VSN



I love VSN on Splitcoast, but this weekend I only had time to make 4 cards, this was one of them.

You had to make a card with quilling. I used to teach quilling a lot a while ago and I got so fed up of it, I could never do any quilling. But I've had a break and I really enjoyed making this card, it only took me about 30 minutes all in.

So, I am determined to make more non-stamped cards, like quilling or teabag folding, but I don find myself going through stages. This stage is obviously scallops and cuttlebugging lol.

The scallops were actually made with my cricut and not scallop punches.

Details of card

sets used - Papertrey Green Thumb

cardstock - Almost Amethyst, Certainly Celery, Lovely Lilac, white

inks - lovely lilac

accessories - cuttlebug, cricut, ribbon, quilling tool and papers, slit punch

Ally, this is gorgeous! Love the flower and the little ladybug is adorable!!!

I have never tried my hand on paper quilling before. It looks like tedious work.

This is GORGEOUS. I have never tried paper quilling...I always walk by those supplies in the LSS...I think you have inspired me to give it a whirl TFS.
