February - Technique

Hello all! This time at Christmas Card Throwdown we're offering up a technique challenge for you to try: Sunburst backgrounds.  Some people call them Starburst backgrounds. No matter which name you use for it, it's a great opportunity to use up some of your stash of designer papers!

Here's some inspiration from the Design Team:

As you can see from the Design Team's samples, there are several different ways to create the sunburst background.  Here's a link to one written tutorial: Starburst Tutorial    You can also find videos on YouTube. 

We hope you'll have fun with this technique!  Share your Christmas or wintry card with us using the the linky tool below.  You have until 7:00 p.m. Eastern time/midnight GMT Friday, March 3 to link your card.  Happy crafting!
