Doily ATC's

There was another theme for the ATC (Artist Trading Cards) swap at; Doilies.

I stamped the larger Martha Stewart doily stamp with purple ink (SU-Lavender Lace). The inside doily was stamped off before stamping it into the center of larger doily (ink also by SU-Sage Shadow). 

I sprayed the whole card with Glimmer Mist (Purple Pansy) with one of their stencils on top. Then I roughed up the edges with  a pair of scissors before inking the card with Antique Linen distress ink. I used an Exacto knife to cut a space under and to the right of the doilies to insert the metal tag embellishment by Freckled Fawn. 

The center flowers were called "Fast Color Embroidered Appliques" by the Franken Trimming Co. Inc. The packaging says they are easy to sew but I adhered the appliques with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. 

A few other fun facts about these flower appliques that are printed on the company label: 
They were purchased at Steketee's in Grand Rapids, MI
Whoever bought these paid $0.65 for the four
The New York address of the company they were made by is so old there's no zip code. 

Thanks for stopping by.
