Making Christmas cards, do you participate?! I make a few, but not for everyone on my list! But here is a cute one for someone special (like maybe my next door neighbor!)
I started this card with just the idea of a quilled wreath. I looked around the internet for inspiration, but didn’t really find anything that caught my eye. So, I decided to create my own design. Which is easy to do with basic shapes and some quilled coils!
After my wreath was done, I knew it needed something else and that is where the bells came in! I took Chasity’s acorns as an idea and tweaked it. I glued 10 quilling strips together and then just rolled with it! Once I got the coil done, I stretched it similar to how she did her acorns. Then I SMASHED it! Which gives the bell it’s shape. I lined the inside with the glue, just like she did and let dry.
And even though, I probably won’t mail this card, I think you could. Especially since the bells are smashed! In your cardmaking kit there are some foam sheets that are to help cushion your card if you should decide to mail it. How clever!!!
