Tilda Catching Stars!

Today, I'd like to show you my DT card for TOMIC challenge. This week we have a fabulous theme: CRISS CROSS CARD + stamp from the PRINCE AND PRINCESS Collection. If you haven't made a Criss cross card before, I have done a tutorial for you to follow (see below).
I have used Tilda Catching Stars and those super gorgeous papers are from MME Follow your Heart - BE HAPPY paper pad:

Stamps: Tilda Catching Stars (Magnolia Prince and Princess 2012), Sentiment - Magnolia; Stempelglede - Vintage Garden; postage stamps
Copics: dress: R27, 24, 22, 21, 20, 00, 0000; shoes: E29; 27; 25; 23; 21; hair: E49, 59, 59, 27, 25, 51, 50; skin: E13, 11, 00, 000, 0000, R22, 20
Paper:My Mind's Eye - Follow your Heart BE HAPPY paper pad; Bazzill

Embellies: WOC flowers, stickles, flatbacked gem stones, heart charm, satin ribbon

1. You need a square cardstock. I’m using a card measuring 30,5cm x 30,5cm.
2. Cut into half. Score both pieces right in the middle. Make a crisp fold.
3. Take one piece and cut it from the top of the scored line to the bottom left corner. Do the same on the other piece except you score from the top of the scored line to the bottom right. Before you cut, make sure you’re cutting in the right way so that the other part goes across.
4. Put some double sided tape or glue at the square panel as shown in the picture.
5. Glue both pieces together.
6. If you want to decorate the inside with some patterned paper, do it now before gluing the triangles together.
7. Decorate the triangle flaps with patterned paper.
8. Put some double sided tape at the bottom of the inside panel and at the bottom of the triangle on the left.
8. Glue the right triangle.
9. Glue the other triangle. Your pocket for the criss cross card is now finished.
10. To create an insert, cut a card, decorate with coordinating patterned paper. Add some tab(s) so that the card can be pulled out easily from the pocket.
11. Decorate the criss cross card to your liking. Have fun!

Have a lovely day!
