What are inkbox cards? The bigger sister of an ATC! :) I found out about these cards through a swap on Instagram hosted by sandy_creas. And now I'm hooked! I love the size!

The cards are 7,6 x 7,6 cm (3 x 3 inch) with rounded edges. Basically this is the size of the bottom of a big Tim Holz Distress Ink box. Hence the name.

Like for ATCs there are no rules for inkbox cards other than the given size with rounded edges. Every media is allowed: paint, cut, draw, doodle...

Theme is: postage people

Make at least one "posage people" (combining a real postage stamp with a head of human and a new human body) and add it to your design.

Some inspiration here

For the base use some cardstock or similar. No flimsy paper.

One card to one partner.

Send the inkbox card in a decorated envelope. Put some effort in decorating the envelope. Not just only a sticker or a single stripe of washi

Have fun!

  • No late swaps on your dashboard. Or notice me beforehand.

  • I will exclude you from the swap if I see one or both of the mentioned things and you haven't noticed me beforehand about it.

So, if I don't decorate the envelope, I can be rated down? I don't think that a decorated envelope should be a part of the swap for an ink box card.

Yes, the decorated envelope is part of the swap. In case that the envelope isn't decorated, it's possible to be rated down.

That's too bad; I'd always rate on the swap itself, and would prefer to be rated on it, too. I'm out, sorry.
