Another 'Bit Box' card

Good Morning Ladies,

I was so pleased to read that you all like this weeks challenge, I have so many 'Bit Box's' that I could make one card every day for a couple of months I think. Like Brenda I also have a box of 'PHD's' (projects half done)' and a box of experiments too!

Today's card is from my Stampin'Up! 'Bit Box', these papers are from the 'Country Lane' Collection,

Country Lane DSP

I have always wanted to have a go at a 'Starburst' card but I have always been put off by the amount of measuring and cutting that I have seen in some tutorials.  So I thought I would have a go at a much simpler method using my trimmer.  So easy that I am dying to share it with you all, so I will be doing a quick tutorial to show you just how simple it is. (if you want one)?!
I took a couple of pieces of matching paper, cut them to the size of my card base and then cut them up, I added adhesive to a piece of white card cut to size and laid out my pattern, adhering it to the background.  
I used Blackberry Bliss and Crushed Curry card to match with the Dsp, I then cut a border and placed it across the centre of my card.  I used the 'Stitched All Round' stamp set for my 'Thank you' and various layering circles to die cut it with.
The 'For your Kindness' sentiment card from the Delightful Daisy Stamp set and it works perfectly for this design.

I will also be making a video sharing my lovely Pocket Letter that Danielle made for me, it was so lovely.  I really enjoyed making it to be honest and I am looking forward to making another.  My next priority is to finish my ATC's for my swap with Karen.  

I hope that you all have a lovely, productive day, sending huge hugs to all of you that need them,

Lots of love too,



  1. Morning Ladies

    Sandra-what a lovely card. Bright & cheery which is just what I need on this wet & windy Tuesday morning.

    I’m hoping today isn’t too busy at work as I want to sort done paperwork out plus clear some emails. My crafty order arrived yesterday so I’d like to have a session in my craft room tonight-fingers crossed.

    Later I will e finishing an eclipse card for my boss It’s his birthday tomorrow and I didn’t know!

  8. Hello Sandra,
    Great starburst card, The starburst is a great way to use some designer papers that are to busy on there own, mixing them is a brilliant way to achieve a more subtle result - in my opinion anyway!
    I really don’t understand blogger, I have just noticed I’m going to be anonymous......again.
    Keeping my message short, had a long day and must get a move on and make dinner, if I sit here much longer I will nod off.

    Have a lovely evening everyone, Love Brenda xxx
