    Behind Door #1, Door #2, Door #3 - AS WELL AS Door #4, Door #5, Door #6 -- Due May 08, 2020



    RETURNS MAILED



    Is this a “normal” door, with a person on the other side? Is she A DREAM? Or a DUD??
    Is this a door to a spaceship, with an Alien, or a Storm Trooper, or a GIANT BUG on the other side?
    What would be hiding behind a car door? Or who would be driving?
    Your mother? The cockroach from MIB?
    Who, or what is ready to come out from behind the dog door at the bottom of the people’s door?

    Is it a Single door, a Dutch Door, a French Door?
    How about a trap door, to Wonderland, or the Entrance to Dante’s He!!?
    Would you consider a gate, to Spring, to Winter, to a garden?
    How about a door in a tree, to a fairy's living room?
    Or a door in the hills, to a gnome at home?

    What is behind that door/gate? Something scary? Something exciting? Something unrecognizable?

    Partial doors, such as screen doors, entry doors (often part "glass"), or the "Dutch" door are also acceptable

    A separate door can be hinged or taped or folded to an ATC.
    The card can be folded in half, or partially folded, to make a door.
    (This is sometimes called a "triptych")
    When we think about opening a door, we usually think of looking INTO a house or home.
    You can also look OUT a door, or have children or friends looking out to see what is going on OUTSIDE your door.
    The bottom line is, the card must feature a door or a gate that actually opens to show something else behind the door.




    * This is a 3 for 3 or 6 for 6 card trade. Make 3 or 6 cards and receive the same number back.

    * ALL mediums and techniques are welcome. Please make sure you add some depth to your cards, whatever style you choose. Your mediums can include, but are not limited to: paper, tissue paper, crayon, acrylic, watercolor, gel pens, colored pencil, rubber stamping, ink, newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, etc. Please do not take a magazine image, cut it into a square, glue it onto some colored paper, and call it done. Make the ATC YOUR CREATION! I do ask that you send in your best work. Something you would not be disappointed in receiving if it was sent to you.


    *Please sign up by posting to this thread.
    * ONLY ATCs allowed. No APCs accepted.
    * All cards need to be standard ATC size: 2.5” x 3.5”
    * All cards need to be sent each in their own plastic sleeve. This is for their protection!
    * All cards need to be sturdy enough to earn the name “card” (no floppy or flimsy paper). If your ATC is drawn or otherwise created on a single sheet of paper, and "flimsy", please back your ATC with something stiffer, such as a cereal box. Just as important, check for cards that are too thick. Each card must still be capable of fitting into the standard ATC sleeve. If your ATC will not fit into an ATC sleeve, it is too bulky.
    * Please put the Swap name and your Username on the back of all cards. And please write clearly on everything!
    .....We can't give you itrades and/or You Rock! points if we don't know who you are.
    * Please confirm there is enough postage on the envelope.
    .....Please check both the envelope you send to me, and the envelope I need to send back to you.
    * If you are unsure about mailing ATCs, or just may want to pick up some good tips for shipping, here is a great link.
    http://atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=909

    * If you are inside the U.S., please include a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches, with 55 cents postage, or one "Forever" stamp if trading 3 cards; or one forever and one 15 cent stamp (additional ounce postage) if trading 6 cards, OR if your cards are extra heavy or extra bulky (or 2 forever stamps if that is easier).

    * Canadian and other International participants, if you have U.S. funds, or U.S. postage, it is greatly appreciated. Please send $1.00 or 2 "Forever" stamps. However, since many of you do not have access to U.S. stamps, I will cover your postage. Please include a self addressed envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches (10 x 28 cm), or if you do not have the correct size envelope, please include a large mailing label with your address and I will provide the envelope.
    * I apologize for being so demanding about the envelope size, but the postal rates in the US charge extra for thickness. When cards are stacked, or overlapped, in (a smaller) envelope, it almost always costs more to mail. If you send me a small envy, the cards get stacked. When I use the 4 inch by 9 1/2 inch business size envelopes, I can spread the cards over the area, making a THIN package, and only pay for basic (minimum) postage.

    * Cards are due to me by May 08, 2020. Please allow sufficient lead time for cards to get to me, particularly if you are an International participant. Returns will be mailed promptly. Late cards will be returned, as it is unfair to those participants who always have their cards in early or on time.

    * A hostie card in this theme is appreciated but not at all expected!

    * Thank you for considering this swap! If you have my address from previous swaps, it hasn't changed. If you are new, or have misplaced my address, please send me a PM.

    * Above all ~Have fun!!!

    This sounds like fun!
    Lurking for the moment.
    Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

    Do the doors have to open "inwards" to show something inside the house/behind the door?
    Can the doors open outward to the out-doors (or show someone knocking at the door)?

    Welcome Boots.
    I signed you up.

    Doors can absolutely open outwards.
    Most people open doors inwards, but opening to the outside is great.

    Additionally,
    Door does not have to open on hinges
    Door can swivel on a brad, so long as it opens to reveal something inside (or outside)
