The House That Stamps Built-POTW

My week for the POTW - Project of the Week at The House That Stamps Built. I
am going to share how to make a Criss-Cross Card. Below is my card.

Let's get started. You will need a 12 x 12 piece of card stock, coordinating
patterned papers, some solid color card stock and stamps of your choice. I
used Repeat Impressions: Cape Hatteras Light and Hope your birthday.
Trim your 12 x 12 sheet of card stock to 5", and scor at 4" and 8". Then
trim from top of scor line to bottom right and left corners as below.

 Fold as below:

Take two 4" x 5" pieces of patterned paper and trim diagonally. Trim a small
amount off the bottom straight edge to fit the triangle sections of the card,
inside and out.

Cut center of card 3 7/8" x 4 7/8 ", may cut a white or ivory center, slightly
smaller, stamp with sentiment and add a tab or ribbon at the top.

Add image and any finishing touches:

This adds another masculine card to my stash, one of my January goals.

Thanks for stopping by!
