MFT Teasers - Pure Innocence Paper Dolls

Happy Monday!  Hope you're having a wonderful start to 2012!  Today is Pure Innocence teaser day - one of my favorite MFT teaser days.  We have 6 fabulous new sets this month and I've chosen Paper Dolls to share with you.

I paired this sweet girl up with some Basic Grey Picadilly papers and coloured her up with my copics.  I used Y13, Y15, and Y18 for her dress on X-Press It blending cardstock.  I cut her out and mounted her on a square panel that's part of a layout from this month's Dirty Dozen sketch over at Splitcoast.  I added a border cut with the new Paper Doll Border Die-namics and I also used the same die to cut my yellow panel so that I could feature the negative portion of the die as well.  In order to not fully cut the paper on the right side, I used a thick chipboard shim (which the die was not able to cut through in my Cuttlebug - this may not work in a machine with better pressure like the BigShot or the Vagabond) to stop the die from cutting after the 7th doll.  


Here's a close up showing you how I used the negative portion of the die on this panel.  



And here you can see the Paper Doll border die peeking out from behind the orange panel.
