Just popping in here quickly to show you another quilled card. Again, this was a result of a special request from a customer. She liked this card:
but asked if I could make it in red, as that is her mom's favourite colour. Once again, this pushed me to the limits of my comfort zone. Red is not a colour I use much, apart from Christmas and Valentine's Day cards. However, we agreed on a couple of contrast colours, to make the design work: tangerine and lemon, and this is what I came up with.
I would never have come up with this colour combination on my own, but now I really love it. On this design, only the first panel is quilled, as otherwise the card would not fold up flat. Here is a close up of the front panel. Simple but effective, I think!
The patterned papers are from Stampin Up (polka dot) and Doodlebug.
That's it from me today - if you are in the UK, wrap up warm. Apparently snow is on its way.
