Christmas Criss-Cross Card



Well, I'm doing Christmas today.  And I'm spreading my wings.  This is my first criss-cross card.  And it really wasn't hard.  This little cutey image is by Elizabeth Bell.  This is an older stamp called Winter Emma.  Elizabeth Bell's World is having a challenge to make a Christmas card without using a Christmas image.  So this is my take on it.  I used a few things that I haven't used before. One is the Snow Writer.  I used it at the bottom, but it just seems to glob together and I either need a lot more practice or my snow writer is old.  I got it last year, so it is probably not good.  I also used Liquid Pearls for the falling snow.  This was a first time to play with those.

Recipe:
Cardstock - CS is Bazzill and DP is from my stash of last years Christmas paper
Stamps - Elizabeth Bell's Winter Emma and SU Tags Til Christmas stamped in SU Real Red
Die Cuts - Spellbinder Oval and Beaded Oval
Punch - SU Large Tag and Curly Label
Ribbon - SU Seam Binding
Sky - Pebbles Pearlescent Chalk
Other - Deco Art Snow Writer, Ranger Liquid Pearls, and Stickles Icicle

Copics:
Skin - E000, E00, E01, R20
Hair - E50, E51, E53
Sweater/Muffler - R37, R59
Pants - B91, B93, B95
Boots - E31, E33, E37
Cat - R37, R59, YR21, YR24
