Take A Sunny Spin! May Club

Sunburst Technique
 Have you ever lost a week?  I've been ill all week, but am on antibiotics now and beginning to recover.  May 1st was my club and I couldn't attend, but I had the projects ready to go so Shelagh and Peggy taught them to the group.  Thanks sooooo much Shelagh and Peggy!!!!

I totally cased this card from Sherri Gross.  I had never seen this technique before, but then I found another card by Yapha Mason using it.  I couldn't find a tutorial on the technique, so I e-mailed Sherri.  She said some people use a template, but she just cut 4 pieces of dsp at 1" x 4" and cut them diagonally from corner to corner and laid them over a 5-1/4" x 2" base piece of card stock until she liked it, then adhered them and cut off the excess. 

It finally worked when I used wider strips of dsp, 1-1/2" x 4", cut diagonally and placed them on a 5" x 2-1/2" base piece, starting in the middle and working my way out.  I scored the base piece at 2-1/2" and put snail on one half at a time and layered on the dsp, butting each piece up against the next, then adding snail to the other side and layering on the dsp.  Finally I cut away the excess dsp, using the base as a guide and finished off the card.

It's been years since I've made a penny spinner card.  I was inspired to make another by Dawn Olchefske's great video.  Warning:  these cards don't mail well.
