Starburst Comfort Cafe


I have been creating lots of these Starburst Cards from Technique Junkies lately. They are so much fun to make. It’s like doing a puzzle with every card. See the directions below.


This card uses the retiring Comfort Cafe designer series paper (126898) with the Serene Silhouette stamp set (Wood 127322, Clear 127324). I also used Soft Suede and Crumb Cake card stock for a very calming card. I really like the Comfort Cafe paper because it can create great neutral cards with the softer patterns and bold, colourful designs with the other patterns.

Take a look at the second card below and then leave me a comment letting me know your favourite of the two.

Best of Birthdays Starburst Card


This card is has a lot more going on! For the designer series paper, I used Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper (item 130814) with the Best of Birthdays stamp set (132929).


Starburst Card Step #1


 Cut pieces of card stock and/or  designer series paper to either 1" x 6" or 2" x 6".  Cut pieces diagonally.


Starburst Card #2


I recommend laying out all of the pieces before adhering.

Start at the outer edges and work your way to the middle.

You can use as many pieces as you wish in whatever sizes.


Starburst Card #3


When you line up the middle piece, make sure that the corner is covered as above.
