Quilled Snowflake Card

Today's card was inspired by SusieB from the Cricut MB. If you have never seen her work, be sure to check it out HERE. Her work is AMAZING!!

Here we have a standard A2 size card. I used my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots folder to emboss the background. The scored lines at the bottom were made with my new toy the Scor-Pal. The words "Happy Holidays" are computer generated using the "akaFrivolity" font, most likely from www.dafont.com. (That's an awesome site for FREE fonts by the way!!)

The snowflake was hand quilled using 1/8" white quilling paper. I'm still a novice quiller, so don't critique it too closely. :) Quilling is "easy" but very time consuming, at least for me.

This card seems to be missing a little something, but I can't quite put my finger on it. (I mean besides originality and talent! LOL) If you have any suggestions, feel free to offer them! :)

Very nice work. I've quilled for over 48 years and can tell you your quilling is good. Your coils are well defined and there is no visible glue points.

If you want we're offereing free quilling lessons at Too Bad Dogs, Inc. Quilling. We'd love for you to join us.
