Criss Cross Card

Here is an example of a card that I want to do it's called a criss cross card. I haven't tried it yet, but I will soon! :O)
Step 1 Score both 4 1/4" x 11" pieces of cardstock at 5 1/2".

Step 2 Take one scored piece and cut it diagonally from center top to the bottom left. Take the other piece of scored cardstock and cut it diagonally from the center top to the bottom right.

Step 3 Add adhesive to the rectangle back of one of the cardstock pieces. Tape both pieces together. Make sure both long edges of the diagonal sections are on the bottom.

Step 4 Cut the patterned paper in half diagonally. Adhere it to your card front.

Step 5 Add tape on the bottom of the middle panel, as well as on the bottom of the triangle flap that will be on top of the card. Tape the card base together and set aside.

Step 6 Take both pieces of cardstock for the insert and use the corner rounder on the top corners. Tape together.

Step 7 Stamp and add tab and other embellishments as needed.

Step 8 Take the 1½" x 12" piece of coloured cardstock and score at 5⅝" and 11¼".

Step 9 Add tape to the end of the strip with the small ¾" scored section. Tape band together.

Step 10 Decorate the card band. Slide your band over your card.
