APPLE CIDER DP CRISS CROSS CARD CASE

I'll admit it ... I'm a SCS lurker, and have oodles and oodles of fabulous cards saved in my favorites. Quite often, I come across a fabulous design that I feel compelled to CASE (Copy And Steal Everything). This Criss Cross Card was one of them by ncmorgan. See her original card HERE. Click HERE for a tutorial for Criss Cross Cards.

The only things I changed from ncmorgan's original design: a) omitting the hemp twine going around the card band, b) omitting the three eyelets on the band, and c) I think she used Pewter Brads and Eyelets ... I used Antique Brass.

I just love the way ncmorgan designed the layered medallion! The center of the medallion is Apple Cider DP punched with the 1" circle punch with an Antique Brass Brad in the center. The next layer is Really Rust CS pierced using the Priceless Classy Brass Template and punched with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch, then a 1 3/8" Circle Punch layer of Wild Wasabi CS, and then Really Rust punched with the Scallop Circle Punch and pierced on the scallops.
I also loved ncmorgan's unique tab on the insert portion of the Criss Cross Card. The small starburst from Baroque Motifs is stamped in Wild Wasabi on Wild Wasabi CS and punched out with 3/4" Circle Punch. An Antique Brass Eyelet is in the center of the starburst with the hemp twine threading through and around the Round Tab Punch and tied.RECIPE

You did it AGAIN!!! TOTALLY AWESOME CARD! Funny thing is I'm thinking about making baby shower invitations out of this layout. I think they will be cute.

OMGosh, this is beautiful. I love all the detail you put into it! I can see why you wanted to case it! I want to case yours!

love all the up close and personal details you showed with this! did you know that you can, with a very slight modification, make this card with another orientation? i followed the directions but cut the card stock in half at 5.5 instead of at 4.25 and then scored that in half and cut my triangles like beate's tutorial said to. i like having either option available! i love fall, don't you? how does it manifest itself in phoenix?
