    APC Swap: Flowers and a Little Something Else: 8s, Due March 17, 2021

    Swap Due Date - March 17, 2021
    Signup date - March 3, 2021
    Number of Cards - 4:4
    Number of participants - Unlimited
    Media - open, must be attached to a 2 x 3 playing card and the top left number/suit must be showing
    (no bulky embellishments please!)


    This will be a 4:4 swap - that is, you will send in a full set of four (♥, ♦, ♣, ♠) 8’s**


    For this swap, we will be making Altered Playing Cards with the theme of Flowers, and a Little Something Else. Meaning the main theme of the card should be Flowers, and then you will add something else along with the flowers. Your “something else” can be absolutely anything that you want! Birds, butterflies, insects, people, animals, you get the idea. Anything goes!

    Please note:
    - Real playing cards must be used.
    - APCs must be the standard size of 2.5" x 3.5". Note this is POKER size, not bridge size! (Wrongly sized cards will be returned).
    - Cards must have one of each suit (incorrect cards will be returned. It makes swapping very difficult.)
    - The top left suit and number must be visible/uncovered.
    - Flat embellishments only please.
    - Please include username and your location on the back of your cards.
    - Originals only - no copies or prints. (Cards can be duplicates as long as they're still individually created and we have more than 5 people in the swap!

    US players: send me a mailing label and a forever stamp.

    International players: send me a mailing label and $1

    Who would like to play?

    Here are the cards that I made. Suzi got them with my 9s.

    Hostess card, it has a cat of course



    I got these die cuts in the mail from someone a long time ago. All 4 from the same person. I finally got to use them. It took a little trial and error to work out the different colors and images with the flower patterns. This was my final result





    These are also in my gallery too, if you need a close up.
