My Bestie February Aussie Challenge

 Hi all, Well it's My Bestie time again and for this month of February I have created a
Criss Cross Card that I had a brilliant time making...
Cut one piece of 15inch by 5 inch cardstock, score at 5inches and 10inches.
Cut of the diagonal as shown. 

Cut two pieces of black cardstock @ 4 7/8 inch x 4 7/8 inch. Cut one piece on the diagonal.

Cut one piece Black cardstock @ 4 3/4 inch x 4 3/4 inch
Cut one piece White cardstock @ 4 7/8 inch x 4 7/8 inch
Cut one Patterned piece of paper @ 4 3/4 inch x 4 3/4 inch cut on diagonal
(remember to watch where your patterns are).
 Cut two pieces of Pattern paper @ 4 5/8 inch x 4 5/8 inch

Adhere all together as shown

Using the Sunrise Lily collection from Heartfelt Creations, diecut  3 large and 3 small flowers

Colour in using Pumpkin Pie
 Old Olive
Kiwi Kiss
So Saffron
all from Stampin Up 
I added a belly band later as I thought it needed something else.
This measures 1 5/8 inch x 11 3/4 inch black cardstock
patterned paper  1/2 inch x 11 3/4, score 3 1/2 inches x 8 1/2 inches
I also fussy cut the flowers and vase from the Sunrise Lily paper and adhered to card using 3D foam tape.
 I cut some tabs from Lots of Labels - Stampin Up and place a gold brad in the centre as shown.
 I punched some hearts from a heart punch - Friskars and adhered them
using 3D foam tape.
The flowers were sprayed with a liquid adhesive and sprinkled with a fine glitter.


I punched a black border and adhered it to both sides of the card.

The two Bestie images Valentine 155 and Hearts a Flutter were stamped
on water colour paper with Tuxedo Black then heat set.
Stitched Circles and Stitched Squares from Scrap Dragon was used to cut out the images which was then placed on 3D foam tape.
The images were coloured in with Distress Inks..

Thank you for stopping by.
I hope I have inspired you to create gorgeous things..
