Vintage Christmas Postcard Swap

Hello and Happy Early Christmas. Welcome to my Vintage Christmas Postcard swap. A little late I know but due to swap rules I had to wait till now. Anyway, I hope the lateness won't stop you from joining.

OK here we go. You don't need real postcards for this swap, just go to flickr and search "Vintage Christmas Postcards" and all you have to do is print. So when you have the postcards you want you will take at least three and cut out your favorite parts. Example. I may cut a Santa, angel, and snowman out of a postcard and I have three parts to work with. Then on my blank postcard I will arrange them making a collage. The postcards don't have to be "blank" you can use holiday paper and what not as your background. Then after I have my collage I will add whatever extras I want...in moderation. Buttons, ribbon, brads, glitter etc. And wa-la you have a Vintage Christmas Postcard!

You can use any number of postcards as long as you use at least three
Whatever postcard size is OK; 5x4, 6x5, etc
Put your user name and real name on the backs

USA players please send a SASE, make sure you use enough postage
International players please send a SAE and $3.00 postage

OK, I think that is all for now! Feel free to PM with questions. Invite your friends!
Happy Holidays!

PS Please write Chirstmas Postcards and your user name on both envelopes
PSS As December mail may take a little longer that other times of the year make sure, US and international, that you allow enough time for shipping!

I am excited to be participating. It seems as though Christmas will be here before we know it. Of course, since it has been snowing for the last several hours, it seems all too soon. (I live in the MPLS/St Paul MN area.)
