Paper Doll Marci - Winter @ Dies to Die for


Happy Friday everyone, it's the last Friday before Christmas wheeeeeee!!

Before I share my card for today I must apologise for the lack of promised candy, I was so busy with getting ready for Christmas this week that I just ran out of time, but it will be here on my blog tomorrow, that's my first job to do tomorrow morning as it's Saturday and I have no work. 

Today I'm sharing one of my last Christmas cards for the year, very soon I'll be switching to other stuff like Valentine's day and Spring cards.  I made this card for a friend who's a lover of all things slightly quirky, and I really think this stamp from La-La Land fits the bill. As usual links to products are at the end of the post.



I stamped my image with Versafine ink and coloured Marci in Distress Inks
Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Spun Sugar, Fired Brick (heart)
Hair: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy
Clothing: Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet, Tumbles Glass, Stormy Sky.


All papers were edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and hand stitched. I added lashings of Gesso to the finished creation


I tucked a little snowflake charm under the bow. The little mittens, hats and sock are a small die set from Whimsy, I couldn't find it in the store, but I'm sure Tracy would order it for you if you asked her nicely.

Well that's all from me today, but I'll see you tomorrow for that candy! :) xx
