Kick Up Your Heels

Hi There!  

Today I have a pretty Criss Cross card to share with you that I made with the March Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month-Friends Make the best Accesories In addition to the Friends make the best Accesories Creative Cafe' Kit, I used the add on stamp set, Botique Chic, Scor TapeScrap Happy Glue, memento ink, copic markers, and Spellbinders Dies.

Here is my Criss Cross card that I made with this months adorable kit.

To create this card begin by cutting one of the 8 1/2" x 11" pieces of brown cardstock in half lengthwise.

Score each of the panels at 5 1/2" and then trim across one side of the panel diagonally as shown in the picture below.

Adhere Scor Tape to the rectangle portion of one of the panels as shown below.

Adhere the second panel to the first panel as shown below.

Trim a piece of patterned paper from the kit to 4" x 5 1/4" and then cut in half diagonally.

When you flip over the top panel you will end up with these two pieces of paper which you may now adhere to the brown card base with Scrap Happy Glue.

Adhere a strip of Scor Tape to the bottom of the center panel of the card base and fold over the right panel of the card.

Add a piece of Scor Tape to the bottom of the card base and fold over the left panel.

This is how your card should look at this point.

The next step is to finish decorating the front.  
Adhere a 1" x 4 1/8" strip of green patterned paper to a 1 1/2" x 4 1/8' panel of pink patterned paper.  Remove the orange sticker strip from the sticker sheet that comes in the kit.  Cut it in half and adhere to the strip as shown below.  

I colored the flowers with a pink Tombow Pen and spritz with water.

Stamp the shoe and sentiment on a vanilla die cut circle and color the shoe with R21-R23-R25 Copic Markers.  Adhere circle panel to a larger brown die cut scallop circle and then a larger pink scallop circle.

Adhere the flowers to the circle panel and then adhere to the prepared panel.

Ahere entire panel to the front of the Criss Cross Card.

To create the inside panel. Stamp the images and sentiment on a 3 1/2" x 5" vanilla panel.

Adhere the panel to a 3 3/4" x 5" pink panel and then color images.

Fold one of the tags from the kit in half and adhere to the panel with Scrap Happy Glue.
Add a pink gem to cover the circle on the tag.

Insert panel into the card base
