I thought it would be fun to do another card swap, but this time do it with a twist. Instead of a holiday/event theme- I thought it would be fun to do color themes, or technique themes. YOU CHOOSE THE SENTIMENT as long as it's in-line with the theme you sign up for.

The Rules:
    The due date will be Friday July 13th. This means in my hands, NOT the mail by date.

    Please send a return envelope, mail label (with your address), and the amount of postage it took to send PLUS 3 extra stamps. Cards are heavy, so the extra postage WILL be needed. I will send anything unused back to you.

    Please put each group of cards in a ziploc bag with the name of the group, and your SB.com name

    Include envelopes for all the cards you make. You do NOT have to make the envelopes, just provide them.

    Make one card for each person in the group, including yourself. You may send a place card if you wish.

    If the groups fill up, I will open up additional groups.


THEMES:

Punched Out: (For this card group, you will create a card that primarily uses punches to decorate the front of your card.)

Group A:
1.karmax3
2.i heart scrapping
3.hostess
4.Melissa Birlem
5.tlcaddison

Group B
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Red, White, and Blue (Since the cards are due in July, I thought it would be fun to do a red, white, and blue theme. Make the sentiment be whatever you would like, just as long as you use these colors.)

Group A:
1.karmax3
2.mjmone
3.Scrappiebeth
4.charcats7
5.texlady

Group B:

Hey Jessica, love this idea, but I can't make an envelope to save my life. I have tried and tried. Let me think about this one...I really love the idea.

ohhh no no no!! You don't have to make any envelopes...you just have to provide envelopes for your card. You can go to any craft store and buy just envelopes...or you can go and buy card blanks that come with envelopes.

All you have to make is the card

I'd like red, white and blue; tagged; and purple & gray please.

Now, I'm not reading it as we have to make our own envelopes, but that we need to provide one, cuz I'm not an envelope maker also

Correct, you do NOT have to make your own envelope, just provide one. I'll go through and try to make that more clear. Sorry!

I'm happy to see all the new faces!! Welcome.
