MOO Cards

I have just ordered some MOO cards using my ATC’s and I thought it would be a great idea for a swap (some of you may have been involved in the swap on the OS). They are such a fun size and I know it will excite all those inchie and twinchie fanatics out there. They are 28mm x70mm or 1 1/8 x 2 3/4 inches and that is the only requirement. This is an OPEN THEME & OPEN MEDIA swap so go for it and create some MOO cards. All I ask is that you send in cards you would be happy to receive in return.

Here is a link to Moo.com
http://www.moo.com/products/minicards.php


The Important Bits

• all mediums are welcome provided you follow the guidelines below

• This is a 3 for 3, 6 for 6, 9 for 9 or 12 for 12 swap
• All cards should be standard 28mm x 70mm and well constructed.
• PLEASE NO HEAVY OR BULKY EMBELLISHMENTS
• Please send work you are proud of and demonstrate your best workmanship! Time, effort and attention to detail will be considered when swapping out the cards.
• Please put your user name on the back of all your cards


Postage & Sending

• Australian players please include a Stamped SAE.
• International players please include an address label and I will provide the envelope and cover your postage - an extra MOO card is welcome but by no means essential. If you would like to include the same postage that it cost to send your cards or a carefully concealed $dollar so that I can use that in my swaps that would be lovely and allow me to have unlimited players. Please write your user name and swap title on your envelope to me.
• Please tape your envies closed so that we don't lose any cards
• Please PM me for my address when you are ready to send your cards
• Late arrivals will be returned to their creators...
• If you need to withdraw at any time, not a problem but please let me know

Most of all HAVE FUN!!!

Oh yes! But can I have the size of these in inches. My brain can not comprehend. sorry

GALZART
11-07-2008, 10:01 AM
Here's what I found: 28mm =1.10236" ..... 70mm =2.755906"

I would assume that MOOS are 1" x 2 3/4".....Please correct me if I'm wrong.:unsure:


CORRECTED! 1 1/8" X 2 3/4"

PaperScraps
11-07-2008, 10:19 AM
I think they are 1 1/8 x 2 3/4.

GALZART

I think they are 1 1/8 x 2 3/4.


Thank you! That's probably more accurate!

IM just finding some cute images to put on my cool and textrued backgrounds ( they are light and are flat)

tafkabecky
11-29-2008, 06:42 PM
Im not sure I understand. I have MOO cards that I ordered from the moocard website, I use them as buisness cards. Do you want me to send you those? Or do you want me to make my own from cardstock and markers? If we are trading actual moo cards (and not hand made ones) then count me in :-) I'd love to trade :-)
Thanks! Becky

GALZART
11-29-2008, 07:56 PM
As I understand it, and from those shown, we're doing out own 'hand made cards'....am I wrong?

jonquil
11-29-2008, 09:16 PM
GALZART you are right - we are trading ones we have made ourselves

tafkabecky

Thank you, xraypinky. Although, they still need some glamming up!:yes:

LavenderLizard

My cards haven't arrived yet? I think I am going to send you my backups, since I made a couple extra. If they don't make it in time for the swap, just keep them for yourself. Feel free to combine envelopes if you get both--I'll still be under the limit.

jonquil
01-21-2009, 05:12 PM
Fingers crossed they arrive today LavenderLIzard

Carolina Soap Chef
01-21-2009, 07:01 PM
Now I have added the Swarovski Crystals to my Moo Cards and finished the edges. With the exception of the Eye card, they are all hand drawn and watercoloured with some glaze pens and Micron details.

Very cool, CarolinaSoapChef! I love them!

LavenderLizard
01-22-2009, 03:16 PM
I mailed my backups today, but I know they won't make it before you swap out. I need to plan to send a month early to Australia in the future, as my luck seems to be bad down under...don't feel obligated to swap out my late ones; I just don't like to take up a space in a swap and not have the host get SOMETHING from me!

jonquil

LavenderLizard

Did the envelope have four or five MOO cards in it? (That way I will know if it is the first or second attempt that made it to you!) I'm glad at least ONE of the envies found its way all right!

jonquil
01-29-2009, 09:09 PM
It was your second envie that made it - i reckon the first one will still turn up and then you can have lots of Moos!!!!
