I love fabric ATC - the only reason they are advanced is you must use at least three items or techniques on your cards from the following list - you may use any fabric and any other bits you wish - Please use some sort of interfacing so your card is sturdy - You can make them funky or serious - feel free to think out side the box.

seed beads
hand sewing
machine sewing
hand dyed fabric
hand embroidery - any type
sliced seashells (fairly flat)
handdyed lace
wool felt
hand dyed scrim
Stumpwork embroidery
Please use card protectors when mailing to protect your cards and make sure your screen name is marked on the back so people know you created this perfect little pcs of art Please also include your screen name on the back of your return envelopes. PM me when you are ready to send your cards and I will PM you my address.

02-29-2008, 02:50 PM
I couldn't resist it's time for me to get into my stash of fabric, beads n trims. ..*smile*..

03-01-2008, 11:53 AM
Question...I know I could do this a few ways, but, How are you all putting your cards together..i.e. fabric on ? , then embroidered, emblish, and ? on back, and how are each attached?

03-01-2008, 12:10 PM
I'm using fabric for front and back, putting interfacing in the middle, and using my sewing machine to attach the layers.

03-01-2008, 12:56 PM
Me too Katie, I find thats the best way. Had lots of fun starting mine today, i have rediscovered my love of textiles,might even stretch to some feltmaking!!

03-01-2008, 01:24 PM
Hello, I have just joined and love the idea of this swap as it combines two of my interests - fabric and ATC. Would it be possible for me to join in?:unsure:
all best wishes, Shirley

03-01-2008, 05:59 PM
I use a quilt sandwich ie backing, thin pellon and top fabric then when I have finished sewing I cut to size then add beading etc. Then I overcast the edges with a thin ATC card on the back. Keeps it nice and rigid and you can write on the back.

03-01-2008, 06:12 PM
Thanks for responding to my question...it will give me options...I just had an idea today and trying to work it out ;)

03-01-2008, 07:05 PM
I have 3 of my cards finished :jiggy:

03-02-2008, 12:00 AM

Thank you guys !!

03-02-2008, 12:03 PM
Afternoon folks, there is some fantastic work on display, I love the variety from you all. I've had a fabulous weekend, dying fabric, ripping, stitching, quilting,hand sewing etc heres one I have finished

03-02-2008, 12:09 PM
love it poshscot - the bold colors and beading is so nice!

03-02-2008, 04:16 PM
Poshscot oh my it's beautiful.

03-02-2008, 07:25 PM
Beautiful work everyone.

03-02-2008, 07:57 PM
Very nice poshscot! I have been working on mine as well. I have some pending swaps ahead of this one, but I just could not help myself! I was digging through stash yesterday and found a sample of "slash" work that I had saved to remind me of the idea. I stitched up some neat fabrics into a card and just need to embellish it a bit more...after I wash it a time or two more to get the right kind of fray happening with the slashes. I am sewing again...YEAH!

03-04-2008, 03:47 PM
My cards are being mailed today.......

03-04-2008, 08:06 PM

03-10-2008, 08:07 PM
I was talking to my son-in-law tonight. He said that my granddaughter, Georgie, and her Sunday school class were raising money to buy a goat for a family in Africa. Apparently, a single goat can change the viability of a family. I immediately thought about you.
Take care.

03-10-2008, 10:19 PM
poshscot - will be watching for them :)

Mo Bunny - welcome to the swap - will pm you my address :)

Kat that is wonderful - it does make such a huge difference to their lives - our goat club does that sometimes - this is the group we have gone thru - wonderful way to help people. :)

03-19-2008, 03:40 PM
I am going to try and pull up my ATC's. I decided to use the cuffs of shirts that we had cut off to make paint shirts for the kids at Bible School last summer! The pack rat that I am, I said...Don't throw those away...came home anc cut off the buttons and laid these cuffs aside...so here they are in a new life ;)
I also used toothpicks on two cards and knitted with them.

03-19-2008, 03:43 PM
Here are the remaining 2

03-19-2008, 07:56 PM
Those are great. I love them. For some reason I have gone glitsy in this. I have nearly finished.

03-20-2008, 02:17 AM
Finished!! I'll post after the Easter break.

03-20-2008, 10:02 AM
Very pretty! I just love the bottom right one!!

03-20-2008, 12:00 PM
Karen those are so cool - love the knitted ones and the recyled cuffs is a great idea!

Jackie - how pretty! love the details in them.

03-20-2008, 12:30 PM
GG - should we put .58 on the return envelopes?

03-20-2008, 12:54 PM
KatieV - I hadn't thought about it - but yes it will take that much I'm sure for the returns - thanks!

03-20-2008, 01:28 PM

04-04-2008, 02:41 PM
Nice news after my move to know they got there!

04-04-2008, 04:46 PM
I have been eyeing this swap.

04-05-2008, 09:58 PM
OK. After many failed attempts and half attempts (as in half finished and I can't decide what they still need) cards, I stumbled upon a technique that I just had to try. Here are my finished cards. There are three of the landscapes and one of the Country Style...which was the only collage card that I attempted that I really liked enough to share. I am packaging them up and will mail them on Monday. BTW, thank you for all the members who helped me figure out how to put the fabric backs on them (I have an Art Discussion thread about this). The freezer paper worked a charm to use as a backing for the fabric through my printer. I even left the paper on when I stitched them to the card. Enjoy!

04-05-2008, 10:28 PM
lori.rn - come on you know want to join :)

stillatthetop - thanks for posting your cards to the thread - they are wonderful - love them!

04-06-2008, 01:02 AM
Ooops. Sorry. I keep forgetting that you guys are a day ahead of us.

04-06-2008, 01:39 AM
Please may I withdraw from this swap - I am sorry to do this, but I am just hating what I have been trying to do and have totally run out of creativity. I cannot send in what I am not completely happy with and I am running out of time (I need to allow 2 weeks for postage to reach you) so I will have to concede defeat. My sincere apologies.

04-07-2008, 06:15 PM
mine are heading off in today's mail

04-07-2008, 09:17 PM
Here is a preview of what I am working on. They will be mailed before the end of this week. There are buttons and beads to attach as well as the backing.

04-24-2008, 10:23 AM
I was in my early 20's :)

will get itraders done tonight - we got buckets of rain and whole lot lighting. The dogs and cats followed me everywhere I went last night - they don't care for the noise at all.

I am so excited ....got my eye on the mail man!!

04-30-2008, 10:22 PM
I got my gorgeous cards today, too. This is my first completed swap so I'm very excited. As a newbie to ATC trading, getting others cards has answered some questions for me and given me some good ideas. I wondered how others were finishing and backing their cards, so got some answers there. I hadn't thought about numbering the cards or doing a series. I'll start doing that now. Thanks so much to the talented and very inspiring artists who shared thier cards with me:


04-30-2008, 10:32 PM
thanks for posting your returns to the thread.

one thing I like to do, is keep a list on excel of all the cards I've done - just to see how many I've done - didn't start that right off but glad I started it when I did <G>

05-01-2008, 02:43 AM
Just a quick note to say my cards are here:
