Long and Skinny

I recently saw a challenge on The Paper looking for Tall and Skinny cards.
How about long and skinny?  This card is 3 1/2 by 8 and fits in a #10 envelope.   I have been making starburst cards for a technique class and thought I would combine them for this challenge.  I have found the starburst design is great for all types of cards.  Once you put the starburst together you just add your sentiment for the occasion and some bling like the butterfly and you are ready to go.  There are several videos online that will get you through the steps to making a starburst card if you would like to learn them.  if you like the butterfly on the card, check out my Stampin' Up store where you can buy the Butterfly Basics stamp set or bundle which includes this lit dies to cut them out on your Big Shot or other die cutting machines.  Thanks for stopping by!
