Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. Today I have a Criss-Cross card for you. I saw one by Leena Girsa on Instagram and I loved the look of it. I haven’t made one of these in years!! Guess what? It’s so simple and so much fun to do. I will be doing a video on it next Thursday in my Prime Time group. This card will also be a part of the monthly lineup for Virtual Coffee and a Card class in July. Let’s take a look.
The you’re a Peach designer series paper lends itself perfectly to this style of card because the patterns coordinate so beautifully together. I think I may have fallen in love with the criss-cross card.
Here you can see what the insert inside looks like. Of course you could stamp the inside with another sentiment and more peaches but I left it plain with just a 1/4″ by 5 1/4″ strip of patterned paper. If you make a criss-cross card, I would love to see your creation!
How Does it Work??
Well, that’s a loaded question. Do I mean how does the card work, or do I mean, how does the Demo Design Dream Team work? First the card. You actually take two card bases, each 4 1.4″ by 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ and then trim one card front on both of them and layer them together. The following picture will help. The rest of the instructions are in the DDDT tutorial.
The Demo Design Dream team is a group of 14 very talented demonstrators across North America. Actually, I think it is all Americans and I am the token Canadian!! Together we create a monthly tutorial which is free with a $60 purchase. Very soon I will be posting previous tutorials which will now be available for sale at $15 each. Each month has a theme, so you will undoubtedly be able to find something you love. Tutorials help you create beautiful cards with no stress. You can see all my tutorials here.
In Person Class Soon??
I am really hoping to be able to offer my first in person class in a very long time. Tentative plans are for Tuesday July 20 at 9:30am. Cost will be $25 for four cards and of course coffee, tea and treats. If there is a lot of interest I will offer an afternoon and evening session as well. If you bring someone new then you will each only pay $20. The class will be the same one that I am doing for my virtual coffee and a card. Makes sense doesn’t it?
Thanks for joining me again here, I truly appreciate you. I hope that someday you will be in an even deeper relationship with me, either through my Training Group, becoming a member of my team or becoming a customer online, through Prime Time or in person. My stamping community is strong and vibrant and we truly do feel like a big family without the stress! I hope you have a super day.
