The X Card

I belong to a small on line card group and each month we have a card swap October was an X card

Instructions are from Beccy's place  click on the  link at it will take you there     
I was unsure of what the theme was going to be with this card racked my brains for ages... if only I read the theme instructions properly I could of saved myself the bother
So first there was four lots of measuring,folding and gluing the measurements on beccy's site was for a four inch square,I thought it was too small so I made it an eight inch square,much easier for increasing the distance of the folds
Then onto the backing paper I used spots and stripes also added a few embellishments
Then I put backing paper on front and back,inserted the ribbon that would tie the card into a book
 Finally I came up with the idea to do a crafters theme so I found and printed off a lot of crafty sentiments so then I had to cut them all out and adhere to the card

View of the insides
Then the front 
I printed out the image added Black Photo Corners to it and adhered to brown card I then used a backing paper from a natural matstack that had foil going through it ahered to front of card printed the sentiment on the computer
