Just another Manic Monday...

Today's card template features a simple cross pattern. Your main image, or focal point, will be the vertical bar of an imaginary cross. Behind that, you will place a horizontal bar of card stock, ribbon, or patterned paper, to stretch the eye across the width of the card.

On the 6" x 3" foldover Happy Heart Day card (above), white tafetta ribbon is used for the horizonal bar. The horizontal slot punch was used to hold the ribbon in place. On the Office Accoutrement card (below-left), a sheet of coordinating card stock was used, with some spiral punching down the left side to add interest. On the New Baby card (below-right), a sheet of card stock was used, and this time the punching is across the bottom of the strip. [As always, click on any image to see a larger view!]
