Criss Cross Card

This stunning congratulations card will be certainly noticed. In this time of the year when nature is blooming I really like making cards which also bloom. In this card I've used some best seller dies from Sizzix, all of them designed by Tim Holtz.


This is called Criss Cross Card. You need two square cards. Take one card and cut it diagonally from center top to the bottom left. Take the other piece and cut it diagonally from the center top to the bottom right. Add adhesive to the square back of one of the card stock pieces and attach pieces together. Attach patterned papers to the square inside and to the triangles.

 Use adhesive tape to the bottom of the middle panel, as well on the bottom of the triangle flaps that will be on top of the card. Tape the card base together as a pocket.

Tag Inside of the Criss Cross Card is cut with Movers & Shapers Die - Tag & Bookplates (656938) and the letters with Decorative Strip Die - Upon A Time (656916).

I love making flowers. This Bigz Die - Tattered Florals (656640) is so beautiful and it goes so well together with Bigz Die - Tattered Leaves (656927). I used two kinds of patterned papers to this flower, I inked the edges with Distress Ink (Mustard Seed) and used some Yellow Stickles Glitter glue. Flowers are bend and wrinkled by hand and attached to each other with 3D adhesive squares. The leaves are also inked with Distress (Peeled Paint) and decorated also with Lime Green Stickles.

The Bigz Die - Elegant Flourish (656639) makes the final touch in to this card.
