Official 2016 Christmas Card and ATC SWAP

Postby DeniseM » Oct 2nd, '16, 8:07 pm

Here we go ladies.

Simone-card and ATC swap
Deb-ATC swap
Laura-card and ATC swap
Shannon-card and ATC swap
Carolyn-ATC swap
Denise-card and ATC swap
Marianne ATC swap
Simone


ATC's are 2.5x3.5 with a string or something to use as a hanger as an ornament. Christmas or Winter themed. Can be all the same or each one unique.
Christmas cards can be any size and the same or all unique.

3 for 3 ATC's and 5 for 5 Christmas cards. I figure that works out perfectly.
Also, you can do just the ATC swap, the card swap or both. Completely up to each person.


United States ladies please send with a self addressed envelope with the postage already added. Your return package will be a little heavier than what you send so keep that in mind.

International ladies please paypal me at kookalicious@gmail.com. 5 dollars will be close enough to the return postage price. 3 dollars is what I had been saying but it usually was more than that.

Deadline is November 30th. We are slightly flexible on that but pretty firm by a few days into December. I want to have time to swap everything out and have time to get them all to you.

If you could type your address out on this thread, that way I don't have to try and figure out everyone's handwriting. :D

This sounds like a lot of fun! Just a quick question, November 30 is when it needs to be at you?

So it is all Christmas themed.
Cards I'm not so sure because I am participating in an adventcalendar swap here and decided to make two cards for each recipient for my day. That's 48 cards that need to be finished by the end of this month. (Call me crazy!)

But the ATC sounds interesting as it is something I haven't done before and it would be a great challenge to master. In the end, it is supposed to be like a tree ornament?

Yes, we include a string or ribbon so the ATCs can be hung like an ornament. That is not the customary thing with ATCs in general, but for this swap that's what we do!

Your advent calendar swap sounds like a fun but huge project! Will you share what you do for it in the gallery? I would love to see!

I do hope you'll do the ATC swap here. It is soooo much fun and goodness!!
