Criss-Cross Card

I absolutely love Cosmo Cricket papers, and when I checked the latest challenge on The Shabby Tea Room (using cream, green, yellow, red, and white), I knew I could use some of my favorite Cosmo Cricket papers for the card.  And since I love to make cards with various folds, etc., I looked at some of the resources on Splitcoaststampers and found a variation on a pocket card, the criss-cross card.  For the finishing touch on my card, I took apart some flowers that I bought at Michael's and reassembled them, once again creating flowers that do not exist in nature (especially with Stickles on them)!

I also entered this card in: Stamp Something weekly challenge--something flowery,  Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge--summertime, Paper Playtime's Flower Power, and CAS-tastic Wednesday Challenge--Inspired by Summer.

Stamp:  SU's A Word for You; Paper:  Cosmo Cricket, SU's Very Vanilla and Old Olive; Ink:  SU's Old Olive; Punch:  SU's Round Tab; Embellishments:  Stickles, ribbon and flowers from Michael's, and brad and button from my stash.
