Heavy Handed

 Starburst technique in Sweater Weather DSP, loving it! This Designer Series Paper is featured in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, and is absolutely perfect for masculine cards. I love it, but I'm not sure how the blue and white sheet coordinates with all the others?

So we sponged the edges with a bit of coordinating Early Espresso ink, but the camera makes it look heavy handed. In real life, the sponging makes it look more coordinated.

I was honored to be invited to a "Coffee and Cards" gathering recently, so I wanted to bring a nice technique card that would be new to these crafty ladies. These are impressive, but not too difficult! Just cut your DSP to 2" x 4" then cut on the diagonal from corner to corner. You only need 4 pieces to start, 8 triangle sections. Line up two at the center of your card and fan them out to cover the front of your card. The points will be uneven and not too attractive, so use some gorgeous Glimmer paper to add glamour!  We used a die-cut and fun sentiment to finish up the card!

I am showing you two base colors, just to demonstrate the impact of an Early Espresso base vs. the Crumb Cake base, both are good but the darker one is better!

Happy Stamping,
Dee Tollaksen
