Criss-Cross, Applesauce!

This is a criss-cross card -- I followed the directions on THIS Splitcoast Stampers Tutorial. Fun cards to make -- and a great way to show off patterned paper and the matching stamps. I made these two last night for a pair of adorable preschool teachers named Ms. Joan and Ms. Anne. They have let Sophia spend the morning in their class three times during her track out. So I made these gift card holders for their beverage store of choice -- Starbucks! Criss-Cross Applesauce as we say at circle time.........

*A "Christmas" card with a winter theme and a bit of sparkle and bling

The card technique for your technique ring is "heat embossing" -- that's what we'll be doing to the branches on the Christmas Card.
