    Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead - OPEN MEDIUM - Due November 15, 2019

    Swap Due Date – November 15, 2019
    Signup/withdraw Date – None; please just communicate
    Number of Cards - 3 : 3 or 6 : 6
    Number of Participants – Unlimited
    Medium – Open - hand-drawn/painted or collage

    I love this holiday! Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead is a traditional Mexican holiday which has gained a lot of popularity and is now celebrated in many other parts of the world. It is a multi-day celebration during which family and friends get together to honor and remember past loved ones. A lot of the celebrating takes place in cemeteries where the dead are buried, and includes feasts, music, colorfully decorated skulls, processions, alters, and marigolds, the symbolic flower of death.

    There are many images available on line for inspiration. I do like some bling, but try to keep it from ripping apart your envelopes! I hate when stuff gets mangled in the mail. Anything else is up to your own creative expression!

    Guidelines:

    1. Each card must be a standard size of 2.5 inches x 3.5 inches.
    2. Each card must be in an individual plastic sleeve.
    3. Each card should be labeled with the swap name, your username, your real name, date of creation, and your location.

    Mailing Guidelines:

    1. Please mail cards in a business sized envelope, spreading them over the space of the envelope.
    2. Tape your cards together or onto a sturdy background when mailing, using an easy-release tape such as painter’s tape or washi tape to avoid damaging them.
    3. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for your returns.
    4. If you are mailing from the U.S., include the proper amount of postage based on the number of cards you will be receiving.
    5. If you are mailing internationally, please provide an address label and the appropriate amount of cash or postage for your returns.

    When you are ready to mail your cards, please private message me for my address. If you have it from an earlier swap, it has not changed.

    iTraders are given by me to all players on the same day that I swap the cards out. Please make sure to leave an iTrader in turn for your host (me!) when you receive your cards, and leave "you rocks" for your fellow players from whom you have received cards.

    I will provide you with a note informing you who received your cards as well as the cards you received for your records, in case you're an organizational freak like me!

    I LOVE to get host cards, but of course it is not a requirement to play in the swap!

    Okay, who wants to play?
