MFP Tutorial Time Ch #13 Criss Cross Card

Welcome to the 13th Ch. on Tutorial Time at Speedy TV.  This week our wonderful Lois Bak has our tutorial for the "Criss Cross Card"  technique. Check out our DTs cards following this Tutorial at Tutorial Time on SpeedyTV Challenge #13.

For my card I made the insert by layering clear recycled heavy packaging (to make the top firm so that the laminating machine wouldn't Curl & Eat the top portion of insert that didn't have cardstock to the end)  BUT FIRST I stamped the fruit bowl and chef on white CS & colored with Copics, Then I  made a reverse image by stamping on my Stampa-a-ma-jig and transfering onto white CS by placing stamped side onto the paper & pressing firmly with a brayer (I did have to go over my image outline with a sharpie pen).  I colored both with Copics also & cut both images out and glued together so both sides were colored, I stamped Celebrate BIG! on both sides of yellow CS & heat embossed with black. Then I inserted into laminating sheets & sent through the heat laminator.  See the back of my card with the insert to the right. I used ribbon for my belly band with  the sentiment cut out with Sizzix  "Have a great Day"  Framelits (arrow).
