I thought creating a sunburst/starburst card in patriotic colors would be a good idea for the Fourth of July, since the rays of the pattern look a little like bursting fireworks.
Instead of placing all the rays tight up to each other as is normally done in this technique, I left a gap between each of them. For the gaps I used Whisper White cardstock embossed inside the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. By having the white white gaps between the rays, it gives the card a lot more of a POP -- or BANG! or SIZZLE? or PIZZAZZ? How about KABOOM?!?
At the spot where all the rays intersect, I created my focal point using two sets of Framelits: Apothecary Accents. Do you notice that I have TWO of these pieces, one each in red and blue, staggered so the points resemble -- once again -- something of a starburst or fireworks. I also used the Circles Collection for my happy little sentiment. I stamped and cut out stars complete with sparkle(rs) to pop up around the circle.
I hope you have a happy happy happy 4th of July -- and that you and yours all stay safe!
