• Make sure your cards are made out of sturdy material and are 2.5" x 3.5"

• Please sign up by posting to this thread.

• Include your Username, swap name, your location, and the date on the back of each card.

• Each card should be sent in an individual clear protective sleeve.

• A hostess card is not necessary, but if you decide to send me one, it will be treasured.

• If you need to withdraw, please communicate.

• When you are ready to mail your cards: send me a PM for my address. I haven't moved so if you have my address from previous swaps, it is still the same.

• Please include a large address label or a piece of paper with your address. I will provide the return envelope. International participants: I will cover your return postage.

• DUE DATE: February 12th is the last day I will accept cards. I will swap that night and mail the returns the next day.

• As I receive your cards, I will post received by your name on the thread. I'll give ITraders the swap day.

• When you receive your returns, don't forget to give ITrader points to your host and YouRock to your fellow artists.

I’m a lurkey turkey.
I see that your inspo link includes shaped cards, does that mean we can do shaped cards for this swap?
Must the matryoshka for this swap have a traditional look (headscarf, flowers…) or is it open to artist’s interpretation?

Jezebel,
The shape of the card is up to you as long as it is 2.5 at its widest and 3.5 at its tallest. I will leave the doll to your interpretation. It doesn't even have to be a lady, it could be a dog or a cat dressed as a matryoshka.

I’m having lots of ideas.
I have another question. 3 for 3 (or 6 for 6) means 3 sets of dolls, right?

Correct. 3 cards sent in for 3 cards returns or 6 cards sent in for 6 cards returns

There was a swap similar to this in 2020. I participated and saved patterns. Now I just have to figure out how to nest them.

I had some time today and finished my cards. I hope they inspire a lurker (or two) to get out off the couch...

Great dolls leydab! I have been eager to see some examples.
I see the brad on the red and blue set. Are all your other dolls loose, or are they attached to each other?

Jezebelle,
They are attached to each other.
