2021 Holiday Card Swap

Would you like to receive five beautiful, unique, handmade holiday cards, created by your fellow Paper Anthologists? Then join us for the 2021 Holiday Card Swap! Just email elisabeth@paperanthology.com to sign up, then make five holiday cards and drop them off at the store by Saturday, December 4th. They can be any size, shape, style, color, and theme; though it is requested that you avoid using products from a Certain Stamp Company whose initials are S.U. and whose name rhymes with “Glamping Pup“. If you’d like to make a sixth card, it will be displayed proudly inside Paper Anthology to inspire everyone who comes into the store! In Mid-December, you’ll get an email from Elisabeth that your swap cards are ready, and you’ll pick up five awesomely assorted cards. Sound like fun? Email elisabeth@paperanthology today!
