If you are anything like me, you end up with extra / excess Christmas cards. I always put them aside for next year, but when next year comes, I'm plagued with the fear of sending someone a duplicate card. This swap is to send off our excess cards and to receive a unique mix that we can use with confidence next Christmas! :)

To participate, you must have a 4.98 rating with no recent 1s or 3s - in this case, recent is defined as having been received in November or December. (NOTE: 1s or 3s from before Nov. and Dec. may still not be eligible if there has been no amendment to the situation). This version is U.S. only, but if there is a demand for international (at least 10 interested folks), I will HAPPILY host an international version.

You will have a total of 3 partners. Send each partner 3 blank Christmas cards with their corresponding envelopes. I will be hosting multiple rounds so if you want to send / collect more than 9 Christmas cards, join another round. There will be a round each week of December and the first week of January :)

Christmas cards MUST be in excellent / new conditions. Cards MUST be store bought. All themes (religious / non religious) are welcome in this swap so do not join if you're strictly opposed to one or the other (remember, you can send those you can't use off in another round!).

Any questions, feel free to PM me!

Be sure to include a note with the swap name AND your user ID

A great question arose... In regards to charities that commercially print / produce and send blank Christmas cards, those cards are OKAY to use for this swap. The "must be store bought" was to vet out any hastily made handmade cards. These cards must still be in excellent / brand new condition

Do all three cards need to be different from each other? Or is 2 or 3 of same okay?

@redyellownow Great question! I would attempt to make it as mixed as you possibly can, but if the only excess cards you have are of the same design, then I'd send what you have on hand. :) There are 5 rounds of this swap so if the duplicates are unwanted, they can be used in another round. I know I myself wouldn't mind repeats because they're still new to me :)
