Family Criss-Cross Card

Hello Rubber Cafe' Fans!

Kristine here today with my first card that I made with the November Kit of the Month Club from, The Rubber Cafe'.   
This month's kit called Love Makes You a Family!  

The kit includes Echo Park's 6x6 pad- The Story of Our Family by Designer Lori Whitlock, and tons of amazing ribbons and mini Distress Inks!  

For today I used the stamps from the Creative Cafe' Kit, Family Tree stamp set, and the add on set Home Sweet Home.

And my fun fold card today is a criss cross card!

To create this card I started by cutting an 8 1/2" x 11" panel of yellow cardstock in half length wise.
Then I scored both halves at 5 1/2".
I cut one corner off each of the panels as shown below.

I adhered the panels together and then adhered a panel of 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" patterned paper to the center of the card with Scrap Happy Glue.

I added a strip of Scor-Tape to the bottom of each of the side panels.

Cut across a 4" x 5 1/4" from corner to corner.

Remove the paper protecting the scor tape and fold over the right side of the card.

Repeat on the left side.

Tie ribbon around the bottom portion of the card.
Stamp image on a white die cut oval and back with a teal scallop edge oval panel before adhering to card.
Color image with colored pencils.
Create the clouds with Peacock Feather's Distress Ink.
Adhere to card front.

Create the inside panel.
The outer blue panel is 5 1/4' x 3 3/4"
The patterned paper panel is 5 1/8" x 3 5/8"
The image panel is 2 3/4" x 4 1/4"

I colored the image with colored pencils and sponged distress ink around the edges.
Then it's ready to put in the previous piece you made!

This is a fun fold card that everyone in your family would love to get.

I hope you enjoyed today's card.

Check back every day to see all the amazing projects by the rest of the team!
