Hi everyone, Juliana Michaels here and I must say, I have completely fallen in love with the Graceful Season Quilled Cardmaking Kit. This kit is perfect for making a wide variety of cards for any theme you can think of. I choose to create a birthday card and coordinating gift using the kit because of some upcoming birthdays in the family.

I created my card by using one of the cards that comes with the Quilled Cardmaking Kit.  Next, I selected several die cuts to decorate the card. I like the polka dot banner piece and cut it into two pieces, placing one above and one below the framed opening.

I then created three quilled flowers. I glued the green swirls to the flowers before attaching each flower to the card with a glue dot. Birthday Greetings Quilled Birthday Set by Juliana Michaels for 3 Birds Studio

I selected a sentiment and adhered it to the inside of the card, placing it so that you can see it through the opening on the front. I love how these openings make the card a little more fun and interactive, but giving you a peek of the inside of the card.

To create my gift piece, I selected one of the shadow box cards and assembled it following the instructions that come with the kit.

Instead of the plain white background, I cut a piece of patterned paper to fill the opening. I then used one of the small journaling cards from the 6×6 paper pad and another strip of patterned paper to further decorate the base of the shadow box.

To embellish the shadow box, I created more of the same quilled flowers so that it would match my card. I used one of the quilling strips to give the look of grass along the bottom of the opening.Birthday Greetings Quilled Birthday Set by Juliana Michaels for 3 Birds Studio I then created two quilled butterflies.
