Crisscross Card Tutorial

Do you ever get tired of making the standard A2 card ? well to be honest with you I sometimes get bored with the usual and look for something that tickles my fancy.   In this weeks bellarific challenge I decided to do a tutorial on how to make a crisscross card while incorporating the rule of 1-2-3 and here is what I came up with.

I stamped the percolator image on bella's bestest paper using memento black ink. The designer paper is from K & Company, Amy Butler design.  The crisscross card is one of the most versatile cards that you can make where  the insert can act as a recipe card, shower invitation, birthday invitation etc.  Just by changing the designer paper you can turn this card into a Christmas card and in the insert you can add a recipe of a gingerbread cookie, the possibilities are really limitless.  I hope you enjoy this weeks tutorial and please join me again next week where the Bellarific Friday Challenge is a Christmas/ Holiday Card.

Before I sign off for today, I just want to share my excitement about this Saturday where I get to meet some of the awesome Bella babes for the first time and they are  Cathybella, Danabella, Lindabella, Paulabella and Paulinebella.  I have actually met Linda and Paula once and I am looking forward to seeing them once again.  I will be bringing along my video camera to capture the party at bellaland !!!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and be sure to enter next weeks bellarific challenge for a chance to win bella buckaroonies.  Mwah for now !!!
