Celebrate Marie ATC

I've finished my ATCs for another swap on the Marie Antoinette group. The swap was to celebrate the first anniversary of the group and the theme was : Let them eat cake. Required was to feature a cake image on every card. I was recently given some napkins with cupcake images by a participant on one of my swap on the ATCsforAll site (thanks tattiekite!!) so I stamped a piece of calico with a selection of cake stamps and then made a fabric - paper collage putting those napkins to good use.

I fuzzy cut this background so that I had at least one cake on every ATC background and then layered these up with felt by stitching. I stamped the Marie image (from Cherry Pie Art Stamps) onto an acetate sheet using red Staz-On and cut it to ATC sized pieces as well. These were stitched on top of the background and a little pink butterfly was also adhered on top. Finally I printed out Celebrate Marie with my trusty Dymo writer and put it onto the ATCs.

Finally a piece of cardstock was added to the back, all the edges of the ATCs were finished with pink zig-zag stitching and a medley of size 11 seed beads were stitched on by hand.

Although all backgrounds are different the idea for all the ATCs was more or less the same so just one picture!

Wow wow wow, how much work went into these! I love the seed beads around the edge and the napkin idea is brilliant!

So beautiful. I love how the cake is in the background of the hair. Too cool.
