Soho Subway Sunburst technique

Good day to you! We have a wonderful weekend of hot, hot, hot weather predicted - seems like Summer is now in full swing! Seeing the sun again has inspired today's card - aptly named the sunburst technique ;) ...

This technique is really easy but very effective - you simply cut strips of paper/card on a diagonal and then layer them into a semi circle cutting off any overhanging ends :)

I've chosen the new on trend grunge-y Soho Subway and Epic Day designer series papers as my sunburst design - I think the colours blend really well together (of course coordinating colours are Stampin Up's USP so I expect nothing less!)  The background card stock is the new Baked Brown sugar (what a fab name!).

Here's a closeup of the papers - the flower was made with the blossom punch which has become my go-to punch of choice for any flower shape - 2 punched pieces of paper pushed into the paper piercing mat to shape them and finish with a 1" circle punch piece of paper in the centre - couldn't find any antique brads which would have gone perfectly - cue new Stampin Up order! The ribbon is Daffodil Delight taffeta - so bright and cheery :)

Soho Subway designer series paper 130140 £9.95

Epic Day This & That designer series papers 130814 £9.95

Blossom punch 125603 £15.50

There are quite a few summer challenges at the moment so this card is dropping in at crafty cardmakers - #95 holiday, Incy Wincy designs - summer loving, Jellypark - celebrate summer.

Hope you have a lovely sunny day wherever you are! See you tomorrow :)
