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.
