Have you ever made Sunburst cards? I’ve got 2 options for how you make or display these greeting cards. Give this a try; it’s easy!

Sunburst cards or Reverse Sunburst cards—that is the question! I love when I can show you 2 for 1 ideas and today I am sharing the 2 sunburst cards I made.  I love both but greeting cards but I’m drawn to the version where the Sunbursts go down instead of up!

I would love to hear which Sunburst Card you prefer!

Both cards are pretty and quick to make as you will see in the video.  I used the ‘Brightly Gleaming’ specialty designer series paper and I want you to know it’s not in either of our current catalogs but it is available in my store.  This paper is striking with the copper foil accents!  I used Cinnamon Cider and Pretty Peacock inks to stamp the sentiments on this sunburst card.


Sunburst Card Measurements:

  • Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored and folded at 4 1/4″
  • Pretty Peacock Cardstock – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Layer for DSP – Very Vanilla Thick – 3 3/4″ x 5″

Typically what you see as a Starburst Technique.


You will want to use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to add the triangles of Designer Series Papers.  It allows you to slide the strips so that there isn’t any cardstock showing through.  I used Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock for my 3 3/4″ x5″ layer that I adhered my DSP strips to.  While I added my liquid glue to my Very Vanilla layer I highly recommend a Silicone Mat to protect your work surface from the glue!
