Stampin' Up! Convention Swaps
Making swaps for convention! Takes a lot of preparation, especially if making many of same swap. I was in 2 organized swapsandmade other card fronts to swap too.
I have been in the same 3x3card swap for several years now and always love the cards I receive AND I use these size cards all the time. I use a lot of this size card for thank you's for a variety of uses...my servers tip at a restaurant, an employee anywhere who helps me. They are great to attach to a gift for a variety of occasions. I wanted to use the Ronald McDonald House stamp set but for a thank you....
It was a lot of work, but i was happy with it. My wonderful husband helped cut and punch all the pieces of the card! I made 80 of them!
