This year, I participated in Holiday Card Swap sponsored by Vane at Brooklyn Bride. The instructions were simple:
- You receive the names and addresses of up to 5 people to send cards to.
- Your cards can be store bought or handmade [think Gocco, glitter, photoshop, cut + paste, sewing, etc….]
- Send out your cards by December 15!
- Wait patiently by your mailbox!
I designed and painstakingly assembled my cards. I cut each pop-up window by hand using just an Xacto blade and a t-square. I ended up making 35 extra cards for friends and family. Despite the hard labor involved, I am pleased with my finished product.
Here is my contribution to the card swap.
Here’s one of their really great pop-up books.
