Jen B has a fun sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches. The moment I saw the sketch I knew what I wanted to create! This is my first attempt at a sunburst card and I love how it turned out. A great card to brighten someone's day! Here is the original sketch for you to design with:
While I had the perfect design in my head, I had to manage to get that onto paper! I will admit, I first googled sunburst templates to find a cutting pattern. There are numerous options out there. In the end, I decided I was making this too complicated. I free handed my rays with a ruler and cut them out by hand, no template needed. I sponged the edges to give it the rays a little depth. I embossed my center circle to add interest to my sun.
All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

My saying is actually from a Sympathy stamp set.....I think the saying is great to use for everyday cards. Here is a look at the complete stamp set.
