Birthday Card: Quilled White Flower against Embossed Purple Cardstock

IMG_6917

Background: Plain purple cardstock that I painstakingly embossed against an embossing plate (AE 1217) using Fiskars Dual Tip Stylus. I said painstakingly because this was the first time I tried this method and the effort of tracing the stylus against the plate was quite tiring. But the end result’s all worth it.

Borders: Both top and bottom borders are giftwrapper pieces.

Accent: Quilled cones arranged into a set of flower. I’m not really particular when it comes to my creations so I usually come up with flowers that may or may not exist in real life. Te he. The leaves on the left side were made through paper-folding while the one on the right and the swirls were quilled.

Sentiment: Birthday wrapper cut-out. I then added a giftwrapper piece with stitch effect as its accent.

To finish this off, I added a metallic purple pink butterfly.
