Criss Cross card tutorial

 Today I am going to show you how to make a criss cross card.
For the card you need: cardstock (2 different colours), pattern paper, lace, glue, paper cutter, stamp and embellishments
 Take a cardstock 30cm x 30cm and divide it in two, 15cm x 30cm.
 Fold at the middle. Then cut one of cardstock diagonally from the center top to the bottom left. Cut the other one from the center top to the bottom right.
 Glue the lace diagonally from the top to the bottom as you see in the picture above.
After that glue part A over part B.
 Take cardstock nr 2 and divide it in 14cm x 14cm. Divide it in 2 (diagonally) as you see in the picture.
Cut the pattern paper in 13cm x 13cm and divide it in 2 (diagonally).
Glue pattern paper and cardstock together and place it at the front of the card.
 Glue the card together. First part B of the card and then part A. Look at the picture how to do it.
Now you can decorate the card.
Then you have to make the tag. I have cut 13cm x 13cm aquarelle paper and stamped the same image inside, as I have used at the front of the card. Then I  have coloured the image.
 I cut a cardstock 13,5 x 13,5 cm and added it to the aquarelle paper. I have used 2 eyelets to fasten the ribbons.
 Here I have finished my card.
 Happy stamping and card making
