Starburst


I have seen a few cards using this technique and when my Mum asked me to make a Thank You card for her doctor as he has been so kind to her I decided to give it a go. It isn't as easy as it looks but I really enjoying the challenge and love the way it turned out. I used various scraps of paper and part of a large wooden Memory Box Thank You background stamp.

Your card turned out fantastic. It looks like it has a bit of a trick to keeping everything even and perfect cuts are needed to fit the card. Good for you for trying it. The papers are really pretty too. Nice way to use up some scraps of paper. Great idea!
