A Criss Cross Christmas

This is what we learned to make on our second class at Lora Crafts, we made one in class (pic to come) and our homework was to make one on our own. I really enjoyed it and it came out even better than I imagined it (even if I do say so myself!).

Above is the band that goes around the card. I cut out the snowman and mounted it onto a tag made from Whitewash coredinations that had been embossed with a cuttlebug snowflakes folder. The Craftwork Cards sentiment fitted in perfectly.

This is the tag that went inside the card. The sentiment was computer generated and I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose Distress inks to stop the paper from looking too harsh.

Thanks for looking!


PS Some of the matting and layering looks a bit wonky in the pics but it is straight in real life - honest!
