Japanese Doll

A black, red and white card for AnnaBelle Stamps and Secret Crafter Saturday, paper pieced for CAS-ual Fridays and using scraps for Repeat Impressions at The House That Stamps Built. Almost everything on this card is scraps except for the card base itself.  The embossed front is a reject from a project where I tried to unsuccessfully punch through two layers of a card base and the rest is made from scraps of paper and cardstock.  This is the first paper piecing I have attempted, which is probably obvious as the only piece on the whole card is crooked.


Supplies:  white cardstock, red dp from a cre8tiv mini stack, black dp from Kaisercraft After Five Collection, Memento Black Tuxedo ink, foam tape, ds tap.

Tools:  Sizzix Big Shot, Craft Concepts Budding Vine embossing folder, Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Ovals dies, Hero Arts Japanese Doll stamp, sentiment stamp from AnnaBelle Stamps Sentimental Bluebells set, Fiskars border punch, scissors.
