Paper Doll

Hi!  Sorry for my long absence - I've been on holiday and there was NO internet connection at all! And no phone, no TV... bliss! ;)
Anyway... so when I was a little girl I used to LOVE paper dolls. I really loved cutting them out, dressing them up, and those sweet little flaps to secure the clothes in place...
So guess how happy I was when I saw Hero Arts latest digikit... a whole Paper Dolls Digikit! I mean how cute can you get???
So I got to it, and made a card I'd have liked to receive as a kid.

I put the doll and clothes into a little acetate pocket that I stitched to the paper. The clothes were all printed onto papers from Echo Park's Sweet Day digikit.

I have another card to share with this kit - back soon!

What a fabulous card! Great stitching, too. I used to enjoy playing with paper dolls as a youngster also. They never go out of style.

I made a card with a similar kit last year here but mine was so fiddly to construct, I might have a go at your way instead!
