Instructions:  Decorated crisscross card is 6” x 8”. Start with a 12” x 12” sheet of Pearl White Metallic Cardstock and cut it in half. Score both pieces at 6” and adhere the two pieces together with dries clear adhesive so that you have a double center and a right and left flap. Use a paper trimmer to cut the right flap diagonally in half from the score line to the bottom right corner. Cut the left flap from the score line to the bottom left corner. Splitcoaststampers has a great crisscross card tutorial with photos here: 

Cut a piece of dark aqua designer paper from the Butterfly Dreams Paper Collection 5 7/8” x 5 7/8” and adhere to the 6” x 6” section of the card. Cut a piece of aqua cardstock 5 7/8” x 5 7/8”, cut in half diagonally and adhere to the two crisscross panels. Cut a 5 3/4” x 5 3/4” piece of aqua designer paper, cut in half diagonally, ink the edges with Garden Patina Ink and adhere to the aqua cardstock. Cut two Sweetheart Borders from Pearl White cardstock, sponge with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear. When Dry adhere to the insides of the crisscross panels as shown. Use dries clear adhesive to seal the bottom of the pocket closed. Cut one of the corners from the square Butterfly Kisses Decorative die, sponge it with dries clear adhesive, sprinkle with Crystal Clear and adhere it to the right bottom corner. Use a Quickie glue pen to go over the design in the paper and sprinkle with Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter. 

To create the pocket insert, cut aqua cardstock 5 3/4” x 5 1/2”. Choose one of the 6” x 6” panels from the paper collection, cut it down to 5 5/8” x 5 3/8”, ink the edges with Garden Patina ink and adhere to the aqua cardstock. Use the Quickie Glue Pen to define the design on the paper and sprinkle with Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter.  Cut pearl white text paper 5 5/8” x 5 3/8” ink the edges with Magenta Hue ink, stamp the butterfly and sentiment from the Butterfly Kisses set on the white paper and adhere to the back of the aqua cardstock. Use the Decorative Medallion outer die to cut two pieces of the aqua cardstock. Adhere them back to back at the top of the insert panel. Diecut two of the decorative dies from pearl white cardstock, sponge with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear. When dry, adhere to the aqua diecuts.

 Stamp Small Peonies on Floral Oriental White cardstock with Magenta Hue ink. Color with Rose Madder and Magenta Hue ink, diecut using the coordinating dies, shape using the 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold and finish the shaping with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.
