Sunburst Card Kit Instructions

The following are detailed instructions on how to assemble the Sunburst Card Kits.
Step 1.  Mark a half-way point on the coloured cardstock across the top and bottom.  Adhere glue to the entire coloured cardstock or a few rows of tape at the top, bottom and middle.  Place the first patterned paper on the coloured cardstock in the centre.  Place the next patterned paper to the right of the first patterned paper as shown.  Continue with the third & fourth patterned papers.


Step 2.  Repeat the same on the left hand side working from the centre until all 8 pieces of patterned papers are adhered to the coloured card stock.

Step 3.  Turn the patterned cardstock over.

Step 4. Using scissors, trim the excess patterned paper from the edge of the coloured cardstock.

Step 5.  Turn the patterned paper over and tape to the front of the card.


Step 6.  Stamp a sentiment on the white card stock. It's best to use a Stampin' Up! Stamp-a-majig to ensure the sentiment is aligned.  Tape the white card stock onto the card face.

Step 7.  Tape the ribbon onto the strip of cardstock.  Hint, use tape on the cardstock instead of the ribbon.  Use dimensionals on the back of the strip of cardstock and place on the card face covering the join of the white cardstock and the patterned paper.  Tape may also be used if you don't have dimensionals.

Step 8.  Finish the card by taping the cardstock to the inside of the card.

Happy creating,

Stampin' Up! Sunburst Card Kits

Sunburst Cards are very popular right now and are super fast and nice and simple to make.  I have put some kits together for you to purchase via my Madeit Store.

I have cut all the paper up for you and included the cardstock, designer series paper, ribbon and instructions.  The stamped sentiment is not included in the kit. You will need double sided tape and dimensionals are optional if you would like the ribbon strip to be raised.


Happy Stamping,

RAK Cards - October 2013

The Artisan Label Punch has been featured in my RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) Cards for October.  The double layer Artisan Label has been created using 2 punched Artisan Labels.  The coloured Artisan Label has been cut in two pieces at the shortest width.  One piece is then adhered to the back of the white Artisan Label so a little bit of the colour is showing.  Repeat the same with the second piece and you've created the double Artisan Label Layer.

The Card design also includes a Mosaic Stamp from the Mosaic Madness Stamp Set, the Bitty Butterfly Punch and the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
