Inventory Reduction Challenge #91 Criss Cross Card

What a fun challenge this week!! We need to make a criss cross card.  I've only made one other criss cross card so this sent me to the tutorials.  The challenge for the Magnolia-licious Highlite Blog is Christmas is July.  Soooo ---- I made a Christmas Criss Cross card.  Just try saying that 5 times very fast!

The front (envelope) part of the card has a base cut from Stampin' Up's More Mustard cardstock.  The designer papers are from Basic Grey Nordic Holiday, a very fun paper pack.
Tilda is mounted on a white medallion cut using my Cheery Lynn Designs Swedish Spring Oval Frame die.  Tilda is colored with Copic Sketch  markers.
The edges of the base were cut using Magnolia Antique Lace border die.
The poinsettias were from Prima.

The insert sentiment panel was cut from SU's More Mustard and layered with SU's Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Papers.
Sweet Christmas Edwin was colored with Copics.
Sweet Christmas Present is the pull tab, also Copic colored.
The sentiment is also from Sweet Christmas Dreams.
The poinsettias were from Prima.

Either one of these pieces could make a sweet card; together they are irresistible!

I'm so glad you had a chance to stop by and enjoy some Christmas in July.

I am entering this card in the following:

This is so cute! I love how you colored up the maggies and I think the present at the top of your tag is a great idea! The whole card is adorable and the poinsettias are the perfect finishing touch.
