{Spotlight Project} Father's Day Cards With Deepti

Hello friends! Deepti here and welcome to my Spotlight feature. Today I am making Cards with Father's day on my mind. I wanted to get a heads up on these cards. I had that moment when a cool idea clicked my head for a fun way to create sun burst without using a stencil. I am not sure if anyone has used this before, 'coz so far I haven't come across anyone sharing it. Nonetheless, I am kinda happy with me :)

So I created a couple of cards, let me show you...

Step 1 - Here is trick to make sun burst... I took a transparency/ acetate sheet of the size near or around the size of an A2 card panel and simply cut out a "V" leaving a stencil like gap that will serve as my sun burst. I also cut 3 different widths of the same.

Step 2 - I then used a combination of inks to make my sunburst for two cards. I held the acetate sheet over the white panel, making one point as the center and I inked the sunburst

Step 3 - I then decided to use two focal images and stamped them in black ink. For one of the panels I decided to add the focal image with some dimension

To finish, I stamped the sentiment and added some splatter . Here are the cards one more time...

I have used  Sweet and Sassy Dad


That finishes my spotlight feature :) I hope you enjoyed it and will give this a try. Happy paper crafting!


  1. Great Fathers Day cards, Deepte...those silhouettes are wonderful and look dynamic against the colorful backgrounds. tfs-stay well.

  2. That,brown, yellow, teal burst appears to move when you scroll. Great idea, gonna try it. Might put a pin on the tip to hold it in the same focal place. Thanks for the inspiration, be safe, stay crafty!

  3. What fun background for your Father's Day cards....well done Deepti

  4. What a great way to create a sunburst pattern Deepti, and fabulous cards with that technique
    Stay safe

  5. Beautiful cards...love the pattern create with diy stencil...will try it out...

  6. Great share on how to create the stencil.

  7. I love sunburst stencilling, the background looks cool, one can never guess that it is using acetate. Thank you for sharing this wonderful idea. Great cards.

  8. Love the dad cards! The little silhouettes are so touching, yet they are perfect for masculine cards! Well done!

  9. Love how you created these backgrounds.
