Madonna’s Mystery Card Kit Swap

A few weeks ago, before all the horrible weather in Queensland, Madonna sent out a challenge to join in a mystery card swap. The idea was:

Mystery Card kit must include:

  1. A cardstock base (A5 or similar size). Colour of your choice.
  2. Co-ordinating Card Stock for Layering.  May include a piece of patterned papers.  Minimum of two pieces to be included and they must be at least 15cm x 5cm or larger. More than two pieces may be included.
  3. At least one of the following (more than one option may be chosen if desired):
    1. Brads/Rhinestones/Pearls
    2. Length of ribbon (generous enough to be tied in a bow).
    3. Buttons

I decided to participate and sent my mystery pack to Madonna. Now that things are starting to get back to some sense of normality (at least in southern Queensland – the cyclone has devastated North Queensland), Madonna has sent out the mystery packs. I was quite excited when mine turned up in the mail yesterday, so excited in fact that I forgot to take a photograph of the contents before starting to make my card.

The pack consisted of:

  • Soft Sky, River Rock, Chocolate Chip, and Very Vanilla cardstock
  • Brads
  • Twill Tape

After much thought (and a little added inspiration from Helen and Sue), this is my finished product.

I used River Rock ink to stamp Crackle (Not SU), and Chocolate Chip Ink to stamp the flourish from Easter Blossoms and the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments. I used Sticky Strip to create a frill with the Twill Tape.

Thanks to my Mystery player. You can check out Madonna’s and other entries here.

  1. Hi Annette
    Gorgeous card! The Easter Blossoms flourish is so pretty. Like you, I also forgot to take a ‘before’ photo of my cardstock pack as I was so excited to get in and create something. Too funny! 🙂


I would love to hear what you think of my blog. Thank you for your comments.
