Cris-Cross Card

Hi ya everyone!  Melissa from Melissa Made here and I'm excited to be sharing with you a little something I learned from this months Card Maker Magazine.  Thanks Sheila for allowing me to share today.  I loved these Cris-Cross Cards as soon as I saw them.  They are very simple to make and are a great size for Christmas and gift cards.
Here's how I did it:
For those of you that don't like to watch videos - here are the dimensions to make the Cris-Cross card.
Card Envelope
2 - base cards - 5.5inch square - cut fronts at diagonals - one bottom right to top left and one bottom left to top right.
1- square cut at 5.25inch square and cut on the diagonal
2 - square cut at 5 inch square and cut on the diagonal in different patterned papers
Insert piece
1 - 5.25 square in solid card stock
1 - 5 inch square in patterned
1 - 4.75 inch square in solid white
 I hope you enjoyed this simple card tutorial.  Please feel free to leave comments and ask questions! I love to hear from you!  For more fun projects please come by Melissa Made.
