A part time neighbor called me last week, asking if I remembered this particular card we had made “way back when”. From her description, I didn’t. But I suggested that she bring it over and we’d go from there. Here the card and I call it simply the Criss-Cross Card:
Does anyone remember this Designer Series Paper and stamp set?
While we were getting ‘reacquainted’ with how to recreate this card I pulled out some retired Designer Series Paper (DSP) and card stock. And now that I know what to do, I’m going to make a few using current products this coming week. These would be great for gift cards as well as just a short note. But in the meantime, here’s what we put together Sunday afternoon:
We used the still current Circle Tab Punch for the insert ‘pull’.
We were looking for designer papers that had two or three patterns for these next two criss-cross cards.
I love the contrast of the Watermelon Wonder stripes.
These patterns would be perfect for a baby girl gift/gift card or a wedding card. This is the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper.
We added an embellished layer (using the retired in 2015) Large Scallop Edgelits. Yes, I’ve saved a lot of stuff. The 1/2″ Chantilly Crochet Trim is also retired.
It was really quite rewarding to be able to pull out some of my retired goodies and put them to good use. Sue (neighbor) and I both had a fun, relaxing and rewarding two plus hours together. Tomorrow I’ll share the instructions on how to construct the criss-cross card. Today my personal time is up—it’s time to stack some wood that we’ve split so we can split some more.
