Ray Of Sunshine Handmade Card 

Pineapple is the color of the month here at Imagine and it was so easy to create this card because they offer up so many fun products in yellow! I decided to create a giant sunburst! But, don’t worry  because you will not need a fancy die-cut or stencil to make this sunburst pattern, just a pencil, ruler and some masking paper.

I started off by cutting a circle from masking paper, removed the backing paper and placed it on a card base. I then drew a dot marking close to the center of the circle and drew lines radiating out from that point. I like to keep the spacing between the lines a bit random for a more free-form look at the end. Here is the fun part! Fill in each segment with whatever your heart desires. I used stamps, stencils, a variety of inks, irRESISTible Texture Spray, Radiant Neon Amplify, sponge daubers, markers and more. The possibilities are endless. Once I was finished with the rays, I removed the circle mask and colored it in using a Fantastix and All-Purpose Inks.
