Easter Cards - Sunburst

I made a few Easter cards for my sale on the weekend.  I used the Stampin Up Sunburst Thinlit.  I cut a sunburst from polka dot designer paper in yellow at 4.00 x 5.25 inches and cut it aligned to the top left hand corner. I adhered it to a card front in a similar color.  The greeting was created with a metallic rose scallop circle, then 1 3/8" yellow smooth circle and then the greeting punched with the Stampin Up 1 1/4" circle punch.  The Easter layer was adhered to the scallop circle with 3D foam tape then this accent was adhered to the card front over the middle of the sunburst.  The second card with blue card, yellow sunburst with a silver scallop circle, a navy circle with a blue greeting.

I copied Brenda's card at QbeeQuest. Check it out here.

On this card I used the same textured yellow card stock.  I glued the yellow polka dot sunburst to the card front.  I cut another sunburst in brown designer paper.  I trimmed off the 4 corners to leave a cross.  It was glued over the yellow sunburst aligning the edges.  The sentiment combines a copper glitter scallop circle cut with the Spellbinder Nestabilities. The 1 3/8 inch circle was punched from dark brown card stock and the sentiment was punched with the 1 1/4 inch circle.

Note: I cut the sunbursts layers at 4" wide to maximize the 12x12 paper but I'm not sure it was worth it. Alignment is a challenge.  When the layer is cut at larger than the 4.25 x 5.5" then you can just trim to the card edge. Easy peasy.
