Criss Cross card & box set

Good morning and happy Sunday. Although the sun is hiding today, it doesn't stop the airplanes flying around the world.
After a little break from Tilda & Edwin, I finally made myself sit down and created something fun. After looking at those amazing projects from September's Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge, I just couldn't resist. I had to try these projects out. I've never made a Criss Cross card before and so since I am trying this new project (this luggage is one), I decided to try to make this card to match. I got these stamps not long ago from Bon Voyage Collection which I purchased from Magnolia-licious.

I am using this card for the following challenges:
Magnolia-licious Highlites September - Card & bag/luggage set)
Fairy Fun Fridays Week #35 - Embossing (strips on luggage)
Charisma Carz Challenge #36 - try something new (criss crossed card, luggage)
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge - Use brads or eyelets (brads on the luggage handle)
Lexi's Creations Challenge #22 - Flower Power (crochet flower and floral prints on ribbon)
The Shabby Tea Room Week #26 - Tag you are it (mini tag on luggage)
365 Cards #195 - This or that (card for more than 1 situation)
Cute Card Thursday #129 - Play on words

Here is my complete set.


here is the criss crossed card with the three stamps (Tilda, Edwin & sentiment)


Here are some closer shots, so you can see the inner insert card and closer view on the images


Here is the luggage box for gift card or whatever little gift you want to tuck inside.


I wanted to show you a close shot of the strips of faux leather which I made with brown cardstock, cuttlebug texture folder and clear embossing powder.


This project took me an evening to complete. Actually, I thought it would take me longer, so it wasn't as bad as I thought, lol. They are truly quite fun, so I encourage you to try them out :o)


Stamps: Pilot Edwin, Flight Attendent Tilda
Sentiment stamp: I believe I can fly
Ink: Copics & Memento
DP: My Mind's Eye
Cardstock: Stampin Up
Accessories: Crochet flower, metal chain, sizzix die, pearl, clear embossing powder, brads, Cuttlebug embossing folder, ribbon, lace

Thank you so much for stopping by today and hope to see you again soon!!
