Quilled Thank You Cards (5 of 8)
Another variation of Card 1 and 3, but with a softer color palette and smaller scale of petals.
These quilling strips were cut on my Silhouette die cutter out of Canson Mi-Tientes. I chose this paper because the thicker qualities allowed me to carry the curves over a longer distance with more control. I find standard quilling paper to be rather thin, more suited to smaller designs. I learned cutting with/against the grain had an impact on the innermost coil, causing either buckling vs a smooth tight line. I suggest cutting one strip and testing it first before cutting the entire sheet.
A quick thank you to hubby for wrapping all the xmas gifts this year, leaving me free to focus on finishing my project on time. It's not his forté, but he took it on without hesitation.
