Here is my last card for last weekend’s VSN. It was for the X marks the spot challenge where we were supposed to create a Criss-Cross Card.

For my sample I used a little image from Tiny Wishes from Penny Black. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers ( Leaves: YG01, YG03, YG17     Flowers: Y13, Y15, Y17, E97, E99, E25 RV000, RV10, RV21      Mouse: E30, E31, E33, E35, R00, R01      Ground: E11, E13, E15, E18      Sky: B0000, B000, B01 ). The image was adhered to a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock, cut and embossed with a scallop oval Nestabilities die.

The Criss-Cross Card base was created out of Kraft cardstock. White cardstock was layered with Pebbles Happy Go Lucky Paper. The strips were adhered around the card and May Arts Organdy Ribbon was tied around it. The image was adhered to the card front with dimensionals.

The card insert is a 3 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Solar White cardstock. a 1 3/8″ strip of Pebbles paper. The orange paper was cut with a small Circle Nestabilities die and layered on a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock cut and embossed with a scallop circle Nestabilities die. The circles were adhered over to the center top of the insert and part of it was cut off. A Basic Grey button was stitched to the center of the circles with Honeydew Twine.

A sentiment from the Tiny Wishes set was stamped on the upper right hand side of the strip with Jet Black Archival ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
