I have a good friend whose birthday happens to fall on Valentine's Day. (How lucky can you get?) So I decided to incorporate hearts into her birthday card. I have yet to master quilling but I came across a card on line with quilled hearts and thought that would be a perfect idea for my card.
My color scheme consisted of white, pink and black. I started out with white card stock for my base card. I added a layer of black and then a layer of soft pink. For my focal point I die cut a white panel using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and matted it with black. I stamped a tree branch from PTI's Out On a Limb Revised stamp set. The birthday greeting is from PTI's Birthday Bash Sentiments stamp set. I then adhered this panel to my card using dimensionals.
I made the quilled hearts in different sizes (took me a while) and drew lines of different lengths from the tree branch using Memento markers. Then the hearts were adhered to the ends of the lines.
I don't do much quilling at all although I love the effects. With more practice (and patience) I hope to master this art.
Hope you're having a wonderful day flowing with creative ideas. Thanks for stopping by!
