In June I attended a Shoebox Swap for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators hosted by my wonderful upline Brian King in Atlanta.  You can read about it on Brian’s blog.  I had learned how to make a Sunburst card the year before and decided that might be a good technique to take to the Swap.  Here is the card that I made for the Swap.

It was a hit at the swap and I quickly realized that even some demonstrators are not aware of how the card is made.  A number of people have asked for a tutorial on this technique so I decided to make a video.  Like many things this card is easy to make once you know the technique! 

A few weeks after the swap I wanted a card to send to one of the granddaughters who was at camp.  I decided to make a Sunburst card like I had made for the swap.  Since it was for a young girl I decided to step it up a bit!  I put pewter embossing powder on the You Make Me Smile piece (I would have done that for the swap if I had thought of it sooner!) and added some silver glimmer paper.
