Criss-Cross Card with a Daisy

Staying at home has provided me some extra time to create and I am loving that! I saw the sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches (#552) and decided to create a card to enter the challenge. Here is the sketch...

I chose to create a criss-cross card - one end flips over the other to create a pocket. I used the Blue Skies patterned paper from Close To My Heart - it has such bold and vibrant colours. 

The daisy on the front was Cricut cut along with the leaves (which are a little hard to see in the photo). The inner card was stamped and the outline was masked and stamped. Three stitched hearts in coordinating colours were added. I brushed the centre of the daisy with the Clear Shimmer Brush and also did the centres of the flowers on the patterned paper. A coordinating ribbon was added at the top of the inner piece to allow it to be easily removed.
