Starburst Technique Card

P1050848There are many different variations on this technique, but I found this method to be easy to duplicate for my September Club Class and teach to my downline, as well.  They all thought it was a great idea, and one customer even plans to make some Christmas cards using this technique.  What a great way to show off your DSP!

Like I said, lots of ways to do this, but my version uses 4 small rectangles of DSP.  Here is a photo tutorial of what we did to create the card above.

Step 1:  Take a piece of thin computer paper and cut it to 2 ¾” x 4 ¾”


Step 2:  You will need 4 rectangles of DSP (or cardstock) measuring 1 ½” x 4”.   (DSP on this sample is called FLASHBACK)  You will cut them diagonally from one corner to the other corner and arrange them as shown in the sample.  The smallest angles will be pointed down and positioned near the center.  Don’t glue them down yet!  Just lay them out and see how you want them to look.


Step 3:  Put adhesive on the white paper and attach DSP.  Make sure that you do not let ANY of the paper show.


Step 4:  When you turn over the white paper, it should look like the photo below.


Step 5:  Trim all the excess paper from the edges.


Step 6:  Create your card using this sunburst portion.
