Eskimo Doll from Cookie Cutter Christmas Set

This is a fun fold that ends up notecard sized at 3 1/2 x 4 1/2.    This is one of my favorite sets as it includes a punch.   The full instructions are in the tab Ideas, Projects and Free Things.  

Cut and score the Thick Whisper White 10 x 3 ½, score at 3 ½ and 8

Stamp and punch the 3 Eskimo Dolls (or the Santa or Gingerbread man or Reindeer) and with markers color in the doll

One option for the greeting is to use just the top line “warm heartfelt greetings” so it’s just a regular greeting instead of a Christmas card.  

To do this make sure your stamp is clean, the mask the lower part of the greeting with a post it note (left photo), then ink the stamp (middle photo), then be sure to remove the post it note (yup sometimes I forget J) and stamp the greeting (right photo).  Now it’s just a regular greeting instead of a Christmas card.  

Back to the card.  Adhere the doll with a dimensional at the back of her head

Add either dazzling diamonds or mica flakes - tomorrow I'll post more on the differences and give you some close up photos.  Stamp some snowflakes on the front of the card along with the first part of the sentiment "cold hands".   I used Soft Sky Ink.  

Let me know if you have questions - thanks for stopping by!
