Due August 17, 2021
Signup date - August 3, 2021
Number of Cards - 4:4
Number of participants - Unlimited
Media - open, must be attached to a 2 x 3 playing card and the top left number/suit must be showing
(no bulky embellishments please!)



This will be a 4:4 swap - that is, you will send in a full set of four (♥, ♦, ♣, ♠) 3’s**


For this swap, we will be making Altered Playing Cards with the theme of Flowers, and a Little Something Else. Meaning the main theme of the card should be Flowers, and then you will add something else along with the flowers. Your “something else” can be absolutely anything that you want! Birds, butterflies, insects, people, animals, you get the idea. Anything goes!

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 your location on the back of your cards.
- 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 the swap!

US players: send me a mailing label and a forever stamp.

International players: send me a mailing label and $1

Who would like to play?

Those are really pretty, I like the colors of the files, but then it is even more endearing when you added the teapots. Nice work.

Mailing these today. I fell in love with this Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin postoid on Etsy and then was stumped as what to do with it. And then I thought....hmmm....maybe some flowered playing cards!

I'll be mailing my cards tomorrow.

How do I get my hands on one of those. I do love sunflowers, but all the words with the flowers are so beautiful. I could use CALM and Solace or even some Tranquility. Great cards.
