I really enjoyed making a Criss Cross style card and I’ve become a little hooked on them!
I made this one with a Kaiser Craft paper pack and some shiny cardstock and dies. The edge was also punched with a Martha Stewart edge punch. Some eyelets give substance to the leather chord pull tab and a bit of glitter blings it up.
The sentiment is a Cling stamp and the back of the card has been embossed with a flowers embossing folder. Because this card is two sections glued together at the back, I actually embossed both sections of the back of the card and it shows the raised embossing on both the inside and the outside of the back.
This time I did the band with solid coloured cardstock (my last one was made with acetate), and I’ve wrapped it with some leafy ribbon – Using It Up – it’s the last of my stash of this ribbon. The flower is also sitting on some recycled florist hessian that was on some flowers I got recently. (gotta love a husband who gives flowers for no reason at all!) I’ve folded it over and stuck down. I really like the natural look it gave.
I hope you enjoyed looking at this card and that perhaps it gives you some inspiration, coz that’s what this blogging thang is all about – inspiring each other!
This card suits the following challenges
Thanks for stopping by, i’ll be back with more before the end of the week so keep an eye out for some Valentines inspiration
Cheers, Vicki xx
