    Bird House-Shaped ATCs ~ Due May 11th

    Swap Due Date - May 11, 2012

    Signup/withdraw date - open; please be sure to notify me ASAP if you need to withdraw so we can open up any spots for people who might be on a waiting list. Lack of communication will result in neutral i-trader.

    Number of Cards - 3 for 3
    Number of participants: 20
    Medium: collage/stamping/mixed media, etc.

    SWAP DIRECTIONS:

    For this swap you will send in 3 collage/stamping or mixed media-type ATCs (some hand-drawn elemets are ok, too); each one should be in the shape of a bird house. Create your own template/shape, but your ATC should be 3 1/2 inches tall, at the highest point of the roof, and 2 1/2 inches wide at the widest point of the roof, like normal ATC size. Obviously, the body of the bird house may be narrower. You will receive three ATCs in return. Have fun and be creative!

    Here's a couple links to look at for ideas--sorry I don't have the ability to post any of my own samples!

    These are cards, and would need to be re-sized for ATC purposes, but you get the idea:

    MAILING INSTRUCTIONS:

    1. Please send a self-addressed, business-sized envelope with loose postage, for whatever it cost you to send to me. International participants, please send $1 (U.S.) or loose U.S. postage, along with a self-addressed envie. If you use embellishments that require your envelope to be hand-canceled because of bumpiness, extra thickness, rigidity, or extra weight, you must include an additional 20 cents per ATC.

    2. Please be sure to put my address in the top left-hand corner of your return envelope.

    3. Label both envelopes with your AFA name and swap name. Also, be sure to include this information on the back of each ATC, and enclose each in an ATC sleeve.

    4. Be sure to mail in plenty of time so your cards reach me before the deadline. Late cards or cards not following these guidelines/postage will be returned to the owner.

    5. When you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from. Just click on the blue link for each person's name!
