Criss Cross

Can you all believe it is November already? Wow, this year has just flown by me. Won't be long and the snow will be flying here in MN. And Christmas isn't far away.

I found and easier way and a less expensive way of making the Criss Cross card so had to try one. This one only takes a 1/2 sheet of cs instead of a whole one. I like that much better and is so much easier on the budget don't ya think?
So without further ado here is Joyce's blog that has the tutorial on it for making this inexpensive way of making this card. Follow these directions and you can make a card like mine shared here. They really are simple to do. Thanks Joyce for making a tutorial on this and making it so easy to follow.
For my card I used Lavender Lace although it looks darker in the scan. I think I need to adjust the colors on my scanner to SU colors. On the scan it looks more like Lovely Lilac which would have worked also I guess. The part that pulls out is Basic Black and has Very Vanilla layered on that.
The designer paper I bought some time ago and don't know where I got it or when. LOL, must be getting old my memory fails me sometimes. Anyway on the side of it, it said Hydrangea's. And what pretty paper it is. I just love the colors. If you noticed I used this paper for the card before this one. I only have scraps left now. :(
Stamp set used is a retired one again. I have a few angel stamps and love using them. This one worked perfect for this card. I love the angel at the top of the inside piece. The set is called Renaissance Angels. Image was stamped in Basic Black and colored in with chalks. The verse also stamped in Basic Black.
I used the tab punch to punch the tab this also was done with the designer paper. You use the tab to pull the message out of the criss cross.
Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
