Criss Cross card for Polka Doodle



This weeks Polka Doodle sketch challenge lent itself quite nicely to a criss cross card. I've always wanted to do one but never had, and thought it would make for a special card for my granddaughters' 2nd birthday next week. I have a terrible time with putting patterned papers together, and we had to use at least 3, so I picked up this Martha Stewart paper. All of the sheets look so adorable together! I stamped and colored the Lily stamp twice and popped dotted the top layer. "Wishing You" was printed on purple cardstock on my computer then glued to some purple ribbon. The flower is a bunch of Primas layered together with a button from Fancy Pants in the middle. My whimsical little sun is a Studio G stamp. I used it on a circle cut from George, then glued that to a foam circle cut with my scalloped nesties. The inside balloons are from George and the words from Alphalicious and Stamped. Can you believe I used 6 different prints and a solid from this paper pack? Wow, Martha makes card making easy! Thanks for taking a peek!
