1 A4 Sheet of Stardream card – I used Opal.
1 A4 Sheet of Photo Paper.
1 A4 Sheet of Black Mirri card.
Off cuts of green and brown card for pine cones.
Off cut of Stardream card for mounting topper.

Sticky Stuff – I used double sided tape, foam pads and Collall glue gel.

JS Signature dies – Pine Cones.

JS “The Age of Elegance” CD.

Spellbinders “Enchanted Labels” die set.
Tea Dye, Distress Ink Pad and Duster Brush.


Step One

Using JS Gentle Gloss photo paper and JS “The Age of Elegance” CD, print out the largest topper and a sentiment.

Double mount the topper onto a piece of Stardream card, cutting the card to the same size of the topper, which should measure approximately 10cms x 12.5cms.

Mount the sentiment onto a piece of black mirri card leaving a narrow border.


Step Two

Using an A4 sheet of Stardream card, landscape orientation, measure, mark, score, and cut as shown.


Step Three

Optional – Using a Distress Ink Pad, I used the shade Tea Dye, and a duster brush tint the edges of the card.

Fold the score lines.


Step Four

Using the largest die in the 5 x 7 Enchanted Labels set die cut a piece of black mirri card.

If you do not have a suitable die, cut a piece of black mirri card 11cms x 17cms and decorate the corners.


Step Five

Centre and mount the topper onto the mirri card.


Step Six

Attach the mounted topper to the front of the card as illustrated. The topper will over sail the card at the top and the bottom. Before attaching the topper check to make sure that when the topper is attached the card will close. The topper should over sail the top of the card by approximately 2cms to 2.5cms.


Step Seven

Using the JS Signature Dies, Pine Cones set, cut out a selection of pine cones and twigs.


Step Eight

Attach the sentiment to the card to act as an anchor for the topper.

Decorate the front of the card with pine cones and twigs.

This card will fit in a 22cms x 22cms envelope.
