ID: MC May/15 - Easel Quill Celebrate - HB  card
size:  7"w x 5"h (easel closed)

Created: May 19, 2015

I was in a mood to do one of these quilled words again. It's been a few years since I did one... Not that easy since this one had a lot of thin areas...

I'm using a sentiment stamp and flourished frame stamps from Quietfire Design and an eCut file available on the Silhouette onLine store

("Happy Family Days" 5pce set); eCut ("Celebrate")

I scored and folded to create my easel, then cut another piece of the mango colored cardstock for the easel front.

I eCut the word "Celebrate" from white cardstock at approx 7"w. Colored each letter using Winsor & Newton watercolor markers. Adhered a dark green 1/8"w quill strip to the edges of the word. This takes time.... the glue has to semi dry before you continue on to the next section and you can only do very small sections at a time. Then I used the beehive style of quilling and filled each letter portion, gluing it in place, then glued my word to the white background and adhered to card front.

Adhered a couple pieces of Sari ribbon. Then adhered the white strip at the bottom. This was a negative part of a die cut that was laying on my desk (Spellbinders "Floral Doily Accents" set).

Adhered some of my plastic bead flowers I created a while back (You can see the tutorial HERE) as well as the roses (Die-Namics "Heirloom Hybrid Roses") and the tutorial HERE.

On the floor: Stamped the flourish frame and sentiment onto white cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed, then fussy cut around the frame (ps there is a Spellbinders die that fits that shape...). Used Prisma colored pencils to color in the open spaces. Cut a piece of mat board a little smaller than my frame and adhered to back, then adhered it to the floor. It's a nice height for a stopper.

Added the pink pearl flourishes and the open die cut butterfly (Memory Box "Vivienne") cut from Paper Roots wrapping paper on white cardstock.
