Embossed and Quilled Card
Posted by joaustin22, 05 Sep, 2011
Combine a textural inlaid embossed background with delicate quilled embellishments to make this pretty card.
Cut out different size circles using the nesting dies and glue onto a piece of cardstock. Trim to around 7 x 5 inches.
Place this completed panel into your embossing folder and run through the Big Shot to create an embossed background. Use a file around the embossing to bring out some of the white core.
Layer onto a piece of green card and cut to leave a 5mm border around the edges. Attach this green layer onto the front of your card blank.
Stamp your sentiment in black ink and colour using the Papermania pens. Decorate the swirls with short quilled pieces of paper cut to fit the pattern. Glue these pieces in place with Tacky Glue. Where the edges of the quilled shapes meet the wording, trim to an angle with scissors.
The petals are created by using a ½ strip of white paper and loosen to the second size circle on your quilling board. Glue the ends and shape to a marquise. You will need eight petals. Run a pen over the top to create a flush of colour.
Create various sizes of tight coils using ¼ strip salmon, ½ strip green and 1/8 strip yellow.
Stick the flower together as shown and place onto the centre of the card.
Mount your sentiment towards the bottom of the card.
For the coils at the ends of the plaque, quill a loose coil using a 8cm length of yellow paper.
For the centre of the main flower, create a tight coil using alternate 1/3 strips of lime and salmon papers.
Create a variety of different flowers using different size circles and shapes. Attach these around the card to finish.
