Criss Cross Christmas

One of the latest crazes is doing these Criss Cross layouts for cards. They are cute - aren't they? This layout really allows for wonderful showcasing of the Fabulous SU! Double-Sided Designer Series Papers(DSP). I actually call this one a "faux" criss cross - because I used less card stock than the original directions called for, and compensated for the slight differences by making the insert smaller. This pic shows the insert pulled out, so you can see it. Stamp Sets: Merry & Bright (Holiday Mini pg. 15) & Flaky Friends (Fall/Winter Collection pg. 42). CardStock: Real Red, Brocade Blue, Wild Wasabi, More Mustard & Whisper White. Ink: Whisper White Craft, Real Red, More Mustard & Basic Black. Accessories: Primary Colors Simply Scrappin' Kit, Signo White Gel Pen, Scallop circle Punch, 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" Circle Punches, Round Tab Punch & Earth Element Brads.
Tip: The Criss Cross layout is a GREAT way to use up those leftover pieces of Designer Series Paper! Go stamp - and let me know what you came up with!
