Have you fallen in love with the new Clear & Simple line: Rag Dolls? I absolutely adore them and have so much fun each time I pull them out. I decided to make a set of coffee themed treats... perfect to leave on a favorite teacher's desk, as a morning treat for your coffee lovin' co-worker, or as a sweet way to spoil a neighbor.
The Rag Doll: House die-cut is a perfect fit for the Party Favor 3 treat box. I stamped the Rag Doll: Shop onto a house cut from cream cardstock. I added the sign and stack of cups. Then I stamped the shop image again onto patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Emma's Shoppe collection and pieced the awning and stand... trimming out the window to show off my cafe scene. The coffee cup is disposable so I kept it simple and added a paper wrap with a jute band. Blooms created with the Build-A-Flower die were a quick and easy addition.
For my card I let Carlie shine. She is just too cute leaning up against "hello". I love that many of the Rag Dolls come as a combo set of stamps and a coordinating die to perfectly "trim" their silhouette. Paper piecing the clothes but coloring the skin and hair is a fun way to create cohesion and not stress too much about perfect coloring. ;) (see my supply list for Copic colors) I added a small strip of woodgrain and a scallop across the top to mimic the cafe awning. I hope you love her as much as I do!
