    Book Page Backgrounds ~ Due Feb. 9

    Swap Due Date: Cards need to be in my hands no later than February 9th
    Signup/withdraw Date: No sign ups or withdraws ...just send in your cards on time if you want to play!
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3 only
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Medium: Any additional mediums are welcome so long as the background is an actual book page (text, not pictures, any language is awesome)

    Book Page Backgrounds


    Since all swaps/hosts have different guidelines and requests, I respectfully ask that you take a moment and read my guidelines for this swap. Thank you!

    I love cards with book page backgrounds. For this swap, make your background from a real book page (text, not pictures, any language is awesome). After that, the only limit is your imagination! Make sure you attach the book page to a sturdy backing card. Paint, collage, draw, ink, sew, whatever you like...just create on top of the book page.

    Please make sure part of the book page is visible as the background.

    I'm going to venture out and try this swap as a no sign up swap. Your name will be added to the list when your cards arrive.

    Cards that arrive on or before February 9th will be swapped out.

    Cards that arrive after February 9th will be returned to the sender, or swapped with other late cards, if any others are available.

    Creative Plan:
    Please submit only your best, most creative work.
    Card size must be ATC standard - 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
    All cards need to be sent in a plastic sleeves or some sort of protection in case your envelope is damaged on the way to me.
    Originals only, no prints of previous work.
    No embellishments at all for this swap. Flat cards only. AMENDED to allow flat embellishments. For anyone doing collage...flat embellishments are ok. What I am trying to avoid are the raised embellishments, gemstone type stick-ons, pointed things that can tear an envelope, heavy or thick pieces. Other flat types are ok. We often see the crowns and stuff like that...those don't seem to pose a problem.
    Feel free to post your cards to the thread, we'd love to see them!
    If you have questions about your cards, please send me a pm or ask in the thread.
    PM me when you are ready for my address.

    Awesome Returns:
    All players: I will provide return envelopes. Please send a label/paper with your name and address clearly printed on it. Do not send those tiny return labels...it makes the postal folks cranky!
    US players: Please send loose postage to cover your returns. An extra stamp is always appreciated to help cover international postage players, but it's not required.
    International players: I'll cover the postage for your returns.

    Gracious Gratitude:
    Please make sure your real name, swap title, and screen name are on the back of your cards so others can leave you rep points.

    Once you receive your return cards, please remember to leave iTrader for me and Rep points for the folks whose cards you were honored to receive. I will leave iTrader for each of you as soon as I receive your cards.

    Thank you so much for participating in my swap!

    I like this too.. Does it have to be from an English word book or can we use other language books?

    Any book is great...in any language. Thanks for asking...I didn't think about that when I wrote the instructions. I'll add it.

    My big thing right now is using text for background.And now I am thankful for the dictionaries and other books from whence I pull much of my text. In India, I bought some paperback, just for the Hindi script.

    Of course! This is a no sign up swap. So once your cards arrive, your name will be added to the list.

    Sounds like fun! Another great idea, mzspurslasso! I'll try to play along, too. I was trying to limit the number of swaps to two a month, but I may have to revise that rule....
