Matryoshka Dolls!


Happy Wednesday!  It's my turn to post over on the Peachy Keen Stamps blog, and I have a very fun card to share.  A few weeks ago Peachy Keen Stamps offered an epic sale on their face stamp sets, so I thought some of you might be wondering what to do with your new stamp sets.  Face stamps are such an easy way to personalize and peach-ify your die cuts.  I created this cute little Matryoshka shaped card and added an adorable Princess Face...but it's what's inside that makes this card extra special!
I created a little pocket for the "baby" dolls.  So...your lucky recipient will receive 5 adorable little dolls and you have LOTS of room to write a note!  I created the pocket using my Silhouette software, but of course you could create something similar using the Cricut design software.  Here's what mine looked like on the screen:
I used the offset function to create a tiny little "ring" to add more dimension to my pocket.  The extra layers provided a bit more strength and the dolls fit inside perfectly.  I did snip off the top once they were cut out, but if you are a whiz with the software - you could obviously do alter the shape prior to cutting.  You could even skip that step entirely and use dimensional foam stickers.
Here's one more look at my little family of dolls.  The face assortment makes it soo easy to have cute faces - no matter what size your die cut is.
