Sunray Slimline

One of the techniques Yana showed in Crushing on Cardstock involved using Sunrays with dies. I do not own the dies, so off to Google I go searching for a template. The one I found is one I have used several times from Kristina Werner in 2012. Here is her blog post link with the template to download: https://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/sunshine-rays-card/

Sunray Slimline

My cardstock is SU Regal collection colors. When all of the rays were completed, I used a die cut from Pink Fresh Studio to cut the entire set of rays. I loved the card Yana created in the mini-slimline size, but my rays seemed to need a larger size. This particular die set was gifted to me from someone who doesn’t like the slimline size, so I said I would give the die set a try. It is a fun set with two sizes of the pattern I used here and a few dies with no pattern, which I used for the black piece. The card base is Ivory by Gina K Designs along with the butterflies and greeting.

I added the butterflies from a My Favorite Things set called Spread your Wings. I added color with markers close or the same as the cardstock. I added Nuvo drops rather than sequins. There is also the same shimmer added to the butterfly bodies and a lot of shimmer on the wings.

I enjoyed making this card. I am enjoying what I am learning in the class and will hopefully have time to create more cards with techniques and ideas from the class.

    1. Thank you! I did enjoy the sunrays as they were easy to create with the template. Not sure I would use dies enough for the cost.

  1. This is a beautiful card Lisa! Love your rich rays behind the pretty butterflies. I can definitely see why you chose the slimline and not the mini to show them off.

    1. Thanks! Yana has a video on her channel recently that is very similar to what she is teaching in the class. She loves her die cuts.
