In the Wild/Sweet Symmetry - Quick Layouts Courtesy of Mystery Stamping

 Hi Everyone,

Today I have made two cards following the same layout from TX Stampin' Sharon's weekly Mystery Stamping (check her out on YouTube, she is very talented). I've used her measurements and made two cards using up scraps of designer series papers.


For each card

1 piece of card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4" (I have used night of navy and evening evergreen)
1 piece of basic white 52 x 2 1/2", 1 piece 4" x 2 1/2", 1 piece 3 1/2" x 1 1/2" and 1 piece 2 1/2" x 1 1/2"
1 piece of dsp 4 3/4" x 2 1/4", 1 piece 3 3/4" x 2 1/4", 1 piece 3 1/4" x  1/4",  1 piece 1/2" x  5/8" (I used patterns from In the Wild and Sweet Symmetry)
1 piece of basic white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" for the inside
Vine Design stamp set
Ink matching card base (night of navy/evening evergreen)
Matt black dots/ basic rhinestones
Multipurpose adhesive
Simply scored
Bone folder


On the long side score the card base at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish.

Adhere the dsp layers to the mat layers. Arrange the mats on the card front and then when you are happy with the layout, adhere them in place. You can see from the picture that I have used two layouts which are very similar but slightly changed.

Stamp the sentiment on the remaining white card and add to the card front with dimensionals.

Add the remaining white mat to the inside of the card to write your message, you could use a scrap of dsp to decorate this layer too.

A quick and simple layout which you can use lots to create many different cards for all occasions, just change up the dsp, add foil inside of card mats, add ribbon, embellishments, it will work in lots of different ways. Thanks Sharon for the inspiration!!
