JS Jane Netley Mayhew “The Digistamp” CD.


Step One

Using 300gsm JS Elegance Satin card, print out two copies of the jungle print safari backing paper.

Alternatively if your printer’s specification is such that it does not print on card, either print on 160gsm paper and stick to another sheet of 160gsm paper to get the required thickness, or make up the base card to suit.


Step Two

Using 160gsm JS Elegance Satin Paper print out four small toppers which you may need to re-size. The toppers should measure approximately 6cms x 6cms.

How to import a topper into a graphics or word processing programme and re-size it is explained in the READ ME FIRST section on the CD.


Step Three

Using one of the sheets of printed backing paper, landscape orientation with the safari animals at the bottom of the sheet, measure, mark, score and cut out the panel as shown.

Remove the cut rectangular panel, and make 6mm long vertical cuts centrally in each panel, as shown by the short green lines.


Step Four

The illustration shows the card once the centre rectangle has been removed.


Step Five

Using the second printed sheet of card cut a piece of card 10cms x 29.7cms from the paw print section of card.

Measure, mark, score and make the 6mm vertical cuts at the centre top and bottom of each of the four panels as shown.


Step Six

Mount the four toppers onto a piece of black card leaving a small border. The mounted toppers should measure approximately 6.5cms x 6.5cms and must fit inside the zigzag panels.

Optional - reverse side of the card facing, cut a piece of black card to fit the two outside panels, and decorate with animals from the leftover card.


Step Seven

The illustration shows the reverse of the card when closed. If you leave a narrow border around the elephant it will add definition. Letting the scissors “wobble” as you cut will give a more “sympathetic” edge.

This card will fit in a DL Envelope.
