A Sunburst Get Well!

There's not been much crafting done here last week as I had the decorators in and everything was topsy turvy. But I had made this card a while ago and not shown it yet.

I made it for my partner's brother who suffered a severe stroke back in September. I thought something bright and cheerful was in order and I'd been wanting to try one of these sunburst cards for a while.  I found the measurements to make it on YouTube, where there are lots of videos to choose from. they all seem to be for American sized A2 cards though. As my mathematical brain wasn't working (lol) I just went along with them and added a couple of mats to make it more the size I wanted.

The papers were all from my snippets box and are retired DSP (but it is a good way of using some of those snippets. I added some bits of card embossed with the square lattice EF, and a  strip punched with the dotted scallop punch, which I thought was more masculine than ribbon! The sentiment is from the Label Love set and punched with the matching punch.

As I used lots of snippets  I'm taking it over to Pixies Playground  as they like lots of snippets there. If you've never visited - you should go and have some fun there.


You can order from my online shop at anytime  or email  if you prefer the personal touch .

  1. A beautiful sunray card and your measurements have worked out perfectly. We are about to have the decorators in for the main bedroom and to redo the wall in the lounge (of pigeon fame). Hugs Mrs A.
