Summer Starburst Card

Send some summer fun with this starburst card.  It’s great for just saying “hello” or any occasion that you need a card for giving.  Change the paper, change the design, too!



Begin by cutting the following sized rectangles from 6 pieces of your favorite patterned paper.  Cut two at 2” x 1 ½”, two at 3” x 1 ½”, one at 4 x 1 ½” and one at 4 ½” x 1 ½”.

Then, place them in the paper trimmer from corner to corner as shown in the picture and cut them in half.


Cut a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of cardstock (pink) and a 4” x 5 ¼” piece (white).  Lay the pink one aside for later and begin by working on the white piece.


Add the pieces to the smaller rectangle using a tape runner.  You will need to play around with the pieces to get them to fit properly together.  Remember to leave a space in between each one.  The paper used for this design was,  “Let’s Polka, Mon Amie “6” x 6” paper pad by Lawn Fawn and” Beachside” 6” x 6” paper pad by Lawn Fawn.




Trim off all of the excess pieces using a paper trimmer so they meet at the edge of the backing.  Make sure to do this on all sides of the rectangle.

Adhere this piece to the pink rectangle that was laid aside earlier.




Cut one 2” circle from white cardstock and one 2 ¼” circle from black cardstock using a set of dies and a die cutting machine or a circle cutter and glass mat and layer them on top of each other securing them with a tape runner.

Stamp the sentiment on using a black ink pad.


Create a 5” x 7” card base from cardstock (black cardstock used) and attach the starburst using a tape runner.

It’s really easy to get creative with this card just by changing it up a little.  Be creative and add your favorite papers and embellishments this summer.  Just like with summer, card making is the time to have fun!

About Peg

Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today!
