Mystery Cards

Maymay challenged her viewers to create a set of mystery cards. A mystery card is where you take a 12 x 12 piece of paper, cut it into card fronts that are 4 X 5 1/4 inches and glue to them to a card base. Then you use a stamp set to embellish your card with a greeting and something else if needed. I spent a few days creating this set.

For these cards I used Sunflower Wishes by Maymay Made It for all of the stamping. The paper is one piece of Stampin’Up Designer Paper from Sale-a-bration. The paper pack listed the matching colors, so I was able to color the flowers and leaves to match the paper used. For simple cards, this worked well. Normally, I would find cardstock and layer under the greeting strip and possibly under the designer paper, but this is fine. I was sticking with her video plan.

    1. Thanks! Three of them are all labeled and stamped to go in the mail. I like these cards and it is nice to have Spring cards ready to go.

  1. Yes, you are amazing!! These are all so pretty and I agree with Bonnie that a mat layer is not missed.
    Happy Easter.

    1. Thank you! I like them the more I look a them. Like I just shared with Bonnie, three are ready to go in the mail. Maybe I will make a few more of another piece of paper and have more ready. They are quite easy.

  2. Such pretty spring patterned paper highlighted with your banner and flower. I don’t think the extra layer was needed for these cards. You are on a roll, Lisa.

  3. Lisa, these look wonderful and sometimes the simple just works perfectly. That paper is very pretty and was just right for the challenge.

    1. Thanks! It was fun. Now I am looking at my patterned paper a bit differently and seeing more possibilities for using it.

  4. This is a great idea to use patterned paper and get a bunch of cards done in one sitting! Love the paper you used and the stamped images you added to your cards. Beautiful!!

    1. Thank you! I liked her idea of letting the paper do the work but I needed an embellishment to go along and the flower seemed to work well. It went quickly once I had the flowers ready to go.
