Glue a 5”x5” Nostalgia striped paper ¼” from the bottom and side edges. Glue a 5”x4” Nostalgia turquoise/peach floral paper on top, overlapping the stripes and ¼” from the top and side edges. Place a Turquoise Jewel Border Dazzles™ at the top and bottom of the Nostalgia floral paper. Cut a 2½”x4” Nostalgia turquoise paper and cut a “V” into one short side. Glue on the bottom right side, ½” from the right edge.

Stamp the dress part of the stamp on Nostalgia yellow dot and Nostalgia turquoise, Stamp the feet part of the stamp on Nostalgia brown. Cut the dress from the yellow dot paper. Cut the belt from the turquoise paper, and the shoes from the brown paper. Glue the pieces to their matching places on the doll stamp.
  3. Stamp the doll head in glue ink, onto Moka suede paper. Dust with ZING! blush embossing powder. Tap off the excess and heat emboss. Cut close to the stamped edge. Glue to the doll head.
