Starburst Card With Modern Medley

Stampin Up Starburst Card Sassy Salutation Birthday Holiday Catalog

Hello Folks. . .   happy day to ya.  Today I have a starburst card to share with you.  This is my very first try at this.  I love the new Modern Medley Designer Paper #126926.  Black and White/Vanilla is a stunning combination.  

I cut four different strips of the Modern Medley DP.  They are cut at 1.5 x 4.  Next take the strip to your paper cutter and line up opposite corners in the groove of your paper cutter and cut.  Now you have two perfect triangles.  Next cut a piece of scrap paper 2 3/4 x 5 and mark your center (2.5").  Have your strips lined up in front of you to establish your pattern.  Less confusion that way.  You want the strips to stick down nicely so use your Stampin' Up glue stick and make sure you cover the whole piece especially the edges.  Next take your strips and start arranging them.  Make sure that the strips are hanging off the top edge.  When you have all your strips on, trim off the edges so your original size is back to 2 3/4 x 5.  Viola' you have a pretty starburst pattern.  Now if I have totally confused you (LOL) google "Starburst Card" and several videos will appear.  

But I wasn't done yet.  For my focal point I used our Delicate Doilies Sizzlets #126999.  This die is beautiful but definitely requires patience.  If you take some wax paper and place on the die and next place your cardstock down you will have an easier time with all the small cut outs.  I cut two, one in Basic Black and one Very Vanilla, I was looking for a positive/negative look.  I took my VV half and glued it on.  I didn't like the look where the two came together so I cute a 1/8" BB strip and it made the center softer and unnoticeable.  My circle is a 2" circle.  My stamp set is Sassy Salutations (132070/126707) – great stamp set!!  I finished it off with a little VV 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed this card.  I was looking for something new and different.  I think it turned out darling.  If I can help, please let me know.  If you need Stampin' Up product please click on the link below and shop at my web online store.  Thanks for stopping by, have a great stamping day.  Until next time.  Toodles
