs and gears. lol

Cleopatra
07-11-2020, 07:47 PM

Hi
I've been thinking of participating, I firstly have a question. One of the things I was thinking of sending is a paper doll with ATC sized paper backgrounds. If I mount the backgrounds to cardboard it would be very bulky. The outfits are thick paper. Would this be ok or would you prefer something without components?

Also wondering if it is too late to join? I am in Australia, and could post this week.

Thanks

The scans have a lot of space around them - sorry for that. If you receive a card, you have to 'go for a nature hike' and find your insect hidden among the leaves.

Wolf_Moon
07-18-2020, 09:32 PM

Cleopatra and Miss Rich your cards came :3
