Default VINTAGE VALENTINE "POSTCARD" SWAP

VINTAGE POSTCARDS are one of my favorite things to look for when I go to antique stores. I love to read all the old sentiments and things written on them. My favorite are the Holiday cards (which are rare). I thought that I could reproduce some of these type cards through stamping.

I have made some postcards (distressed, grunged, and nearly authentic- looking vintage) for my Christmas cards this year. I have never seen any postcards swaps on SCS or elsewhere but thought I would attempt to host one. They are easy to do. You have to decorate the front and back. Hope some of you share the same interest and find this to be interesting.

Here is a sample of one I made:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...00&ppuser=9792

This will be a 5+1 swap (I suggest you make 8 and keep 2 for yourself to send to your Valentine(s)).

You will get 8 postcards from 2- 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock sheets. Each postcard will be 4.25x 5.5 inches. You would trim the same as if you were making 2- invitation -size cards but, cut where the crease would be. If there are questions please contact through email or PM.

Sign up due date is January 30, 2009
Mail date is February 5, 2009
I would like these in my hands no later than February 8th so I can return before Valentine's day.

5. Grunge, shabby, distressed technique added to the card somehow, somewhere.

6. You have to decorate both front and back of cards.

7. They need to look like a real postcard

Denise,
I'll take two spots. This sounds like a fun swap and I love your vintage Xams postcard. Thanks for hosting.

Oh great!... I will mark you down for 2 spots. I think this should be fun. Spread the word with any of your stamping friends that are interested in trying something new. We still need some people to sign up.

The postcards take just a bit longer to make because of all the aging, distressing, and decorating both sides. I truly had a blast coming up with the Christmas one I did. Thought a Valentine one would look great also. Thanks for looking and your kind compliment about the postcard.

BTW- your tags are being mailed back to you by tomorrow. I was waiting for one more but still have not got them. Sorry it took so long to get them back to you. I hope they get to you prior to the holidays.

I can't believe more people haven't signed up for this. I know a lot of stampers love vintage style. I received some beautiful vintage ATCs and tags from Xmas swaps.

We may have another gal sign up... she's thinking about it. She found a really cool post mark stamp (Valentine specific) through Great Impressions. I hope she decides to join. It will be something very different and fun.
