The technique may look complicated but is pretty simple and there are several ways you can use in on a card. Just Google under either starburst or sunburst card and you'll see what I mean.
For my card I started with four 1.5" x 6" strips cut from my leftovers. Each one of those strip was cut at a diagonal from corner to corner. You will also need a base for assembling. Just grab a simple piece of copy paper. I cut mine a little smaller than A2 size because I knew I was going to mat it, but if you want it to cover the whole front of your card cut it to that size.
Next you're going to start assembling the pattern. I knew I was going to be adding a circle to the bottom left corner for my image so I traced the outside of my die so I could make sure everything else was completely covered with the strips. I used a Two-way Glue pen to add a spot of glue just to help keep my pieces in place until I had them like I wanted them.
You can use whatever kind of adhesive you like. I'm a liquid glue girl because of the humidity here in the south. I used my brayer to get a nice smooth attachment.
Once all the pieces were glued down I trimmed the piece to get rid of the excess hangover.
Pop it on your card base and embellish as you want. I added stitching to all my panels just cause I love to stitch on my cards, but it looks great either way.
