Card Swaps

The Cricut board does card swaps for different holidays. I joined for the Easter Card Swap. I thought it would be fun to have our own card swap on here, if there were enough interested. I don't know if we would have enough time for Easter, but maybe we could do this in the future for like [COLOR=red]July 4th or something?[/COLOR]

What we would need to do is have a sign-up and see how many of us want to participate. If we have 7 girls, then we would each need to make 7 cards. Then we would mail them to one person with a return envelope with adequate postage, then she would divide them all up and get them back to everyone.

It would be a fun way to give and receive some pretty cards. So what are your thoughts on this?

The return envelope would need to be Self-addressed and be atleast 5"x7", to fit the cards in.
ETA, maybe instead of July 4th, since I know I usually don't send Independence Day cards Smile maybe we could do a birthday or thank you card swap?

I would LOVE to do this ... and I'd love have it for something I'd actually use cards for, like birthdays or anniversaries. I made 20 Easter cards 2-3 years ago at a Stamp Camp, and I think I've only sent 4 of them ...

Brittany, of course you can participate! Smile Since there are no holiday deadlines, we could make it like 3-4 weeks to get the cards done. I don't know, I'll wait on others' opinions.

Sounds like a great idea. The idea is to make cards for other to use, correct? I don't do much with paper anymore, could I make and print digital cards to participate? Maybe I could do a hybrid? Hmmm, I'll have think about how I do something too.

YES! Digital scrappers, please participate! I think that would be great!!! :DAnd yes, they are for them to use, so please don't fill anything out in the insides of the cards, unless it's part of the greeting.

Charys- thats such a great idea! I check out that cricut card board a lot and was wondering how the swaps went... what a great way to stock up on some homemade cards!! Count me in! (I felt odd signing up for the one the cricut board since i don't know those ladies)
