Hello! Today’s post is to serve as a reminder that we have a fun technique challenge going on at Christmas Card Throwdown. We’re hoping you’ll join us in creating Christmas or wintry cards using the starburst (a/k/a sunburst) technique.
I’ve created a second card for the challenge, and I’m sharing that today. I used four different designs from a Basic Grey collection of holiday patterned papers. I cut them into long, narrow rectangles and then cut the rectangles diagonally to form triangles. I sponged the edges of the triangles with cherry red ink. I fanned the triangles out over a piece of white linen textured cardstock, letting a little of the white show between the triangles. When I was satisfied with the arrangement, I used double-sided tape to adhered the triangles to the white base. After trimming the excess off the panel, I attached my starburst panel to a piece of cherry cardstock, which I then attached to the pale green card base. The ornament image covers where the points of the triangles meet; I’ve attached it with dimensional adhesive to keep the card from feeling too flat.
Thanks for stopping by today! Remember, you have until 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday, March 3 to share your own starburst card at the CCT site.
