Just a few Matryoshka

This years homemade Christmas Cards. Idea and template found Here.
I made it a little more complex by making the dolls different colors. I cut the paper strips to the correct size rectangle for each doll size. I glued the rectangles down to the plain white card stock. Two cards to a page (because I like to get every inch of use from my paper). I cut out the template and traced around it for each card. I drew faces in the circles of the template and scanned it back in and touched them up a bit. I printed them out 8 sets per sheet. Myra helped by gluing the faces on, after I cut them out. Myra then colored their hair and put blush on there cheeks. I then drew the knots for their kerchiefs.
Noah proudly rubber stamped the back of each large doll, to say "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas."
