    Leonarda's Old Fashion Christmas Card Swap Due December 5

    Leonarda’s Old Fashion Christmas Card Swap: Due December 5, 2021

    Do you remember before the internet families would swap out Christmas cards every year? You would have an address book just for Christmas cards with "Sent" and Received" check boxes for each year. It was fun to hang the cards up on your mantel or around your door, etc. Some people sent annual update letters that told about important activities (vacations, deaths, kids going to college, awards, etc.) from their prior year.... (Now that I think about it, it was sorta like a Facebook update once a year! lol)

    For this swap you will make small Christmas cards to swap with each other. Use card stock cut 3.5"x 5" and fold in half to make the normal ATC sized card. Write something on the inside like you normally would! And please add your info on the back of the card like always.

    Any medium is acceptable, but no bulky or 3D items, please.

    For this swap, you will make 3 or 6 sturdy Christmas card ATCs that open like real cards.
    Standard size 2.5" x 3.5" on sturdy card stock.

    USA: send SASE for 3 cards or a SASE with two stamps for 6 cards.
    International enclose 1.00 for postage or 3 US forever stamps for 3 cards or double for 6 cards.

    Let’s grow our creativity and think outside the box!

    Please do your best work and make your cards unique to your own style.

    This sounds like fun, and I love Christmas cards! I'm so sad that very few people send them anymore. Please sign me up!

    I am lurking for the moment. Do we put anything on the inside of the card? Like maybe Seasons Greetings or something, and then the identifiers we normally put on the back of a card?

    This sounds wonderful! I will lurk until I find out how long it will take me to get some US forever stamps.

    I'm in! This sounds so fun. I don't usually sign up before I get cards made but I'm up for this challenge. I have so much Christmas stuff from making regular sized cards that I shouldn't have any trouble.<knock on wood>

    I am definitely in. I still mail cards every year. My grandmother used to love receiving cards and would tape them up in the living room. Thanks for hosting this fun swap!
