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.

You are amazing – love all of these cards!
Thanks, Diana. These were easy and different for me. I am liking using my patterned paper.
The lack of mat layer is not missed at all. The pp is the star, along with you.
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.
Yes, you are amazing!! These are all so pretty and I agree with Bonnie that a mat layer is not missed.
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.
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.
Thank you! They have grown on me without the other layers. They are easier to mail.
Lisa, these look wonderful and sometimes the simple just works perfectly. That paper is very pretty and was just right for the challenge.
Thanks! It was fun. Now I am looking at my patterned paper a bit differently and seeing more possibilities for using it.
These look great to me and I like the colour choices.
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!!
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.
