Project of the week - Criss Cross Card

Hello, it’s my turn to host the project of the week.

This time around we are going to be revisiting an old favorite. The Criss Cross Card.

You will need the follow supplies:
Stamps, ink
(2) 4 ¼ x 11 pieces of cardstock in your choice of color
Patterned paper or your stamped design to decorate the outside with
(1)    3 ¾ X 5 ¼ cardstock for the insert – and any decorations
One 1 ½ x 12 for the belly band

Cut your two pieces of cardstock at a diagonal, then adhere then together.


Stamp your outside layers

I randomly stamped a piece of 8 ½ by 11 sheet with leaf stamps in different fall colors and then cut it apart as follows.

From these, I took the best of the lot and cut it down to work with the brown diagonals and the card insert.

Here is the belly band, which will need to be scored at approximately 5 5/8 and 11 1/4 .

I used one of the spare diagonals to cut out the sentiment for the outside of the belly band and to create the pull mechanism for the insert.

Here is what it looks like apart and then put together.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope this inspires you to create this oldlie but goodie card design.

I need to apologize for the off color photo's. I had to replace my USB cable for my little Nikon camera and it hasn't come yet. So, I had to use another camera and it was not cooperating!

I love how you created your own background paper withe little stamps! I'm not very good at that technique, but your pretty fall project inspires me to try again sometime!
