Red, White and Blue Marie swap

Well, at least something creative has come out of my hands today and about time too!! I'm showing you only one as they are all more or less the same. The ATCs were made for a swap on the Marie Antoinette site and the only requirements were to use red, white and blue (the colours of the French flag) as well as Marie on the cards.

I started with a white fabric with silver stars and ironed it onto Fast2Fuse. I then remembered I had bought some transparent ribbons in blue and red for another project and put them to good use, stitching them onto the white background. The image of Marie (from Alpha Stamps) was glued on (using my Xyron Creatopia) and the quotation Toujours dans mon coeur (always in my heart) was stitched on as shown. Then some rub-off red swirls were added as well as a self-adhesive blue sparkly heart.

A white fabric was ironed onto the other side of the Fast2Fuse, the edges of the card satin stitched in the appropriate colours and the finally the red, white and blue beads were stitched on.

Frieda, this ATC is fab! I love the star background fabric with the two colors over top, and your Marie image too works perfect as well as all your lovely bead work. Well done! The ladies are going to love them!
