I love solving mysteries, I think that is why I love creating the video for Mystery Card Monday. On Sunday, I posted and sent out the first clue to those subscribed to my newsletter and to those who are members of the Gal Friday Mystery Card group. Today, you can see the first clue below along with the card that is a mystery no more.
If you missed last night’s video, you can see the replay below.
Once you have gathered your supplies using the first clue in the download above you can start putting your card together. Post your card by Friday night in my Gal Friday’s Mystery Card group to be entered to win a random prize, just for posting.
follow these clues to create your card
- stamp image on the 2 x 2″ Basic White Square
- adhere that 2 x 2 square to one of the 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 Basic Black squares
- adhere all the 2 1/8 x 2 1/8″ Basic White squares to the 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 Basic Black squares. You can emboss the Basic White squares if you like.
- fold the 5 1/4 x 4″ copy paper in half and then in half again. You are going to use this as a guide to add the square to the center of your card front. (See video to see how I did it)
- Adhere the image square to the center of the 5 1/4 x 4 Basic White cardstock.
- Adhere the other 4 squares around the image on the front of your card
- Once dry, cut off all the pieces that are over the edge of the card front layer
- Adhere the layer above to the Basic Black 5 3/8 x 4 1/8
- Adhere the finished layers to the front of the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of cardstock that was scored at 4 1/4
- Embellish as you like.
- Adhere the other 5 1/4 x 4″ Basic White cardstock to the center of the card. Stamp with image or sentiment.
