Starburst Patriotic Card with Tutorial




This Starburst Patriotic card is a variation of the starburst technique and was made using red, white and blue to fit the Operation Write Home Memorial Day 2014 Bloghop theme.  The twist in the technique is that I left a little space between each triangle to let the background show.  The Night of Navy cardstock really made the designer series paper pop!


The patriotic card was inspired by this Live in Sunshine card that I made over a year ago.  You can see how the starburst technique looks when the triangles are put together with no background showing between them.  Which version do you like the best?


This is an easy technique as you can see in my video tutorial.


Here is the picture tutorial. The starburst technique is easy to do and makes cards that have that wow factor.  You'll enjoy trying this technique whether it's the original version or the one with a twist.

Sorry to be late in my thank you note. I used this to make some adorable (if I say so myself) cards for the Operation Write Home Halloween deadline. I've shared your site with others wanting to learn the starburst technique.
Thank you for taking time and energy to share your creativity!

wow, a friend shared this link on SCS for the above techique and oh boy, is that ever BEAUTIFUL with the red DSP and the Night of Navy background! Have done this one before but never leaving space for the contrasting color to show thru, I will have to try this! Thanks for sharing it! Jan Hoyt (better late than never!)
