March ATC Swap


I received this ATC from my friend Janice last week. It commemorates the St. Patrick's Day birthday of her brother, John Michael, when he was a little boy.
Janice tells me that she printed the photo on a transparency then softened the edges with a flame. I love the added stitching as well as the whole design, but most of all, the sweet look of expectancy on a little boy's face as he waits to blow out his birthday candle.
What a treasure!

I'm with you on your comments here! That expression on his little face just makes me want to sweep him up in a hug! I like the idea of using a transparency. I had never thought of that! How interesting!

I had asked you about what kind of glue you use when making fabric cards (if you answered, I totally missed it.) It almost looks as if your fabric cutouts are starched! I plan to buy a yard of cupcake fabric that I actually would like to share with YOU. Could you give me a tutorial on doing what you do? Maybe even a special tutorial post here would be nice. Your work is so precise and exquisite. I think others would enjoy it, too!

Love, KJ
