Default Postal White on White Holiday Card swap Challenge, Due 10/15/2012

White on White Holiday Card swap Challenge, Due 10/15/2012

Who doesnít love white on white cards. They are just so elegant.

So the theme of this card swap is to create white on white Holiday cards-Christmas, Hanukkah or New Years is appropriate.

The possibilities are endless, but here are a few ideas:

1) You can dry emboss, or wet emboss an image
2) You can use your cuttlebug or any embossing tool for background or main image
3) Add a little glitter, bling, flowers, you know how to make it pop,

Show off your creativity in this one.

You must check in 2 weeks before the end date and let me know you are still in the swap. If you need to drop out that is fine life happens but I don't have the time to pm 20 people a few times to see if you are still in the swap. If you can't do this then don't sign up. Thank you. You must also check in after swap and let us know you received your swap back. Description requirement:
Full Size Card - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 It could be a regular full size card, Fancy folds, pop ups any style card are always welcome. If you make a long card or different size please include envies.

Quantity: 5+1
(the plus one is for the hostess...that's me

You will make six cards in total and receive five back
You will not get one of your own back, so make sure to make an extra one for yourself!

Vendor products:
No vendor restriction, but please use only good quality card stock
Please use at least 2 layers
Embellishments are optional on this card.
Take pride in making fabulous cards with friends in mind
Everyone is welcome. If you never done a swap before take the plunge it will be fun.

Recipe:
Although a recipe is not required, some folks may want to know how to case your card, or what kind of technique you are using as we are always trying to learn. If you decide to include your recipe please make sure to add Your Real Name, SCS Name, Swap Name, email address, products and techniques used.

If you want to include your favorite drink recipe please do.

Deadline: In my hands by October 15th, 2013 and I will have them postal within 10 days of the due date. Cards not received by then will regrettably be returned to sender as not to hold up the swap.
Mailing instructions: Packaging and Swap Return:
Mailing: Put your cards in a zip lock bag with the swap name, your real name, and your SCS name. Please send a self addressed stamped envelope with the same postage as it took to send to me plus two extra stamps just in case needed. Thanks!
DO NOT send metered postage as we all know they only work for day of purchase!! If you would rather use Priority mail, please include one $5.35 priority stamp and a self-addressed priority label. I will provide priority envelope. If you are mailing from Canada please include $4 US to cover return postage, and I will return whatever is left to you.


All return mail will be sent via First Class unless you request (and provide for) otherwise. NO METERED POSTAGE PLEASE.


Please donít hesitate to post questions to this thread. I welcome all advice. Welcome all swappers to post messages and make friends during the swap.
Thanks for joining!!

Count me in Vivian. I havent missed one of your swaps in a long time. A quick question on this one. Should everything on the card be white, (i.e. embellishments) or is a splash of color acceptable. Just wondering. Thanks.

I've never done a white on white before. Is it ok to use a different colour ink (black, etc.)?
