Yet another ATC for the French-theme swap. This one took me a LONG time and I’ll likely not be making another one like it soon! Thank goodness for this little girl image from Stampin’ Up!’s Everyday Celebrations. My husband detests this image (and anything I put her on) for some reason so that means I don’t have to make a duplicate for him *sneaky grin*. I first found out that he didn’t like her ’cause I was going to put her on his Amour book. He saw her there on one of the pages and pleaded for me to take her off. *laugh* Ever since then I’ve been using her a LOT. Alas, this won’t work for long because I’ve put her on so many things that he’s starting to think she’s okay.
I drew the little butterfly at the top to match her. Those are stamped commas on the butterfly’s wings, from one of Stampendous’ clear stamp alphabet sets.
The word “amitié” means “friendship” and is from Stampin’ Up!’s French version of A Light Heart. The oval frame is from The Angel Company’s Hip Hardware set. The rest of the words mean “a friend is someone who says pretty things behind your back” and are from Stampin’ Up!’s French version of That’s Nice. The underlying paisleys are from Technique Tuesday’s Masterpieces of Paisley. The intricate swirls on the bottom layer is a crown stamp (stamped four times) by Fontwerks. The stitches at the edges of the top panel are from Technique Tuesday’s Frayed Ends.
