Spring birthday card with quilled flowers
This is my new birthday card. With paper filigree, as usual. You can find the instructions for making the base here, although I used the template from this Russian blog. You should use thick paper for it, since the quilled decoration is pretty heavy and the card may collapse. I had even to support it with a peace of card stock, attached one end to the bottom and the other end to the reverse of the bouquet.
I used pattern edged scissors to cut the background, hand-cut paper strips for the quilling, and a gel pen for the lettering.
this is wonderful! I thought the card was resting on the envelope in the first photo...then I scrolled down and discovered it was such a unique fold. Love this!
Very fresh and lovely - thank you for sharing such a great new template idea!
the quilling is very lovely too - beautiful lines to the design because of the layers and color balance.
Unfortunately, I can't write step-by-step guides for everything I make. You have a link to the spring card template in the post and a lot of quilling tutorials you can use on my blog.
