Criss Cross Card

Good Morning!!! I created todays card for this weeks Fancy Fold Challenge here at The Rubber Cafe. I have always loved this little Criss Cross Card and was so glad for a chance to make it again. I  used two seperate stamps for my card today. Just my type and Hooked on You. My dp is October Afternoon.


So here are the quick instructions for this fun little card. What is fun also is to stick alittle treat behind the insert panel. I have put tea bags, hot cocoa packs, candy bar....ect.

Materials:

2- 4 1/4 x 11 Cardstock for base
1- 4 x 5 piece of double sided patterned paper
1- 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 piece of cardstock for insert
1- 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 piece of neutral cardstock for insert
1- 1 1/2 x 12 piece of colored cardstock for band

*Score both the 4 1/4 x 11 pieces at 5 1/2
* Take one scored piece and cut diagnally from center to bottom left
* Take next scored piece and cut diagnally from center to bottom right.
* Add adhesive to the rectangle back of one piece of cardstock Glue both cardstocks together making sure long pieces of diagnal are on bottom
* Cut patterened paper in half at diagnal.
* Glue to front of card
* With tape runner glue both flaps down to center at the bottom to form a  pocket.
*Take insert pieces and round the corners if you choose to.
* Decorate insert and then glue both insert pieces together. Neutral on top.
* Score the band piece at 5 5/8 x 11 1/4 and wrap around the card and glue together. You can decorate the front of this also if you choose to.

I hope you were able to follow. If not you can find the directions that I follow on SCS in the resources section under Criss Cross Card.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend.
