Glittered Starburst card
By Susan Cobb
Designer Tip: Placing the stencil on Humungo Adhesive allows you to glitter the open spaces first, then remove the stencil and glitter the portions of the design that were covered in a different color for a beautiful 2-color design.
- Trim the card to a 5” square. With the card fold at the left, cover the card front with light blue cardstock. Cut a 4 ½” lime/red/blue patterned paper square and mat on red, leaving a 1/16” border. Glue centered to the card front. Cut a 4 ½” x ¾” red rectangle and mat on white, leaving a 1/16” border. Attach “Season’s Greetings” sticker to the center and glue across the card front, 5/8” from the bottom of the card.
- Cut a 4” square from the Humungo Adhesive sheet. Remove the backing and attach the adhesive square to white cardstock. Remove the pink layer from the top of the adhesive square and attach the stencil centered on it. Add red glitter to the open spaces inside the design, plus around the outside edges of the stencil. Press down on the glittered areas with a tissue or piece of scrap paper to adhere it well to the adhesive. Tap off the excess glitter and return it to the container.
- Carefully peel the glittered material from the stencil a little bit at a time, being careful not to bend the stencil. Once the stencil is removed, add white glitter over the open spaces left on the adhesive. Press down on the glittered areas to adhere it well. Cut around the glittered design, leaving a thin red border around the outside edges. Attach the glittered design to the card front, ½” from the top. Embellish with gold pearls as shown.
- Inside the card: Write or computer print the inside message on light blue cardstock, trim to a rectangle and mat on red leaving a 1/16” border. Mat on lime/blue/red patterned paper leaving a ¼” border at the top and sides, and a ½” border at the bottom. Mat on red, leaving a thin border. Cut a thin strip of Humungo adhesive and attach across the bottom of the oversized mat. Peel the top pink layer off the adhesive strip, then add red glitter. Tap off the excess glitter and pour it back into the container. Glue matted message centered to the inside.
