A quick post tonight. This card was made strictly to instructions laid down for Docrafts Creativity's support for Cancer Research and these are 1. the card is to be A6 in size; 2. any theme using products of choice; 3. the inside of the card is left blank - difficult for me but I did it.
The design is based on an idea from Kristina Werner, Garden Girl at Two Peas In A Bucket and you can see the demo on YouTube here. Kristina's design consists of making a pattern by drawing 'sunrays' radiating from the left bottom corner on copy paper, then cutting the pieces out to lay on the DP and tracing round the outline of the pattern piece before cutting.
If you are thinking of following Kristina's instructions for cutting the 'sunrays' my advice would be to number the sections as well as labelling them with the paper pattern to be used - makes it so much easier to piece together the sections. Also, it's a good idea to erase any pencil marks - sounds elementary - but I forgot and once I'd run the glue tape round each piece the pencil was nearly impossible to remove without making the most awful mess :-( Fortunately, not all was lost as the addition of the ribbon detail covered it up nicely!)
