On Monday I participated in a Mystery Stamping FB Live opportunity and made a pretty satisfactory Poinsettia Petal Mystery Stamping card.
When I create a card using Designer Series Paper (DSP) I check the back of the pack to determine the coordinating card stock colors. For this card I used
- Garden Green – card stock and Classic Ink stamp pad
- Bumblebee – card stock and Classic Ink stamp pad
- Whisper White
- Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper
I also used my Light and Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blends
Measurements and supplies required for the Mystery Card:
- Card Stock: 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″, folded into a ‘Z’ pattern (I used Garden Green)
- Same color card stock: 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ (I used Garden Green)
- Different color card stock: 3″ x 4″ (I used Bumblebee)
- Very Vanilla or Whisper White card stock, depending upon your choice of DSP: 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ (I used Whisper White)
- Scraps of Very Vanilla or Whisper White card stock for stamping images (I used Whisper White)
- Very Vanilla or Whisper White card stock: 4″ x 5-1/4″ (I used Whisper White)
- DSP for the fold-back layer of Z-fold: 2-1/2″ x 4″ (I used Poinsettia Place DSP)
- Stamps of choice
- Ink for image and sentiment
- Coloring tools if needed for image stamp
- Dies, punches, Paper Trimmer, Snips, Cie Cutting Machine: I added the Poinsettia Dies and a-w-e-s-o-m-e Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
- Embellishments (optional)
- Ribbon (optional)
- Adhesives, including Dimensionals
For the greeting the instructions were to stamp the greeting in appropriate colored ink on the lower right of the 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Whisper White or Very Vanilla card stock and then attach that layer to the two previously layered pieces of card stock. My greeting could have been placed a bit lower but……it works.
If you have questions about the assembly of this card, please let me know. I think the photo is pretty self explanatory. But then I’m the one who assembled it so that’s easy for me to say.
Tomorrow……the card I’ll be swapping at our team meeting in the afternoon. It’s based on the same measurements and almost same supplies plus a few tweeks.
