Quilled card

I have a little project that I've been dieing to show you. I made a couple of things for Amanda and I want to be sure that she got them before I post them. I'm writing my posts ahead of time and scheduling them so it's hard to know for sure when she'll get the package. I think it's pretty safe to at least show you the card that I made for her.
 It's nothing super fancy but I liked the way it turned out. I made the flower pots and stems in photoshop elements then printed them out and glued on the quilled flowers and leaves. I'll give it a couple more days then I'll be back with the other thing that I made for her. Just a hint, it's another one of my cardboard projects.

This is perfect! Have you ever considered selling them on Etsy?!!!

Sandee said...

It's beautiful that's what it is. I love it. You should think about selling these kinds of things. I think you would do well.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Sheri said...

So cute! I agree...I think you should sell them.

This is very nice. I like the way you made the flowers pop out like that.

Yet another talent. I love the effect. I also agree that you should sell some of the things that you make.

It looks wonderful, Ann! All the layering and little pots are just the right touches with your quilling. I bet Amanda loved it.

Philippa said...

Lovely card, Ann! Don't you just love the potential of quilling teamed with computer graphics?

Alterity Button Jewelry said...

I LOVE that! My mom taught me how to quill ages ago (late '70s)...I forgot how much I missed doing it!

Jen said...

It's terrific, she'll love it! Now I'm itching to get back to my quilling patterns and do something (you're a bad influence, chickie ;o)

Bossy Betty said...

Love your quilling projects! This card is so pretty!

Nico Designs said...

I have wanted to try quilling but I doubt my fingers will let me manipulate something so tiny.
The card is beautiful!

Anne said...

That is so gorgeous. You should definitely sell those. Completely uncrafty people like myself would enjoy them.

Marg said...

I have to agree with everyone else. that you should sell those on Etsy or somewhere. They are really nice. We like them a lot. Then do one of Duke and that would really sell a lot.
Have a great weekend.

Ann said...

Marg, thank you very much. A quilled Duke is a very cool idea, I'll have to figure out how to do that
