First-time Quilling & Resultant card

My first attempt at quilling has taught me one thing (apart from the fact that I actually have a lot of patience)…that I love it. Hee.

I knew about it since quite a while. But it was my younger cousin sis who sort of got me inspired enough to actually do quilling myself. She’d made this beautiful quilled card, and I fell in love with the graceful art form. So I really do have her to thank. Mini…thank you :*

And aren’t I supposed to be studying? Right? I am supposed to be studying for my final year college exams…yeah. But then what can you do when your fresh, new quilling strips and slotted tool call out to you everyday and finally seduce you completely?

What can you do?

You quill. And make a card. And enter it in a challenge! Yay!

Here’s my card. Making this reminded me why I love card-making so much.

And so I’m entering this in BGC’s Shaped Birthday Cards challenge. Coz’ I love octagons :)

Oh, and you should really go there and see the inspiration cards…so many shapes for the humble b’day card. Whoa.

And now I should go and study again. *sigh*

      It was only making the individual pieces which took time (20-25 mins). Otherwise, setting it up was pretty much a 15 mins thing.
