My First Criss-Cross Card......

Over at Splitcoast stampers they have a tutorial for making these criss-cross cards, so I thought I would have a go.

This is what I came up with for my first attempt....

I used some lilac cardstock for my base card. The patterned paper was from a dovecraft paper pack from the range. I used a 2" scalloped circle punch to go behind the embossed circle which is a cuttlebug mini embossing folder - Winter Jelly.

For the insert, I also used the lilac cardstock and added some white. I used the corner rounders for the corners and stamped the hero art snowflake border across the top. The greeting and igloo are from a sentiments exactly clear stamp set, stamped in pixie pink and lovely lilac stampin up ink. I used the round tab punch and added a snowflake brad to finish it off.

Have a look at the gallery at splitcoaststampers for some fantastic cards using this layout, they are fab:-)

Have a great day,
Jenny:-) xx
