Christmas may have just passed, but let’s use the remaining holly jolly papers or DSP to make a festive thank you card!
Thank you cards, especially a homemade one, can really put a smile on the face of someone who hosted a holiday party or gave you that new stamp set or scarf.
This card looks fun, and it’s super easy to make using just a few scraps of that holiday paper!
The design is usually called a “starburst” or “sunburst” card, but…its winter…so snowburst, right?!
Steps to Make a Snowburst Card:
- Cut Garden Green to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″; fold in half for the cardbase.
- Cut Very Vanilla to 5 1/4″ x 4″. This will be what I adhere the festive papers to!
- Cut 4 pieces of 6″ x 1 1/2″ double-sided DSP. Cut each in half diagonally. This’ll give you 8 different patterns. Lay out the patterned papers over the Very Vanilla with the thin points towards one side of the Very Vanilla paper. Don’t worry about which order you place them…these patterns coordinate beautifully so any order will be great! Adhere the pieces edge to edge.
4. When all of your festive paper pieces are adhered, flip it to the back and trim the excess. Adhere this to your Garden Green cardbase.
5. For the sentiment, stamp the thank you in Garden Green on Very Vanilla cardstock. Die cut the sentiment using the stitched all around circle die. Die cut a slightly larger circle from the Real Red, and the next larger circle from Very Vanilla. Adhere these together, and on to your cardfront.
Sending thank you cards is a meaningful tradition. I hope this one inspires you to try a starburst/snowburst card with your remaining DSP!
