2023 Holiday Card Swap

Wouldn’t we all like to receive five beautiful, unique, handmade holiday cards, created by our fellow Paper Anthologists? Well, let’s do it! Sign up for the 2023 Paper Anthology Holiday Card Swap by emailing elisabeth@paperanthology no later than Saturday, November 25th. Then make five holiday cards (they can be of the same design, or different) and drop them off (with appropriate envelopes) at Paper Anthology by Saturday, December 2nd. Your swap cards will be ready for you to pick up on Saturday, December 9th. Participants who make a sixth card will have it displayed in the store for all to admire.

Please note: For this event we request that no products from demonstrator companies (such as Stampin’ Up or Close to My Heart) be included in your card designs.

Need a little inspiration to get started? We’ve got some gorgeous new holiday paper lines in-store, including Echo Park’s Winter Land (see photo above) as well as Doodlebug’s Gingerbread Kisses and Carta Bella’s Season’s Greetings (both pictured below). Not to mention lots of beautiful stamps and dies from all your favorite companies; and don’t forget the lovely Press Plates and accessories for Spellbinders’ BetterPress System. In fact, there are too many options to describe in one post… you should probably stop by the store and take a look!
