Card Tutorial: Dress Up a Paper Doll

4th of July, U.S.A. Independence Day is less than a month away and there's glorious red, white and blue starting to adorn almost every corner around here. That has become the inspiration for today's card. So, here it is - a paper doll dressed up in patriotic colors. The best part? You can dress up paper dolls not only to create a card, but matching centerpiece, party decor, party favor... you name it! 

I used products from Richard Garay for this card. Here's the list of supplies for you to get started. Some are affiliate links.
Silk Lusters - Cool Caribbean
                    - Gold
                    - Rose Chintz
Whipped Cream Cardstock
Coloring pencils

Diecut the doll parts out of Whipped Cream cardstock using The Patriot die and Amaze machine.
Attach the parts together to make the doll. Color the doll as shown using color pencils.
Trim Whipped Cream cardstock to 8.5" x 5.5" and fold in half to make a 4.5" x 5.5" card.
Splatter Cool Caribbean And Raw Gold Silks to the card base.
Attach the patriot to the card with foam squares for a little dimension. 

Draw a base for the patriot to stand on. Use the brush from the Rose Chintz Silk bottle to color the base.
Write the sentiment with that same brush. You could use paint or marker for this step if you like.
While you are it, splatter a little Rose Chintz Silk to the card making sure not to splatter on the patriot.
And that's your finished card!

I hope you enjoyed!
