Joanna Sheen - Criss Cross Card Tutorial!

Good Morning!
Over the last few weeks each member of the Design Team over at the JOANNA SHEEN challenge blog have been taking it in turns to each write a tutorial for the readers. Today sees what I created for this going live so here is my tutorial for making a Criss Cross Card! Now I will be the first to admit that I am not the best person to explain how to do something so please bear with me! lol

Before I start though as promised here is a look at the tag that I didn't include yesterday, using the technique of 'Faux Cracked  Glass'.

 To start off with you will need 2 Square card blanks that each have one side cut on a diagonal angle.

Select one of the card blanks to apply some double sided tape to and attach the other one on top so that it looks like like this ...

Using a bone folder fold the sides in on themselves.

Decorate with card stock and Design papers.

Seal the sides down along the edges using either tape or glue. I have chosen to trap a doily between the layers to add interest.

If you would like something to write a message on mount some white cardstock and slot it in the 'pocket'. I liek to add an eyelet and ribbon to mine.
Add your main image to the front of your card and embellish!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Joanna Sheen House Mouse Stamp
LOTV Papers
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Cheesecloth, Paper Doily, Ribbon, Dew Drops, Eyelet & Glitter
Ranger Glossy Accents & PVA Glue

Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black
Copic Ciao Markers - C1, C3, E21, E31, R11 & B93

I do hope you will give this type of card a try!
Thanks for popping by,
