(4) Quilled Handmade Greeting Cards- Flowers




Asalam Waliykum,


Subhana Allah I have tried to write this post for the last 4 weeks, each time I start something comes up and I get distracted. The usual Life and all that stuff, so sorry for the long hiatus. Insha Allah back to normal this week. 
So back to the post, again more of my artsy stuff,  this time with a slightly different design. Bright flowers on black card stock. Also tried a new quilling technique for the flowers and leaves. It is a little complicated to explain. Hoping to purchase a camera to record some proper tutorials on Quilling in the near future, so stay tuned for that!

I really like the new technique, looks effective and looks intricate, it takes longer to do, so I decided to stick to a simpler design of a flower and a few leaves. 



I used a lovely thick card stock that I could only find online, and made the cards into C6 size using my own equipment at home. The envelopes I purchased in bulk it works out far cheaper to buy in bulk online then to make my own.

The strips are from online store of JJQuiling, I have now purchased my own shredder so I can now make my own strips. At the moment I make some strips but now I have a great nifty machine that is made for the job I will be able to save a lot more money and get any colour stripes I want in consistent size.  

This card can be altered to suit any occasion by changing the colour of the card stock  the petals and the design. I went for something simple initially and something that takes a reasonable amount of time to make. Some of more complicated designs can take up to 6/7 hours and if i was to sell those they would be pretty pricey. 

Do stay tuned for another post out this week, another card design I have done this summer.
