A Fun New Card!

I've been wanting to do some different folds, and decided that today was the day! I was inspired by Cambria's blog to do a Criss-Cross card...isn't it cute?! You can see Beate's tutorial here. It was amazingly easy!


I got to use some more of my yummy Gretel Paper from Verve, my sewing machine, and some really pretty cardstock that Julee sent me to play with. It's cranberry-ish color, but It's shimmery, like the pearlized white and cream!! Soooo yummy.

Here's what the inside looks like. I stamped off the flourish (from Inkadinkado) twice in Bravo Burgundy before I stamped it on the Pearlized Cream cardstock. The sentiment is from the All Holidays set, and I stamped it in Palette Hybrid Burnt Umber, stamped off, and then did a drop shadow. The little starbursts are from the Fancy Florals set. I added a tab of the Gretel paper, a couple primas, and tied a ribbon around the outside part. Fun, huh? I am feeling very accomplished.

Hope yall had a great weekend, back to work tomorrow!

Stamps: All Holidays (SU!), Flourish (Inkadinkado), Fancy Florals (Verve Visual)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Bravo Burgundy, Palette Hybrid Burnt Umber
Cardstock: Pearlized Cardstock (Cream & Cranberry), Chocolate Chip, Gretel Double sided paper from Cosmo Cricket
