Quilled Flowers and Swirls
(inside: May your birthday be filled with sunshine, smiles, laughter, love and cheer! Happy Birthday)
I’ve tried some basic quilling in the past and thought I’d give it another try here.
I used a few new (to me) quilling tools and techniques for this project. The purple petals (marquise/eye shape) and round accents (tight coils) were made with the Quill Ease motorized quilling tool (which I talked about HERE). The swirly “stems” were too thick for my slotted quilling tool so I held the ends with tweezers and hand coiled them. I tried out a quilling comb for the leaf.
This is the first time I attempted the large swirls, and I found it challenging to glue them down exactly as I wanted them (the basic shape and to get the strips evenly spaced). The problem is that once the piece (with glue) touches the paper, you can’t really move it or you have blobs of glue everywhere. I have a whole new appreciation for the amazing, intricate designs I see on Pinterest! I definitely need more practice!!
The pre-cut paper strips were from a pack by Quilled Creations. The card stock used for the card base and panels was Gina K Pure Ivory and Wild Lilac. The sentiment on the inside was from the Birthday Duo stamp set by Gina K Designs.
The challenge over at The Paper Players is “Clean and Simple: flowers” where we are to use a flower on a CAS design.
Thanks for checking out my card project!
