Can you believe how many times I tried to upload this post? It took 3 whole nights. Everytime I uploaded, I received an error!!!
Anyway, this card was made for a challenge card swap I participated in. The challenge was to make a criss cross card, and this is the final result. This was my first ever criss cross card, I am very pleased with how it turned out. I started with the directions from Michelle Wooderson's blog.
I used the Cutie Pie DSP Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue. I made the scallop edges using the corner rounder on 1/2 in strips of C. Celery and Bash. blue cardstock and attached to the card pieces and then pierced the strips. The belly band was made using a 1/4" strip of B. Blue stamped with Dotted BG and then layered on a 1/2" strip of C. Celery. (Note, the B. Blue strip was not wrapped all the way around the C. Celery strip. It was cut at both ends). The sentiment was stamped on W. White cs with the birthday stamp from Circle of Friendship in C. Celery craft ink, embossed with Clear EP and punched with the 1" circle punch. The sentiment was then layered onto DSP punched with the 1 1/4" circle punch. That piece was layered onto Bash. Blue punched with the 1 3/8" circle punch. The entire piece was layered onto a piece of W. Wasabi cs punched with the Scallop punch and pierced within each scallop.
To give this card some texture, I stamped the W. White cs with Dotted BG stamp and embossed with White EP(you can see it in the picture on the left). A 1/4" strip of DSP was attached to the bottom of the cs and pierced (. This was layered onto a piece of C. Celery cs. The bottom of the cs was stamped with the Wish Big sentiment from the Short & Sweet stamp set in W. Wasabi and embossed with clear EP. Yes I did use the Stamp-a-ma-jig for this project. I topped this card off using non-SU hardware and attached a piece of W. Wasabi double stitched ribbon and light blue gingham ribbon to the hardware. Hope you like it!

Aren't I lucky!!! Look what I received yesterday from my BFF Rose! This was a birthday card in the making from before my special day. This is the file folder card and insert inspired by Beate (http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/). I am so in love with that little cake, it looks edible. Rose added dazzling diamonds as the frosting and filling on the cake (yummy). Hope you can see it. This card was well worth the wait. Thanks Rose. I love it!

I created this card for a Christmas Swap with my online group. I just love this Dashing DSP. It is so festive! I just hope the ladies who receive this card like it. I removed the guide from the new 3/16 corner rounder punch to create the scallops and then I used the 1/16 hand held circle punch to create the holes within each scallop. All items used are SU.
