"Thank you" and bell-flowers quilling cards

Quilled Thank you card

I count myself fortunate that all of my friends and family members like and appreciate quilled greeting cards I create for them (or at least say so :). Let me show you some of the most recent ones, a "Thank you" card and a card with pink bell-flowers.

The "Thank you" card is another easel card. I made it for a very nice person my husband works with. This card is embellished with quilled flower and butterfly made of 1/8"-wide quilling strips. Its stopper was made using paper punches and mounted on double-sided adhesive foam. I've been learning some paper cutting lately, and used it to do the lettering for this card. I also experimented a bit with colors and papers. The card can be folded flat.

The second card is of the type called "Center Step Card". I created it for my mother's-in-law birthday. It has a very delicate and classic look in my opinion. I used paper punchers to decorate this one, too. There are quilled flowers in the center, made of 1/4"-wide graduated quilling strips. This is the first time I used graduated paper for a quilling project. The color of each flower changes gradually from pink to white, which looks beautifully. Size of this card is about 5 1/2" x 4" (14 x 10 cm). It folds flat as well. And if you want to make a card of this type, here is a good tutorial for you.
