Frantic Stamper just released a new die that cuts out stitched sun rays to make sunburst cards. The above card was made using the new Sun Rays Quilted Card Panel, but the two cards below were all cut out by hand before this new die came out. The new die makes it so much easier to make these sunburst cards; now I can have an even space between the triangular panels and stitching on them as well. I think the sunburst looks so much nicer with the actual rays between the panels like in the above card.
The bird is the Frantic Stamper Hummingbird. This is what the dies look like:
