Well this turned out to be a non-exciting weekend. It was very cold so we had no desire to go out for a walk……I actually haven’t been out since Thursday! I did a bit of scrapbooking and I did manage to finish doing the satin stitching on the raffle quilt I’m donating to the Friends of Rondeau at Rondeau Park for their annual fundraiser……..and then I got hit with another attack of the brain disorders and Sunday was the worst day. Today they are less but my speech is terrible. I repeat words about 6 times at the front of sentences and then I add about 3 syllables to the end of the sentence. It made no sense to go to quilting at the church or out for lunch with the Lunch Buddies either. Darn. I was so looking forward to both. Oh well, another time then.
Today’s card is another stash buster card.
This is starburst pattern…..so easy to make and yet they turn out so nice. First cut a piece of cardstock the size that you want the piece to be. My card base was made from pink cardstock and is 4 ¼” x 5 ½” so I cut the piece of white cardstock 4”x 5 ¼” which leaves a slight pink edge. Then cut pieces of paper in about 1 ½” strips and cut them from corner to corner on the diagonal. Start in the centre and glue one piece down (you don’t have to start in the centre but I did on this card) and then start gluing down different strips until the white is covered, always starting right at the centre. Turn it over and cut off all the excess….and ink the edges if you like…which I do! For this card I added silver peel-off strips between each joint and a fancy silver one along the bottom. The butterfly is also a peel-off and it was mounted on a piece of plain green and then I cut around the shape and added it with a dimensional glue dot. The sentiment is also a peel-off. I made another one starting at the left edge as well but I’ll save that for another posting.
That’s all for a cool Monday, January-25-16,
