I also used some new dp I got recently from DCWV called HIPPIE CHIC

The dp is from Key Ingredients kit from Taylored Expressions.  Love those kits!!   For the sketch, I of course used Carly's sketch #15....

Insert taken out of card..

Morning all!   Yesterday my sister Kris and I decided to do one of our fun "Sister Challenges".  So the challenge was to pick a fancy fold that we've never done before.  This is the Criss Cross Card.  I found the tutorial at SCS while scrolling thru the resources.    I've never made one before so I thought I would give it a try.  I must say that this was real easy to make with so many options.  I used some dp from DCWV Holiday Collections, and for the tab at the top I just used one of my nesties and folded it.  The sentiment and stamp are from SU.  I hope you enjoy this and take some time to make one yourself.  Now head on over to see what Kris has made.  Have a great Sunday and thank you for stopping by *Ü*
