    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Jane asked: "Is it possible to make a 6x6 criss-cross card?"
    A: That should be easy. Try using two 6" x 12" pieces of cardstock. Score at 6" and cut down one side diagonal.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Beate has a suggestion for the Crayon Rubbed Embossing tutorial: "You don't need a brayer. I sponged over my resist background and I think it looked great!"
