Cards Inspiration with Alicia!

Good day Quick Quotes readers! 

Alicia with you today presenting a set if Sunburst cards with Catalina Island collection paper and stickers.  Sunburst cards are a great way to showcase all the pretty papers in a collection. I think this collection lends itself so well to a Sunburst even the sentiments from Catalina Island Die Cut Stickers are perfect for them!


 

Horizontal Sunburst
  • Begin with 4 pieces of 1.5"x4" paper.  Cut each piece diagonally from corner to corner creating triangles.
  • Place the triangles in the order you want your burst on a 2.75"x5" scrap piece of card stock (you won't see any of this piece when finished)
  • You may have to fidget a bit with the triangles to insure complete coverage, moving them up and down on the scrap piece.
  • Chalk all the edges and adhere when your sunburst looks desirable.  Cut off excess paper.
  • Layer your sunburst on a mat 5.25"x4"
  • Use a ribbon to cover the bottom edge of your sunburst and transition to sentiment section.
  • Sentiment paper measures: 1"x5"



 

Vertical Sunburst
  • Begin with 4 pieces of 1.5"x4" paper.  Cut each piece diagonally as above.
  • Place the triangles on a scrap piece of paper measuring 3.5"x3.75"
  • Place the triangles to ensure complete coverage.
  • Chalk and Adhere
  • Layer your sunburst on a mat 5.25"x4".  Cut off excess paper.
  • Use a ribbon to cover the bottom edge of your sunburst and transition to sentiment section.
  • Sentiment paper measures:  1.5"x3.75"


Some more helpful hints:
  • Use excess papers cut off edges to get the smallest corners of the sunbursts.
  • To create sentiment embellishments, place sticker on white card stock, trim edges and pop up!
  • Don't forget to use both sides of the papers for more variation.
