Welcome!! Are you having a great day? I hope my Criss Cross Fancy Fold makes it an even better day. This is an easy fancy fold that you can adapt to any occasion. Mine is more on the feminine side, but I can see it easily adapted to both masculine and cards for the kiddos.

This color palette is so striking. I’ve pulled some of the colors from the Butterfly Bijou DSP. By combining the Mint Macaron, Magenta Madness, Bermuda Bay and Basic White, I think the card has a little of a vintage look. What do you think?

To step up my focal image, I turned to the Detailed Bands die set. I love that one. I sure hope it sticks around for the new catalog. But you never know. That retirement list will be posted on March 24th. Why is that? Well, we have a new annual catalog right around the corner. But I digress, let’s get back to today’s project.
