The starburst technique is really impressive looking - but actually quite easy to do! I love the sparkle that the Silver Glimmer paper adds to this project! We are making this card in my Stamp Club on Monday - want to join us? Here is a close up of this card:
I used the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack for this card. What I love about the stack is that you get 48 sheets, 24 each of 2 double-sided designs. Which means if you have a lot of Christmas cards to make you won't have to buy tons of packages of 12" x 12" paper! I liked the simplicity of just using two patterns for this card - especially since I wanted the snowflake to be the focal point. A quick tip on the glimmer paper, use 2 Way Glue Pen to adhere the layer on to the glimmer paper - nothing else seems to want to stick to that sparkly stuff!
