Good morning fellow scrappers! Hmmmm, seems like almost a whole month has flown by & I've been a bit quiet. Well, you can blame work for that. I've been a bit swamped since I went back. I've made it a point to keep my sanity by taking the time to scrap here n' there--I just haven't had the chance to post any of it! So, to start myself off here's a DT card I've made for Authentique. I've used their lovely papers from the 'Remembrance' collection. I've decided to go with a non-traditional card & opted for what is called a 'criss cross' card.
'Remembrance' is one of Authentique's petite collections full of beautiful papers in shades of deep purple & olive greens with elegant patterns and sentiments of sympathy, thoughtfulness, and good memories. These papers can be used for sympathy cards, to honor memories of loved ones who has since left us or to pay tribute to a dear family member or friend.
There are several tutorials and how to's on the internet on how you can make your own criss cross card. I simply decided to add to this collection of tutorials with my own version. What I like about the criss cross card is that it's essentially one large pocket that you can embellish as desired with a sentiment that easily slides in & out of the card. It's not a complex card to make if you wish to go with a slightly different sort of card.
Here is what the inside sentiment of the card looks like.
Following are a couple of close ups.
Now onto the tutorial...
