Making a Wedding card...

A friend's son is getting married this weekend... so it's time to make a card:)

Saw this delightful card... called a sunburst or starburst card on Susan Williams Blog and have been excited to try to make one...  Well, today is the day.

One of the best things about making this card is that it's a great way to use up scraps... and it also helps that CTMH's background and texture papers are double sided:)  

Start with about 6 strips of B&T 1.5x4 and cut them diagonally.  At 1.25 inch from the bottom of the card, draw a line.  put lots of adhesive above the area and then place the triangles around it.  Anything below the line needs to be trimmed.  The triangles will hang off the end of the card. After the area is covered, trim off excess edges.  

Add a strip of cardstock, ribbon or shimmer trim to cover the rough edges and the drawn line.

Add bling and greeting as desired.

And Ta Da!  it's a lovely card!

Lovely card...
The flowers (page 50) were cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge .  It's a super cartridge for the scrapbooker and card maker. Cricut cartridges are found on page 56-61 of the CTMH Autumn/Winter Idea Book.  

Get any of the three Cricut Cartridges for half price when your gathering reaches $250 in sales:)  Woot Woot!!
