Looks Like It Somebody’s Birthday

I have enjoyed making various look alike cards over the years, they are so much fun and are always well received. I previously have used Quickutz, Tattered Lace and Sizzix doll dies. More recently I treated myself to a number of the Studio Light Missees Die and stamp sets. They are awesome. There are dies to cut basic shapes for heads, torsos, clothes and accessories and lots of stamps to add the characters faces, with lots of different expressions. Mixing and matching the various sets means the possibilities are endless. Admittedly I have bought all the available sets to give me maximum options for designs including the two male versions. Like lots of my crafty stash, they sat there for a while without being used but they are gradually making more of an appearance in my crafting. Here are two cards I’ve made using them, one for my friend who’s the landlady of our local pub and one for my sister who is a fellow crafter and artist. I’ve used my favourite card fold the box easel card as it really showcases these well.
