This week's Friday Mashup has a technique I haven't tried before - Starburst Technique. I thought it made a really pretty design so I wanted to give it a try. My card is going to a friend who is going through tough times right now. I wanted to send her words of encouragement and the starburst design to me says "Things will be brighter". I hope the colors of the card will brighten her day and cheer her up.
I used Flirty paper (X7160B) for my card and accented it with Color Ready Wooden Arbor Shapes (Z1765) and a flower from Just Blooms Floret Paper Shapes (Z1764). The Olive ribbon is from the Mini Medley Accents - Olive Collection (Z1489). The sentiment is from the Words of Comfort stamp set (C1524).
Here is the Friday Mashup Sketch:
The instructions for creating the starburst can be found here. I altered mine just a bit because the card I was making was a little bit larger (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) than the one is the demonstration. I cut my triangles for the starburst at 2" x 4" and then cut each triangle in half.
My card needed more triangles to fill the 2 1/2" x 5 1/4 piece of rectangle cardstock that I used.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a CREATIVE DAY!
