Hi everyone, thanks so much for popping by.  I have a fun criss-cross card to share with you today.


and here is what is looks like when you open it up : )


Products Used:

HCPC 3494 – Delicate Asters PreCut Set
HCD 726 – Delicate Asters Die

HCDP 1234 – Daphne Paper Collection

Project Instructions:

Other products: Decorative Labels Eight, White Cardstock, Distressed Ink, self adhesive pearls, 3D foam pads, adhesive and die cutting machine.

Instructions: Cut a 7 x 7  and 7 x 9 piece of White card stock.  Using the 7 x 9 piece, on the long side, score a line 1 inch in on each side and cut between the 2 score marks on a diagonal and then attach to the 7 x 7 piece.  Repeat the same only reducing the size by 1/2 inch for the patterned paper from the Daphne Paper Collection on the front and inside.  Die cut and position the Decorative Blossom Corner die as shown.  Stamp, die cut and distress petals and leaves from the Delicate Asters PreCut Set.  Build flowers and attach to the card using 3D foam Pads just slightly off center as shown.  For the half flowers in each of the corners,  simply cut the die cuts in half before assembling.  Finish with a few distressed leaves.

I hope to see  you again soon.  I love to read your comments, thank you so much!

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
