Winter Frost Decorative Paper Starburst Technique

Today I am going to share with you the card I made for Tuesday's technique swap.  The swap was to make a card using the "Starburst" technique.

You cut your card stock 4" x 5-1/4" and score one end at 1-3/4".  Then you cut your designer papers at 4" x 1-1/2" and then cut that strip on the diagonal.  Turn one half of that diagonal cut over and you now have 2 different designs for your card.  Repeat that with 3 other designs for a total of 8 different designs.  

Next you will apply adhesive to the entire card above the score mark.  Start in the center and add your wedges.  Work the wedges all around the piece.  Pieces will stick over the edges, it's ok, you will be trimming them off.  

Once you are done, trim the edges around the card.  Add your border, ribbon, embellishments, etc.  

This is a fun and pretty easy technique to do too.  I shouldn't say "pretty easy"  it was easy, I had made 11 of them and after half way through I wasn't having as much fun as I was when I made the first ones.  But I managed to make 11 of them and was SO glad when I had finished them!!  I did like how it turned out though!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
