Criss Cross Christmas!

Lookie! Lookie! What I made at my Demo meeting! :)

I was so thrilled when I got there and my upline had a card for us to make.
She wanted us to use/try the spritzer from SU!
That's what we used on the wrapped panel and the insert.
The colors are cherry cobbler, old olive, very vanilla and the jolly holiday dsp.

Here's a couple pics of the elements of the card.

This is a criss cross card. It's made with 2 ~ 4.25"x5.5" card bases (cut tall). Then you cut the front of each base on the diagonal. Adhere the two back bases on top on each other. The dsp piece is cut slightly smaller than a regular card front then cut on the diagonal and adhered to the 2 diagonal front pieces. So the insert won't fall out, adhere the two front pieces together then at the bottom of the card base.

Being the simple crafter I am, I would have been happy with this criss cross base and the insert, but I have a wonderful upline that goes the extra we added this wrapped panel! I thought it was an excellent touch!

I love the look the spritzer gives. I just might have to get this on my next order. :)

I hope you're having a great weekend!
Thanks for stopping by

Until next time...

Wow, Melina! This is beautiful! What gorgeous colors (the ones I'm using to send to Carol, lol!) You've done a wonderful job! This is one of my favorite folds of all time - it's so versatile - wow, you are a card ready for the holidays now! :)
