Default postal: Christmas Card Kit Swap ~ 3+1 ~ Due October 13th

This swap is for Christmas Card kits. Card kits are a great way to use new products you don't have, play with images you might not have seen before, or just find a new combo of colors/items YOU may not have put together for your self. I LOVE card kits...they are wonderful. They are a great grab and go item to take to a crop, or put together a card in a pinch. If you've never done a card kit swap I encourage you to get your feet wet and come play with us. But be'll be swimming in the deep end in no time at all...they are very addicting!!

For this round of the swap I'm going to have different Categories of Kits. Please let me know which group you want. Something in your kit must be from that category...example....the Santa Group. Your image can be santa, your paper can be santa, your embellishments can be santa. Basically your kit must have a santa theme. You can take as many spots as you want and any or all categories. If I do not have enough people in one group to swap out so nobody gets their own back, I will combine please be aware of this when you sign up...I don't want anyone disapointed or suprised. Next round I'll mixed things up a bit...

Lastly...and MOST IMPORTANT...have fun!!

Now for the rest of the details:

Card Kits should include (at minimum) the following:

1. 4 to 6 images on 1/4 sheets of white cs with Copic black (Memento, Adirondack) inks or Waterproof black (Versafine, Pallette Noir); not colored in. Label your kits with ink type, please. Images must be perfectly stamped (no smudges or faded areas) and only stamped on one side of the cardstock please. You can either send all the same image or 2 different ones.
2. Four 6”x6” sheets of coordinating designer/patterned papers.
3. Twelve inches of ribbon, trim, cording or other ‘fiber’.
4. Six to Eight coordinating embellishments (brads, buttons, primas, gems, etc).
5. Optional additions include, punched shapes, coordinating sentiments, handmade charms, dry embossed cardstock, pictures of sample cards (from kit contents), card sketches, or anything else you can think of.
