Card Swap

Christmas card swap.
Want to swap cards this year??

I'm making 5x7 wood block stamped postcards for Christmas.
The carved block is pictured. The image is of a redwing black bird.
I live next door to Camp Redwing, Girl Scout Camp.
 Redwing black birds are very common in the area.

The stamped image will be the first layer on the postcard.
I have a few prototypes going right now.
The final "look" will be posted in a few days.

I plan to sew a back on the postcard, it will be two layers of card stock.

I decided to do a postcard because it seemed like a more environmentally friendly thing to do.
 No envelopes, so many end in up in the trash!

If you would like to swap Christmas cards be they hand made or store bought email me.
I will swap cards with the first 30 people who send me an email with their home address.
I will reply to the email with my address.

Hope to hear from you!
