Ho Ho Ho and Happy Hanukkah! Not much time left until Christmas. How are your holiday plans progressing? I still have lots to do but am trying to take my time and relish the process. I've been especially thankful this year to be able to fully enjoy the season with my family and friends. Nothing like a bit of cancer to help reinforce one's priorities in life! I'm still carving out time to be creative - although most of those projects need to be kept under wraps for a bit longer. Fun stuff though, I promise. I'm looking forward to 2015!
Today I have a few cards that were created for a joint 3Birds Design and Therm O Web design week featuring the 3Birds Quilled Holiday Card Kit. Just look at all the goodies they pack into this kit!
I'm very new to quilling and my shapes are pretty basic, but it is a very interesting technique and I'm looking forward to experimenting with it more in the future. Here are three cards I came up with using the kit:
The first card uses one of the 3Birds round window cards as a base. I quilled the berries on the wreath die cut.
You can see the window a bit better in this photo:
The next card base is really unique - it folds up to become a shadow box frame. I love the way these look and the dimension is even better in person. The poinsettia is quilled using one of the pre-cut petal strips that comes in the kit.
The last card came together quickly because everything is pre-cut, including the quilling strips to create the flowers. Just roll them up, glue, and adhere to the card.
There are lots of beautiful examples of quilling on the 3Birds website. There is also a fantastic giveaway going on, so be sure to stop by the Therm O Web blog, leave a comment, and enter the contest.
Have a wonderful day!
