Starburst Cards & Big Dies

Hello friends,  
Have you ever made a sunburst card?  I have several bursting cards to show you and a how-to video in today's post 


In this first card, I used an array of pink and red cardstock.  Our cardstock is now double sided which means the backside is a lighter version of the front.  (There's always been color on both sides).  This opens up so many wonderful options for new colors!  

To get started, you need 3 strips of paper each cut 1x12".  Then take them and cut them again so you have 5 & 7" segments. Now cut them diagonally to make long skinny triangles.  
You'll be glueing them down to a base sheet and grabbing your paper trimmer to clean up the edges.  

Here's the video showing you how I did it.  




Now let's talk about the very front of the card.  Aren't these dies amazing?  They make creating a birthday or thank you card so quick and easy.  

They cut cardstock, vellum, foils and glitter paper beautifully.  




Colors for our local Highschool.  I snipped off the candles.  I also made the sunburst panel 1/8" smaller overall so I could matte it in black.


Football colors!  You'll get to make this card at my Football Fan workshop https://www.facebook.com/CraftyLalia/events on Aug 21st.  Kits are available!  

Don't forget, when you spend $50 on my website in any month, you'll receive happy mail from me! Often, but not always, they are pre-cut card kits of some of the cards I've featured on this blog, but not always!  

With joy in my heart and coffee in my cup, have a great day!
