The Mad Hatter

When I was eight, we had a fancy hat competition at school. My mother insisted on sending me in a top hat with a 10/6 price tag and I won third prize. OK, I've said it before, I was a weird kid - it was fairly appropriate to turn me into the Mad Hatter, especially when you consider my name is Maddy! I've been a fan of Alice in Wonderland ever since.

"The Mad Hatter"

This original vintage Mad Hatter image is from the Graphics Fairy.  The background stamping uses a Hero Arts stamp with distress inks, and the other bits and pieces are from Papermania's Persimmon collection.

"Mad Hatter 'Fridge Magnet"

The image is unaltered except for the addition of a little colour with promarkers. The frame was enamelled by triple embossing. A piece of magnetic sheet was fixed behind the frame, and some steel card stuck to the card to attach the fridge magnet to the front.


  1. Great card, the enamelled frame is fab ! x

  2. Well I can certainly confirm how amazing this is as I have the Mad Hatter Magnet on my fridge as we type!! It is amazing, I love it. And I played the Mad Hatter and the March Hare in our primary school play!! So it suits me very well. Lee x

  3. Love this card takes me back to my childhood. Alison xxx
