If you need instructions on how to make a mini criss-cross card, you can find them HERE.
I found this mail patterned paper in a scrap bag I bought at Michaels. I used Cuttlebug's Script EF and CTMH Cocoa CS which has that awesome white core. I sanded the embossed image and rubbed CTMH Bamboo Ink Pad across the top to give it an aged look.
I don't have a Tab Punch, but made the Tab using my Coluzzle. Instructions for making a tab with a Coluzzle can be found HERE.'Guy' cards don't always come very easy to me, but I loved how this mini criss-cross card turned out. As I was making it, I wondered if I would be able to use the same paper and make a regular sized card. I wasn't sure of what to use as an image, and then it came to me...put a package on the front. So that's what I did. And here's the card.
Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
Isn't it neat? I wrinkled my paper, rounded the corners, inked the edges, and tied it with Hemp. I even wrinkled the corner, as if it got beat up in the mail. I used CTMH 3D Foam Squares to attached it to the front.
