Sunburst Card Case

September 11, 2013

Sunburst or Starburst cards are everywhere on the internet and they look so pretty.  I did try one of these a while back and couldn’t get it to work and gave up in frustration.  However, recently I watched a video by Dawn Olchefske which was so easy to follow that I had another try.  My card is a CASE of the one that Dawn makes in her video, although I did use a different greeting.  I can thoroughly recommend that you watch and give one of these cards a try.


Isn’t the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper just gorgeous.  This card uses just two of the double sided papers in the series.    I think this card could be used for any number of occasions – wedding, anniversary, special birthday or just to congratulate someone on a fantastic achievement.   The lovely Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon is just perfect with this Designer Series Paper.


We made this card in the class at Beachmere Retirement Resort this week and to make sure that it was a little generic, I kept the inside decoration of the card simple.  The ladies loved it.

I do have a little tip for you – make sure that the design you want to use is facing up when you do your diagonal cut otherwise your pieces will be cut in the wrong direction.  (Ask me how I know this??).

    Must agree with Gwen – very striking. I love this technique but haven’t tried it in years. In fact this is our next Technique for our class this Sunday…..
