You will have to send each of your partners 5 cards (w/ envelopes) that are open themes (meaning anything - with in good taste) and sender's choice. This is international and newbie welcomed.

I love it! These could be used as swap cards.

I love doing shaped mini cards on my cricut would these be acceptable if similar in size?

RBM3579 10/12/2010 #

toothteri: yes and that sounds very interesting :)

LOVE this swap idea! Why hasn't anyone done one before (to my knowledge)? Good one, RBM3579. :)

Question 1: Should they be like greeting/note cards (that open and close), or do you prefer a 1-page card (like a business card, but 2"x3")? Or can we do either kind? (I like both!)

Question 2: Also, if we find envies available to buy that are that size, is it OK not to make the envies?

Papercaper: Hello this is my 4th one, but I've been gone for a while. #1 - these are like mini note cards left blank inside, hopeful to use for any occasion. And #2 - yes - if you can buy the envelopes in the right size YEA- the cards are the important handmade part. Let me know if you find a good deal - I found bank evvelopes 2.25x3.5 that were too expensive. Happy Swapping.

Thanks for your answer. Mini-notecards it is! Ok

I hope a few of the 34 that are watching sign up for this fun swap.

I started my cards today, and what fun they are! I even took the time to make a template for an envelope. They are really easy to make. The dimensions are: 5 inches by 4 inches. I made the side flaps 1/2 inch each.

I have a quick question. Do we put our (the artists) info on the back of the card i.e. Made by ColeCreations? Or is it supposed to be left blank?

Too bad I couldn't join. This looks fun!

ArtyBeth3 11/19/2010 #

@ColeCreations while I can't answer officially because I'm not the coordinator for this swap, personally, I think we should be able to put our information on the back; afterall, we created the cards.

RBM3579 11/19/2010 #

RBM3579: Sorry for the delay. Everything about the mini cards is sender's choice, so you can put your info on the back if you like. As for myself, I have put signature mini stamp that doesn't take away from the cards, but I don't all the time. Happy Swapping
