Criss Cross Card




Just Magnolia (62) - Criss Cross Card
Totally Papercrafts (23) - One For The Girlies

Well, here is a card that went wrong from start to finish... You won't believe how many times it has gone wrong, but I got there in the end.

I have not added a sentiment to the band as I'm not sure who will be getting it yet so will add it later. Also, as I wanted it to open and stand up on it's own so I have attached the image mat to the base card itself. The image has been coloured with Promarkers and cut out so that Tilda can 'sit' on the strip. I covered her wings with glitter glue and added some gems to the corners for added sparkle. The band going around the whole card just has ribbon and a punched flower with gem attached. One of my many mistakes was when I was cutting the design paper for the 'criss cross' pieces so now BOTH sides are decorated with the paper. I have kept the design very simple as I wanted Tilda to be the main focus. Hope you like it.
