My first ever Criss Cross Card

Hi everyone,

Hope your week isn't going too badly so far, almost half way through now.

Well this card is a rarity for me for a few reasons, firstly it is my first attempt at a Criss Cross card, there was not a single Copic just feels wrong LOL and not a digital element, stamp or paper in sight and i have used traditional Valentines colours and image. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out and i hope you like it.

I made up my card using the papers from my collection and decided that i would make the band removable, plus this way you can reposition the image so if you want to make the message on the removable panel secret you can do or you can move the image down slightly so you can see the top. I took pictures of all three pieces so you could see in a little more detail.

The completed card assembled

Just the band (don't you love my mini bucket in the background)

The insert with the gem detail i added.

For this card i used...

Black card from my stash
Papers & Image Country Companions by Do Crafts
Spellbinders Circle and Scalloped Circle Dies
White and Red ribbon from Stash
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Adhesive red and Heart shaped gems
White card from stash

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges
