Hello! It’s technique challenge time at Christmas Card Throwdown. For the next two weeks, we’re hoping you’ll give the sunburst technique a try. Some people call it the starburst technique. Either way, it’s a super way to use up some of your designer papers! Here’s the link to the tutorial I used when I first learned how to do it: Starburst Technique
I decided to go with a snowman theme for my card. It ended up using the not-so-snowy, traditional Christmassy colors of red and green. Usually I sponge the edges of the triangles when I do this technique, but I opted not to take the time to do that this time.
Be sure to check out the cards the Design Team has made. Then create your own card using this technique, and share it with us at the CCT site by 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday, March 3. We’d love to see your take on the technique!
