These are easy, simple and fun to make in one short sitting. You can print or stamp your imagine/text and with minimal quilled embellishing, these cards can be made quickly :)
NOTE CARDI printed a 50's jukebox and dance graphic and added quilled records. I glued a 36" (91.4 cm) black strip to a 10" (25.4 cm) neon piece and made a tight roll. Quilled musical notes would also be cute.
I lined the inside of the card with lime green cardstock. I used a 3/4" (1.9 cm) punch to make the round window at the top corner and a 1-3/4" (4.4 cm) punch for the raised "Thanks" piece. The quilled flower is made using narrow paper strips so this card would be good for mailing. If you have them, using round scalloped punches would dress up the card a bit!
I do nothing in moderation, so this card could probably use less hearts than I applied :) I printed a simple light purple swirl and added pink and purple open hearts I made using 1.5" (3.8 cm) and 3/4" (1.9 cm) long strips. I trimmed 1/32" (.8 mm) strips to make the spirals. I think they are easier to make using narrow strips.
I hope I have given you some new ideas to make a quick card. Enjoy!
