Card Sketch #48 - cutout criss cross
I really enjoy doing criss cross cards and was playing around and came up with this cut out version. Card dimensions are 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
I used white cardstock as a starting point and layered on the designer paper. To give it more punch I matted it using the colors that were dominate in the dp. Using your craft knife and a ruler carefully cut out the bottom triangle and then add a coordinating piece of designer paper to the inside of the card.
I stamped the flowers using palette noir and colored them with my Tria alcohol markers. The marker colors were a pretty good match for the colors in the dp. I carefully cut out the flowers, added a white brad for the centers and adhered them with a pop up circle.
Inside, on the designer paper was the perfect spot to stamp the sentiment and I went with it! Simple, short and sweet!
