Prima Doll

I fell in love with the Prima dolls as soon as I saw them .  They bring back memories of my childhood of getting my weekly mag and cutting out the paper doll with her clothes that had little tabs on so you could dress her up !!   Boy they were the days !!

Plus as you know I love paper piecing, so her is my first card with a Prima Doll and I've made a tag shaped christmas card.

Now I will admit things didn't go to green crackle paint went pink ,  think I should have primed my card first, but hay ho just went with it !!

The sparkle doesn't show up, but the tress and Jingle Bells have been covered with stickles and the berries on the dolls dress. I've also used frantage chunky white embossing enamel which makes great snow and die cut the flowers and leaves.

Hi Diane, love your Christmas dolly! I loved playing with them as a child too, these remind me so much of that time. I have a different one, and once I started dressing her up, I couldn't stop making cards with her lol. xxx
