Tutorial Time!!

A fellow splitcoaststamper came up with a great way to make a crisscross card that only uses a half sheet of cardstock instead of a whole sheet! Her name is Lynn Birus! She doesn't have a blog, so I asked if I could share how to make one here, which she happily agreed to let me! Thanks Lynn! I made a video tutorial this time!! I hope you all enjoy it! It took me several hours of editting to get it just right!! LOL But I think the next time I'll have a better idea what I'm doing! This one is a little choppy, because I was trying to "cut the fat" so to speak. The actual cardmaking time was 15 minutes. Onto the video!! It may take a minute to load.....

As you can see, I made a mistake cutting the card that goes in the pocket, but luckily....well I'm not so sure it was lucky.....I had made a card just like it before I made this video....I thought I had hit record and made the entire thing only to find that I DIDN'T push record!!! So I had to make it all over again! The first time around it was perfect, of course!!! If you have any questions on what I did, leave it in the comments and I will answer you in a new post. I think you should be able to figure it out though!! Y'all are smart!!

Awesome! Thanks so much for posting that. I had seen one somewhere else but the directions weren't completely clear and this makes it so easy. Love the music, too!

Great tutorial! I've seen and been amazed by criss-cross cards, but hadn't tried to make one yet. Who knows, maybe it will be my Easter card this year.

My boys(ages 2 & almost 4) love the music...while I watched your tutorial, they danced around me!
