Do you like paper dolls? Retired Stampin' Up card

 Maybe you are like me; you loved dolls and paper dolls when you were a girl....and still love them as an adult!  So of course, I have to check out new paper dolls and dolls (I bet you have a collection too, like me)!!  Have you seen these new paper doll stamps - Prima?  I just couldn't help it and had to buy some.  

We tried them out in the stamping group I am in last night.  It was a great opportunity to use some of my retired Stampin' Up items:  pastels, designer paper, ribbon, and flower trim.  Here's my card, and the stamp I used - they are larger than the standard card size so it was a little tricky to do.  Did you know you can use your diecut machine's acrylic blocks to mount a stamp on? 
 Here is a closeup of my paper doll's head.

I sized the card so it would fit inside a long envelope; that will make the post office happy and save me $$ when I mail it. 

I sure had fun looking up other designer's paper doll cards and even found pictures of some of the paper dolls I used to play with!   I had three sisters who were younger than me, so they inherited playing with those paper dolls!  I remember a Shirley Temple paper doll I had and a set called Candy and her Cousins that were some of my favorite.  And since my sister and I took ballet, we always had ballet paper dolls and coloring books!  What were your favorite paper dolls?
