Blue Vine Quilled Card

Hi all, here is another card with a quilled front. I was looking through my stack of paper and came across this cream colored one with a vine with blue flowers that looked like they could be quilled. So I recreated the vine pattern and used light yellow pearls for the stamen in the flowers for a little extra bling! Next, I layered that onto a coordinating blue card stock. I went looking for some ribbon that matched and found this wire edged graduated tone ribbon in the box that held my ribbon flower supplies and it matched perfectly. There wasn't really any room for a bow so I just looped it twice and ran it under the quilling mat layer.

Next I used the standard scallop and circle Nesties to make the medallion with the sentiment "Thinking of You", which is stamped in Brilliance gold inkand is popped up with dimensionals. The inside of the card is decorated with two strips of the DP and small punched flowers out of the blue card stock. I enjoyed making this card and will have to take a second look at my DP to see if there is another great quilling pattern there! I still have to go get the right light for my photo box so there isn't that pinky tone!!!! Let me know what you think of it, I'd love to hear from you.

Until the next post,

So elegant! I wish I can be as creative. My creativity is not functioning well for me at the moment, unfortunately BUT I do hope I can come up with something as beautiful as your quilling one day! :)
