Quilled Anniversaries

A couple of commissions today and I have finally done some quilling.

Quilling has been very neglected this year, something which I must definitely make up for next year.

These two cards were for 2 different people and I resurrected a design I haven't done for ages.

The design uses a little filigree, some fringed flowers, folded roses and some little 'normal' quilled flowers and leaves in between.

The Ruby anniversary obviously has touches of red and some matching strips added to the edge of the card.

The Silver anniversary has silver bells and the white flowers are edged with silver too.  The middle of the fringed flowers are tight coils that I have dabbed with silver ink but the folded roses are made using grey paper.  Silver paper has been added down the side of the card like the ruby card.

Peel offs used for the sentiment in both cases.

For a spot of diversity tonight I have just made my first Ferrari/Alonso birthday card - to follow soon!


  1. How nice to see some quilling - these are both lovely and I'm sure they will be much appreciated. Will be looking out for your next creation.
