Sunburst Technique.

I was surfing blogger as one does late at night at the weekend and came across a technique that was new to me. So following on from my quest this year to try as many new ideas and card shapes as possible I decided to investigate further. Thanks to Kimbo I was able to watch a video on how to do this technique and found a new challenge into the bargain. I just happened to have some  Christmas papers on  my desk  so I followed the video there and then and today have finished making it up in to a card.
KaiserCraft  'Christmas Collections' Paper Pad.
Ribbon, lace and  burgundy card from stash.
Sentiment cut  from an old Christmas card.

Determined to finish the insides of my cards as I go along.
Die  is By Xcut  'Rectangle Parentheis'
Wording salvaged from an old Christmas card.
I not only found a new technique and a new challenge but have also added to my C. cards.
Results all round!!

Fabulous Mrs A - this is on my 'to try' list since Kim brought it to show the Playground and it was a pick of the week on Sunday.

Clever technique and I bet the results can look so varied.
