Criss-Cross Card…Have you made one?

27 Sep


I saw this card pattern awhile ago and really wanted to try it.

I was very excited when I saw that our challenge this week was for this type of card!

For this Criss Cross card, I used this tutorial.

I was amazed at how easy it was to make.

For this card I used the following Sweet Stamps:

Triple Tulips


My paper is from Authentique Paper. I am convinced they might be the best paper company ever!  Be sure to see my tutorial HERE as to why I think this and HOW I made my paper border.



Have you ever just pierced your paper for a nice effect?

Pierce the holes and put some dimensional foam between the pierced paper and the layer underneath to show off the piercing.

Here is the card all put back together with the insert slightly lifted out, so you can see how this card works.

I encourage you to join our challenge here:

The Criss Cross card is amazingly simple and very satisfying to make.

You can win a $20.00 gift cert. to the Sweet Stamps store, so what are you waiting for???

This has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today’s Sweet Stamps challenge card!
