Card Swap: 2021 Mini Catalog

Card Swap: 2021 Mini Catalog: Christmas / Holiday Theme

  • Card Swap: 2021 Mini Catalog Due:  October 1
The countdown to Christmas has already started. It’s time to start thinking about Holiday / Christmas Card ideas. I’m hosting a Christmas Card Swap to help us all with some inspiration and ideas for ourselves and our customers. These are great for personal use as well as to help prepare you with ideas for your upcoming Stampin’ Up classes, workshops, open houses and events.
 
I’M A CUSTOMER MAY I PARTICIPATE?
This swap is designed for Stampin’ Up Demonstrators, and is open to all demonstrators in the US (for shipping purposes). Customers are able to participate as long as the rules are followed. The original intent is to help with classes/workshops so all supplies must be current.
 
Please read through ALL the rules and guidelines carefully and follow them. We will be receiving and sorting hundreds of cards and need YOUR help to make sure everything runs smoothly.
 
This swap is open to all demonstrators, all levels. Come join the fun.

HOW TO SWAP

  • 15 FULL CARD SWAP15 card swap, you will receive 14 back. You may do up to 2 groups.

Card Swap: 2021 Mini Catalog FAQ

  • Can I make more then 1 set of cards? You can make up to 2 sets of 15 swap cards. 
  • What do you mean by “Full Card”? This means it is not a “card front” or post card style. We do full cards so the cards can be used after.
  • What is the standard card size? A standard card size is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ (folded in half) OR 11″ x 4-1/4″ (folded). You card may vary in size (for example 6×6). However, 3″x3″, ATC size and tags are not acceptable substitutes. 
  • Where do you get the clear envelopes?
    • We sell them in the catalog #102619. All swaps MUST be in a Stampin’ Up! clear envelope, ready to display upon receipt. If SU! doesn’t sell the envelope, you may not use it.
  • I’m participating in another swap, can I use the same design?
    • No. Swap card designs MUST be exclusive to this swap
  • I’ve never done a card swap before and I’m nervous I’ll make a mistake
