Naughty or Nice Nutting Doll Christmas Card

Today I am up on the Leaky Shed Studio blog with my first Design Team project as part of their new Design Team. We were given the amazing Julie Nutting Chipboard Dolls to create with for our first assignment and I had so much fun "dressing up" these dolls. My card here was created using the Naughty or Nice Doll and paper from the BoBunny Silver & Gold collection.

The chipboard dolls I worked with are just 4" tall! They also have them in an 8" version to play with.

I painted every piece of the chipboard doll with acrylic paint.

Filling in all the little spaces required a steady hand and very fine tipped paint brush!

After I had the doll colored in as I wanted, I added this super cool product to the fur edge on her dress and hat...Snow Writer by DecoArt. It gives it a fun, faux snow look. While it was still wet I then added a little bit of glitter for some extra shimmer and shine.

Because it took me quite some time to do all of the painting to decorate the Nutting Doll, so I decided to keep the card that I placed her on very simple. The overall finished card size is 6.5" x 4.5", which is larger than standard size, but I will most likely be giving these in person instead of mailing them.
