Trisha’s sweet Dollface card!Katie Heron
Hello everyone! I hope you all love the Folksy Charm collection as much as I do…I had so much fun making the samples for the launch shows. I made this ‘Hello Dollface’ card using the new collection, and also used some of the Slot & Spin Vintage Frames dies. See below for steps on how to make this card!
First, I took a sheet of turquoise-shaded card from the Ocean Mist A4 Gradients card pack, and the largest doll die from the Folksy Charm Dolls die set. Folding the card in half, I placed the large doll die slightly over the fold – where the straight line is on the middle of the doll die. I lightly taped this down before running through my die cutting machine, to stop the die from moving.
Taking the large doll die accessories of the head scarf, hair, base of the doll and bow, I die-cut all of the pieces. The head scarf and base of the doll are cut from the 8×8 Folksy Charm paper pack. There are such wonderful papers to choose from! I also cut the hair out from one of the papers too.
I stamped the face using the coordinating Folksy Charm A4 Photopolymer stamp set and coloured the eyes in, applying a white gel pen to the spot on both of the pupils. I stamped the cheeks on to the face using a pale pink ink before using the freckles stamp with a light red ink. To finish the face, I took a deeper pink ink pad and used a glue applicator to apply ink to the lips. The applicator gives a delicate touch for the lips.
Next I lined up the hair scarf, base of the doll and bow die cuts on to the body of the doll to check the positions fit before die-cutting my Slot & Spin aperture on the body. I placed the die just under the bow of the doll. I also die-cut the spinning frame and heart shape to fit inside the aperture.
Next, I stamped the large decorative body pattern on to the body of the doll. I chose two of the sentiment stamps “Hello” and “Dollface” and stamped them in dark blue below where I had die cut the Slot and Spin die.
I then used some more of the detail stamps to decorate the head scarf, bow, hair and flower before sticking down all the elements on to the body of the doll using a little tacky PVA glue. Finally, I connected the Slot & Spin elements into the centre of the doll’s body to complete the card.
I hope you like my card design, have fun making your own!
