Quilled heart greeting card

Quilled heart greeting card

This is one of my old quilled cards made for Valentine's Day (sorry, couldn't show it back then). Colored copy paper, watercolor paper, and wrapping paper have been used for this one. The quilled heart was created using 1/8"-wide (3 mm) strips. This technique is called "multi-strip open coil" in Jane Jenkins' wonderful book on quilling. I like the way lower part of the heart resembles tree roots, although it came out unintentionally :) That's all for now. You might also like my more traditionally-looking Valentine cards.

Hi Inna:
The card is lovely. I like the white template you mounted the quilling on. Did you just draw the shape and cut it out?

very beautiful, You are my inspiration for using different types of paper. As I too have difficulty in getting quilling paper.

Thanks everybody!

@Gail
I drew the shape and cut it out after mounting the quilling, that is when the quilled heart was already glued down onto a white rectangle.
