Hello friends! It has been so lovely here the past couple of days. My daughter has been taking the baby out for walks every day and she loves it! I can't wait until I'm not grounded any more so I can join them. I am really looking forward to Wednesday so I can see her again! I feel absolutely fine but the nurse at 811 recommended staying away for the full 10 days since she is a newborn so of course I will do it. At least I've been getting some cards made and some sewing done.
Today's card is another Mystery Card. I participated in my friend Susanne's team meeting today and this card is from that. We were told to cut our cardstock at specific dimensions and were told to have a piece of DSP measuring 6 X 6. We cut the DSP during the meeting and assembled our card then.
I started by choosing my DSP from the Sunshine & Rainbows pack. It is a free item that you can pick from the Sale-a-bration catalogue.
I then chose my Bermuda Bay card base as it coordinated with the DSP. I cut my other pieces of cardstock according to the dimensions given to us. I chose Magenta Madness cardstock as it is also in the piece of DSP I chose. I cut the DSP to put it on the strips of Magenta Madness cardstock.
I attached the largest piece of matted DSP directly to the card front. I then added the medium sized piece just to the left of center and attached it using dimensionals. I added the smallest piece to the right using adhesive where it attached to the second piece of DSP and dimensionals where it attached to the card front.
I stamped my sentiment from the Rainbow of Happiness stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock. I used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch to punch the ends of my strip of white cardstock. I matted this onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock that I punched in the same way. I added this sentiment piece to my card using dimensionals.
This is where I finished my card during the meeting but I was not completely pleased with it. It was missing something. I decided to add some white dots from the Classic Matte Dots package. I also added a bow that I tied using the Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon. I attached the bow to my sentiment piece using a glue dot. The cardstock that I used is Magenta Madness and the ribbon I used is Polished Pink but I think it is a very close match and probably wouldn't have even been noticed if I didn't point it out.
What I used for today's card:
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I think this card feels like Spring with the bright and happy colours. I don't have a specific person in mind to send this card to which is unusual for me. I will send it off to someone though. I know I have said this before but I really enjoy these challenges and mystery cards. I hope whoever receives this one enjoys it.
Stay well and keep creating!
