Materials

1 A4 Sheet JS Stardream Card – I used Black.
2 A4 Sheets JS Gentle Gloss Photo Paper.
1 A4 Sheet JS Gold Mirri card.

Sticky Stuff – I used doubled sided tape, foam pad, Collall Glue and Cosmic Shimmer Glue..

JS Signature Die SD006 - Pine Cones.

JS “The Age of Elegance” CD Rom.

 

Step One

Using JS Gentle Gloss Photo Paper print out the largest image from the Coles Phillips section on the CD. Print out the matching backing paper from the Art Nouveau section.

I also printed out one of the interactive sentiments to complement the Image.

It explains on the CD how to capture a single image and import it into a word processing or graphics programme. It also explains how to use the interactive facility.

If you are printing a single image it should be re-sized to 9.8cms x 12cms and the sentiment should be re-sized to 3.5cms x 3.5cms.

 

Step Two

Using an A4 sheet of JS Elegance white card, landscape orientation, score in half vertically. Do not fold.

Turn the card to portrait orientation and score 4cms in from both side edges, score a further score line 1cm inside each of the 4cms score line.

Score the diagonal score lines as shown. Do not fold.

Cut along both the 4cms score line 3.5cms either side of the centre score line. The cut will measure 7cms.

Cut a 1cm vertical line between the 4cms and 5cms score lines. Cut away a “V” (shown in green).

Mountain fold the red lines and valley fold the blue lines.
 

 

Step Three

The illustration shows the card when folded.

 

Step Four

Mount the image onto a piece of gold mirri card 10.5cms x 14.5cms leaving a deeper border at the bottom of the topper.

Using the small foliage die from the JS Signature Dies Pine Cones, cut two from JS gold mirri card. Stick the foliage to the topper below the image as shown.

Mount the sentiment on a piece of gold mirri card 4cms x 4cms.

Cut a piece of backing paper and mount onto a piece of mirri card, sized to fit the side panels at the front of the card – attach to the card. The sizes shown are for guidance, and may vary depending on the size of the side panels. The measurements will need to be reversed for the panel on the right-hand side of the card.

 

Step Five

Attach the topper to the centre panel of the card.

Centre the sentiment on the card covering the join in the foliage.

Attach the two side panels.

Optional fix a small topper to the reverse of the card.

This card will fit in an 18.5cms square envelope.
