|This card is made by attaching decorative paper to the card front.|
We made this pretty starburst card at our last workshop. They are really easy and fun to make if you know a few measurements. You can make them with any decorative paper, a with random pattern like this one or with a regular pattern. (think alternating the orange and blue pattern paper)
You will need to cut the decorative paper into 4"x 1 1/2"
strips. Then cut them in half diagonally. From here you can attach them directly to your card front, or to a 3"x5" scrap of paper. Either way you will need to mark the center. Then you
will be ready to lay your strips down. Start on either side of the center mark.
You will keep all points facing in the same direction and cover
the scrap of paper. Trim the excess from the edges.
Add a strip of paper or ribbon
to finish the bottom edge. Add a greeting and you are good to go!
|This card is made with the 3x5 scrap under the decorative paper.|
For the greeting, I used a tag cut from the Apothecary Accents framelits, cut it in half and trimmed the center edges. Then I punched two holes in the end, ran some linen thread thru the holes and tied a small piece of burlap ribbon on top. It gave a ribbon look with out all the ribbon- and something a little different!

Recently, I made a potentially expensive mistake. It would have never happen if I had spent a little time keeping up with Stampin'Up! news and specials. It was the motivation I needed to get back to blogging. Be sure to check here daily for Stampin'Up! specials, and projects I have been working on in my craft room. Please let me know if I can help you navigate your way through all the wonderful opportunities SU offers!
