Paper Dolls

The Spellbinders Small Die of the Month club for January was the cutest couple of dolls. The set contains 21 dies and allows for a lot of customization of the dolls. Due to a glitch, I only received mine a few days ago. So now I had to play.

For this card I did not do any customization on the dolls other than choosing the color of their outfits. I cut the faces, arms and the little girl’s legs from cream colored cardstock. Each one got slightly different color hair. The hair die not only cuts out the hair, but also embosses texture into it – very cool.

The little girl got a floral dress cut from some patterned paper with coordinating frill, sleeves and collar and she got braids in her hair. The little boy got jeans and a blue shirt. I die cut all the pieces and then glued all the pieces together except for the arms. I wanted to be sure that they were holding hands on my card, so I needed to position the arms correctly. I stamped the sentiment onto the balloon with Versamark ink and white heat embossed it.

I ran the front of my cardbase through my embossing machine with a Darice heart embossing folder. Then I glued the couple onto the front of the card with the string and the balloon behind them, grounding them with a piece of washi tape (I had got this inspiration from Carole over at Craftilicious Creations). I completed the card by adding little red punched out hearts to a few of the embossed hearts, liberal Wink of Stella to the big balloon and a sparkle of white gel pen to their eyes.
