Default February post card swap your birthstone shape or colour

Sorry I'm late putting this up we only had 3 last month so we'll see how we fare this time.

We will be making One fabric postcard.
This swap is open to all levels of sewing.
*Please post pictures of postcards you receive.
* Cards must measure approx 4" 6"
* Must be predominantly sewed and/or quilted. Embroidery by hand or machine is also welcome.
* Must have some type of finished edge.
* There are tutorials on YouTube if you need some references.
* Pinterest has many good ideas if you need some inspiration to kick off your creative juices. *If you can take a picture of you postcard before you send it, it would be appreciated. That way if your partner cannot post a picture for some reason, then you can post it. We all love looking at each other's work.
* Note: We will only be sending postcards due to the price of postage. Please let me know if you can send internationally. It costs around $1.15.

*Sign ups start ***Now***. and end when we have at least 5 participants

*International Postcards should be sent out ASAP

Hi! I’m interested in giving this a try. I’ve never made a quilted postcard. Any tips and suggestions are welcome!

Hi. I am wondering what you all use/prefer for forming the postcards. I've used a stiff center, which I dislike sewing on, but like the finished product and it held up well mailing. I've received several with alternatives that are lovely... and that seem much more fun to make. Since the challenge of postal services here in FL, USA, I have had to mail in regular envelop, as opposed to sending as a traditional post card. I guess I'm really asking: 1) does it matter for our purposes? 2) do you have preferences?
You can tell I have too much sitting-around-home time, hahah.
Regards.

I don't think it matters. As long as there's 3 layers and quilted and edged. Only another few days and I'll put up who you will be posting to
