MC Jan/13 Quill Fringing - Some People

My turn again and you guessed it - another quilled creation... Again this is a simple quilling technique since it uses a die to cut the fringe, then all you need to do is wrap a tight coil. BIG GRIN

side view
The main card is cream toned, side folded (5"w x 7"h). I used a Craft Concepts embossing folder (Weaving Block set) for the background, shifting it to do the full card front. Then lightly touched the high points with a sponging tool and Distress Walnut Stain pad.

Next layer is the lace piece (Just Rite "Lace Background"), stamped on cream cardstock with Versafine Vintage Photo and touched here and there with Black Onyx, then clear embossed. Cut close to the stamping and sponged with Distress (Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, lightly with Dried Marigold, and the edges with Walnut Stain). Adhered to card front.

Adhered the glittery brown ribbon.

The vase (Serendipity Stamps "Vase Set") is stamped on cream cardstock with Distress Pumice Stone and clear embossed, then colored with Pan Pastels using a Quilled Creations sponge tip applicator. Cut out and made a slit in the center vase to stuff my die cut branches through. Branches (Memory Box "Leafy Branch") die cut from dark brown cardstock.

PS a quilling friend gave me one of the gold edge Reader's Digest books, so the beige toned (as in not acid free...) flowers are die cut from these pages using a Quilled Creations "Mum" die, the darker one has the gold edging which you can't really see in the image, sorry. Rolled my Reader's Digest fringed flowers around tight coils of either brown or bright yellow paper. Adding a small rhinestone in the centers. The white fringed flowers are die cut from Arches Text Wove paper - a really great paper for quilling.

Stamped my quote (Quietfire Design) - same as lace background and clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinders Label Four, cut off the edge on the right side and adhered to card front with a double layer of 3D adhesive tape to make it really stand up.
