Materials

2 A4 Sheets JS Elegance Satin 300gsm card.
2 A4 Sheets JS Elegance Satin 160gsm paper.
1 A4 Sheet JS Gold Mirri card.
1 A4 Sheet 100/120gsm paper for insert.
Approx 20cms narrow ribbon.
2 JS Crystal Brads –Circle Clear 4mm.
Sticky stuff – I used double sided tape and Collall Glue.
JS Daisy & Friends CD Rom – I used an image from the Daisy selection and a backing paper from the Mixed Backing Papers.
 

 

Step One

Using 160gsm Elegance paper, print out a sheet of Daisy toppers and a complementary backing paper.

Cut-out one of the largest Daisy toppers and mount onto gold mirri card. Cut a piece of backing paper the same size as the topper and mount onto mirri card. Both toppers when mounted should measure approximately 10.5cms x 11.5cms.

Join the two toppers together as illustrated. Before joining, check they fit on the card.

Cut out the two small heart toppers and mount onto 300gsm card (cut to size) to strengthen.

Score and fold an A4 sheet of Elegance 300gsm to create an A5 card, turn to landscape orientation.

 

Step Two

Cut a strip of Elegance 300gsm card 21cms x 3.5cms. Score as shown and round the corners on the 11cms section. Punch a small hole for the ribbon.

Apply 1cm wide double sided tape to the reverse of the heart topper and fix the topper to the strip of card so the top of the heart butts up to the lower score line.

Fix the second heart so it butts up to the top score line. The double sided sticky tape should not protrude either side of the card strip.

Cut a piece of card 3cms x 6cms – Optional, type a sentiment mount onto the card and decorate. Attach to the bottom of the long strip of card and punch two holes to attach the strip to the card, as illustrated.

Mountain fold and crease the score lines then fold under section A. It should protrude below the sentiment tag. This is the “waterfall”
 

 

Step Three

Mount the two toppers on the left-hand side of the card.

Attach the “waterfall” to the card using two Crystal Brads.

Attach a small piece of ribbon to the bottom of the strip. Pulling the ribbon downward operates the “waterfall”.

Add an insert.

This card will fit in a C5 envelope.
