Well here is my first ever Criss Cross Card. How did I do?
Here's the shot of the insert.
My first attempt was a real mess. I glued the wrong sides together and then could not insert the inside page. Oh well you live you learn. I think it turned out pretty good.
These images are Katniss and Effie from the Hunger Games movie. They were designed by the lovely and talented Lindsay over at Sassy Studio Designs. They are fabulous images. I colored them with Whisper Strokes, Stampin' Up and Copic markers. As my watercolor markers dry out I am replacing them with Copics. I really like the way they look. I also did a paper piecing for Katniss' dress. I found a picture of fire on line and used it for her dress. After all she is the girl on fire.
These papers come from Bearly Mine, Create with TLC, DBS Digi Scraps, Core 'dinations and Bazzill. The die cut is Spellbinders and the punch is Martha Stewart as well as the flowers. The ribbon comes from Darice.
I made the sentiments myself. My daughter didn't get it so I thought I would explain. In the movie Effie uses those exact words. I thought she could say them in reference to getting lots of gifts for Christmas. It might only make sense in my head but it wouldn't be the first time things only made sense there. Alicia (daughter) is constantly telling me I'm strange or weird but she wouldn't have me any other way. I think she is just trying to soften the blow.
If you haven't read the books you should. I felt her pain and cried for her since she wouldn't cry. I won't give away anything else if you don't know the story.
Here are the challenges I am entering:
