LARGE ALTERED ROLODEX CARDS SWAP - Send in by September 18th

3" x 5" ROLODEX - Acrylic Paint, applique, rubber stamped images, collage (by HC)
What to do with an unexpected donation of  office supplies? Someone recently gifted Beau with a big box full of blank 3" x 5" Rolodex cards.  She decided to host a fun swap with them, even though most of our previous Rolodex swaps have been with the smaller sized cards.

For interested potential swappers who do not have Rolodex cards of this size, Beau will gladly send you some blanks if you email your request by August 14th to allow time for her to send them out to you, and then for you to alter and mail them back to her.  (Email address below)

If she sends you some blank Rolodex cards, kindly enclose an EXTRA 70-cents postage when you participate in the swap, to help reimburse her for her mailing expenses.  Thank you.

This will be an ARTIST'S CHOICE for subject matter, media and whatever else you can think of to alter the look of a plain white card.  Let yourself go crazy on this one!  Try a new technique, or use ridiculous materials to decorate them!  (Just remember that these cards have to be mailed out to other recipients in standard envelopes.)  Create a maximum of FOUR cards.

SWAP DETAILS:
  • You may submit as many as four cards.  (You will get back the same number you send, each from a different artist)
  • Mail your ALTERED ROLODEX CARDS to your swap host in an envelope.  Your host will mail them to other swappers in their envelopes, and mail some of their cards to you in your self-addressed envelope.
  • Please insert waxed paper or parchment in between the cards so they don't get stuck together in the envelope, especially if you use glue, paint or sealant
  • Write “MMSA - Altered Rolodex " and your contact information on the back of each card so your recipient can acknowledge receipt of your art.
  • Cards with 3-D embellishments will increase the postage costs when your swap host processes them...  Please include extra postage and perhaps some thin padding.  Thank you.
INTERNATIONAL SWAPPERS - contact the swap host regarding using PayPal to cover return mailing postage, or make other arrangements.
