ABC X’ing – Criss Cross Card


Our challenge to you at ABC this fortnight is to create a Criss Cross card. If you need a tutorial on this you can find one here on Julie’s blog.

I must apologise in advance for the photographs, but the image had quite a bit of glitter added to it and it wouldn’t show up under normal light, and under the flash it has washed out the image somewhat, and the other pics the background is too yellow.


I have used a LOTV stamp and coloured it with copics. The papers are from First Edition and the lovely diecuts are the new Labels One Decorative dies from spellbinders, which I used both inside on the insert and out behind the image. Flowers from my stash.

ABC X No Insert

The pic above is the card, minus the insert. If you were trying to cut down on bulk I would recommend not covering the inside of the card, as the insert will cover it anyway and I did find this to be a very heavy card when it was completed.
