Lovely card for Lohri special
(Faridabda, Haryana, India)
Lohri festival - special quilled card
This is paper quilling card. One more thing I would like to say is that one should have patience while making quilled cards.***************************
Happy Lohri to all of you.
Thank you for sending me a picture of your Lohri Festival card. You know, I was unfamiliar with your festival so had to find out what it was all about. It looks like it is a harvest festival? No wonder you chose pretty vines and flowers for your quilled card. It kind of reminds me of Thanksgiving.
I like how you have made almost thistle like flowers by quilling finely cut paper strips and wrapping them in a wider, shiny band. They look very effective.
You could make some of those based on my paper daisy
method, couldn't you. I think that is how you made the flowers that are standing up, only wrapping them with shorter pieces of paper? And the scrolls are made by allowing a quilled piece of paper to relax, then teasing it out a bit more to make wider swirls.
Very nice, Vidhi! And you are right, patience is a very handy thing to have when making pretty quilled flowers, but I think practicing also helps a lot!
Enjoy your celebrations with your friends, and happy papercrafting too.
