Mini CRISS-CROSS Cards




If you are into the latest and greatest of cards, then you already know about the Criss-Cross card. Beate of Fresh & Fun posted a tutorial for making this kind of card a few weeks ago and now I see them everywhere. Most the time I am shy about trying new techniques. My best friend Laurie, Stamping for God's Glory, is always the first in town to try them out. I usually wait for her to give it a whirl and then she'll teach me what to do at her technique class. It's a beautiful thing. :-) Anyhow, I saw her criss-cross creation and fell in love. The design is beautiful and the papers with stamps she choose were amazing. One thing Laurie mentioned about making the criss-cross card is the amount of paper it takes. How could I use less paper with this design? Make it smaller! So here it is a MINI-Criss-Cross card (approximately one half the size of the original).

CARD DETAILS:
The Angel Company Stamps
Lasting Impressions Uptown Vine and Pinstripe Papers
Palette Ink
Prima Flowers
Brad
Vintage Button
Ribbons
