1 A4 Sheet JS Elegance Satin Card 300gsm.
3 A4 Sheets JS Elegance Satin Paper 160gsm.
1 A4 Sheet JS Gold Mirri Card.
Sticky Stuff – I used Double Sided Tape and Pinflair Glue Gel.
JS House Mouse Christmas CD and Project Book.
Using 160gsm JS Elegance Satin Paper print out a set of decoupage and a co-ordinating backing sheet. I used the decoupage from Project 10 and a backing sheet from Project 16.
Portrait orientation, score an A4 sheet of JS Elegance Satin Card 300gsm, at 3cms intervals to create seven panels.
Score the card in half horizontally. Do not fold.
The raised vertical score lines form the front/outside of the card.
Using the centre Blue score line as a guide, measure mark and score as shown.
Score the Red lines first - do not fold.
Cut the Green lines.
Valley fold the centre Blue score line.
Ease and mountain fold the Red score lines.
Cut away the green shaded 1cm wide sections. This will divide the outer panel into two.
Valley fold the remaining 1cm section as shown.
Illustration shows the blank card once the seven panels have been cut and folded.
Apply double sided tape as shown in pink and re-join sections A and B of the outer panels.
Cut seven pieces of backing paper, mount on JS Gold mirri card and attach to the front panels.

cut 2 panels 6cms x 2.2cms

Omitting the base image, (which can be used on another card) layer up and stick the decoupage to the front of the card.
Optional – use one of the decoupage layers as an accent on the back of the card.
