I tried this idea after viewing Gina K.'s blog. I liked how she trimmed the scalloped die cut at the edge of the paper. You can then use a rather large stamped image and trim it to fit your A2 size cards. You can use any style diecut, such as a Spellbinder's label's 8 or Labels 4. Just fit it at the edge and trim it! This style is nice to make because there are not too many layers so it mails nicely in a regular A2 invitation sized envelope. I still always put a card protector piece of cardstock over the card so it goes through the mail machines smoothly.
I love this sunburst style card! It is such a great way to use coordinating papers! The sunburst pattern is from a blog a friend referred to me.  Here is the link:Sun Burst Card Template © 2012, Andrea Walford, Paper Crafter’s Library; www.papercrafterslibrary.com
Andrea has a great tutorial on how to piece this together so it comes out so nice on your card! You can choose any occasion, any sentiment and any color to make it your own. I have used all sorts of colors using this pattern,  and all kinds of sentiments to fit the occasion of the card I choose to make. It makes such a bright, beautiful card!
