As soon as I saw this sweet stamp set and thin cuts I HAD to have it.  I love paper dolls for cards, layouts and journalling books.  This particular set is Christmas themed but I wanted to show you that you could make it work for most themes.
I first cut out the dolls using white daisy cardstock.  Here you can see the plates I used in my Cuttlebug.  I used the A plate, 2 B plates and the new magnetic plates that helps keep the thinlets in place on the paper.
Here I used the Adventure Fundamental Paper Packet to cut out the dresses.  I also used tangerine cardstock for the Halloween themed card.
CARD #1 Halloween
CARD #2 Birthday
CARD #3 General card for a friend
As you can see  these 3 cards are distinctly NOT Christmas.  I hope this will give you some other ideas on ways to use this great stamp and thin cut set.
