Be Merry for Paper Nest Dolls New Release!

Hello friends!  I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend!  I was busy making “treats” for my husband to content him for the week!  LOL!  Speaking of treats, Paper Nest Dolls has a brand new mid-month release and it’s full of ADORABLE images!

As a matter of fact, I’ve made a card with one of them here and it’s my very first Christmas card of the year!


Isn’t she so sweet?!  This one is called “Elf with Jack-n- Box” and she is available from the store.

I thought this “elf” needed to be colored up in green and so I found some fun papers to compliment her along with a sparkly silver glitter strip of cardstock, and added some seam binding, twine with button and festive embellishments too!

Everything was mounted onto a 5×5 white top folding card base.


Here’s a closer look at how I’ve colored her in with my Copic markers.  I’ve used some gel pens to color in parts of the “Jack in the Box” as well.  I’ve cut her out with a stitched rectangle die and white heat embossed the sentiment over a strip of red cardstock and I cut out and attached along the side of the image panel and then I used some white ink to sponge around all the edges.  I’ve added some rhinestones on the sentiment strip and then I popped up the image panel with some craft foam before attaching it onto my card.


I hope you’ve enjoyed my festive card today!

Thank you so much for stopping in today and I’ll see you soon!

  3. Paper Nest has such cute images and I adore the way you colored her, Vicki! Great polka dot paper choice and the silver sparkly paper is fab. While I’m here, I’ll put on a DT hat and say thanks for supporting our Anything Goes challenge over at QKR Stampede this week. Good Luck.
