Happy Tuesday everyone, yet another week has gone by, and what and for most of it we've had some amazing weather. Hope everyone is doing okay and ready for a new project.
Todays project was a challenge on my Stampin' Up! group called the Starburst technique, and oh my it's a really lovely technique to use on cards.
I thought I'd use the gorgeous new Prized Peony suite from Stampin' Up! and incorporate it with the technique.
So let's get started.........
Whisper white thick cardstock
1pc - 5" x 10" scored on longside @ 5" - card base
1pc - 4 7/8" x 4 7/8" for inside of card
1pc - for large cicle die cut
1pc - for sentiment
Basic gray cardstock
1pc - 4 7/8" x 4 7/8" for front of card layer
1pc - for the scallop circle die cut
Scrap piece for leaf die cuts
Smoky slate cardstock
Scrap piece for leaf die cuts
Petal Pink cardstock
1pc - for the Peony die cuts
So saffron cardstock
Scrap piece for the Peony stamen
Prized Peony dsp
1pc - 5" x 5" for the starburst piece
1pc - 1 1/2" x 4 7/8" for base of front layer
1. Score and burnish card base. Glue the whisper white piece of cardstock into the inside of your card.
2. Draw a light pencil line 1 1/2" in on one of the sides of your basic gray piece (which is now going to be the bottom of your card piece) for the front of your card. Now draw another faint pencil line in the middle of the card from the top to the pencil mark you've already made along the bottom. This is going to be where you start your starburst from.
3. Now you need to mark your dsp ready to cut as in the picture below.
4. Cut your dsp where you've marked it and then you need to flip number 1 over on both sides and swap them from side to side do the same with the number 2 pieces this will give you alternate sides of the dsp every other piece.
5. Now you can lay your centre piece of dsp into the middle of your basic gray card piece, placing the point onto the horizontal pencil line. Now put your 2 edge pieces of dsp on to the card lining the edge up with your horizontal line, put the rest of the pieces in to place leaving equal gaps. Having glued all the pieces in to place once dry you can cut off the excess pieces that hang over the edge.
6. At the base of your gray card piece you can now glue your piece of dsp that measures
1 1/2" x 4 7/8".
7. Glue this layer on to the front of your card base.
8. Glue your doily using a glue dot on the middle reverse side. Your 2 x circles can be glued together flat and then glued on to the card base with dimensionals.
9. Ink the edges of your flower pieces with petal pink ink and then glue them all together in the order that's in the picture below. You will see that at the base of each flower piece the shape matches up exactly making it very easy to assemble your flower.
10. Your leaves are assembled like in the picture below.
11. Now you can glue your leaves to the reverse of your flower and then glue it on to the front of your card base using dimensionals.
12. Stamp your sentiment on to the piece of whisper white card and then glue flat on to the front of your card, place some faceted gems on to your card and then that's the card finished.
Hope you liked the card I must say that I really enjoyed making this card, and I loved the end result.
