Hope you all are doing good. It's an April month and Summers are approaching, So don't let the summers take away your MOJO. We have a way to bring out your mojo back. Today, Our GDT Neha Lunia, in our Teaching and Learning Program, will be going to teach an detailed card to gift to your loved ones. Let's get started!! Hi Crafty Folks,
This is Neha here with my first GDT post. I would like to thank Rainbow Craftykari Team and Maninder Kaur for giving this awesome opportunity to work with them. We all do have lots of pattern papers which are half used. So, this card is perfect to use them up. Today, I have tutorial post for creating this addictive and super easy “Starburst Card” with very few basic materials.
1. Let’s get started by cutting the pieces required for the card.
1 piece of 3 ¾ * 3 ½ “cardstock
1 piece of 3 7/8 *5 ¾ “cardstock
4 pieces of 4*1 ½ “Pattern Paper (of your choice)
1 piece of 2*3 ¾ “Pattern Paper
2. Cut each of 4*1 ½ “of your pattern paper diagonally by lining the edges up on your paper trimmer.
3. Place 3 ¾ * 3 ¼ “cardstock on your scoreboard along the long side. Mark on centre at 1 7/8” with the help of pen/pencil. Rotate 180 degree and repeat the same.
4. Apply glue all over on your 3 ¾ * 3 ½ “cardstock.
5. Line the pointed tip at the bottom and top of marked centre points. Once you have first piece in place then you can start adding other strips. Keep going and play around the combination.
6. Trim off the excess edges and you have your starburst ready.
7. Mount your starburst onto the 3 7/8 * 5 ¾ “cardstock. Line up your 2* 3 ¾ “of Pattern Paper below the starburst with help of any adhesive of your choice.
8. Place 8 ¼ *6” cardstock on your scoreboard with the long side on top and score at 4 1/8” and fold along the scored line.
9. Mount your starburst onto the folded card with help of adhesive. Decorate the card with die cuts, laces, trims, flowers or sentiments as you prefer. Here, I have used my designer scissor and strips of plain cardstock to make the trim. I have punched few small 5 petal flowers and leaves. Have shaped up the flowers using embossing tool (you can also use rounded back of your ball pen). Lastly, have completed the card with cutting off sentiment from the same paper pack.
Hope this tutorial has inspired you to use some of your scraps of card and paper. Do share your creations with us at our FB Page
