1 JS 8” x 8” card and matching envelope.
Off-cut of white card the same size as the topper.
1 A4 Sheet JS Gentle Gloss Photo Paper.
1 A4 Sheet JS Elegance Satin 160gsm Paper.
Off-cut of Gold Mirri Card approx. 5” square.

Sticky stuff – I used Pinflair Glue Gel, Foam Pads, Collall Glue and double sided tape.

Shirley Barber CD and Project Book.

Marianne Anja Corner LR0200 Die.

Marianne Anja Squares LR0242 Die. (If you don’t have the Anja Squares or an A4 die cutting machine, e.g. the Grand Calibur, I have included measurements for hand cutting the diamond).

Optional – Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads – I used Tattered Rose, Fired Brick, and Forest Moss and applied using a duster brush.


Step One

Using JS Gentle Gloss photo paper, print out the decoupage sheet.

Using JS Elegance 160gsm paper, print out the matching backing paper.


Step Two

Open out the 8” x 8” card and place the largest Anja Squares Die centrally on the front of the card. Cut out the diamond aperture.

If you do not have the Anja Squares Die, measurements for hand-cutting are provided at step three.


Step Three

Open out the card and measure, mark and cut as shown.


Step Four

Optional – Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads and a duster brush, tint the corners of the front of the card.

Using the backing paper and the Anja corner die, cut out four corners.

Mount the corners onto the front of the card.


Step Five

Cut out the decoupage.

Mount the topper onto a piece of card the same size as the topper.

Mount the topper onto a piece of JS gold mirri card 5” x 5”.

Attach to the front of the card as shown.

Build up the decoupage layers.

This card comes with an envelope.


Step Six

Alternative use for the large Anja Squares Die. Using a JS 8” x 8” card mount the cut-away section of the Anja Squares Die, squarely behind the diamond aperture, and you will get a circle inside the diamond, on the front of the card.
