Criss Cross Unicorn

Hi Everyone

I have a criss cross card to share with you today that I have made for my special friend and crafty colleague.  It was really bugging me how when we make criss cross cards they do not stand up.  I don't get why all the times I have made them I cut them and stick them so they don't stand up or open. So I thought why not put the criss cross on the front of the card blank so it does stand up and you can still open it!  At first I thought it would topple over but it stands up perfectly so here is my criss cross card that still opens and stands up lol.

The card blank is a 7" Square and I have used Rainbow Paper layered onto Yellow Card Stock.  I used a die to cut the fancy edging.  I used several dies to make this card up including Spellbinders Scalloped Squares, cross stitched banner, star banner, Stitched fancy frames, GoKreate Circle die and Spellbinders Scalloped Circle die. (Lots of die cutting to make this card lol!)  The image is called Bookworm Unicorn from Pink Gem Designs and I have coloured him up with Copics and a Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen.  I added paper flowers, satin ribbon bows, pearl gems and star gems to decorate.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges

Here is the card without the insert

Here is the insert.  The sentiment is from We are 3

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today and share this card with me.  I hope you like my "standing up and opening" criss cross card.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.
