MC Apr/15 - Quill Tri Fold Card - The Heart Has Reason - HB
I've been cutting my own quill strips using my electronic cutter from Canson Ingres paper (white/off white) and loving it. so easy... and the paper rolls beautifully. If I color it, I usually use Distress Acrylic daubers because it applies such a nice thin coat and I can do some interesting streaking if I want. The leaves were done this way. The flowers were kept the natural color but then I pounced Distress pads on the finished flower prior adding the rhinestones. you can see all the details and descriptions etc, by clicking on any card image. Enjoy.

I'm using a new eCut file from Suzanne for the window piece available on the Silhouette onLine store  ("Pansy Card" ), and quote sentiment stamps available from Quietfire Design ( "Happy Birthday Plain And Simple" 7pce set); ("Twirl & Enjoy"); ("Just For You" 4pce set )("The Heart Has its Reason" ) it fits for these challenges:

This is beautiful - it looks so intricate - and I love that you cut your quilling paper on you electric cutting machine. I have tried quilling - I have given up on quilling. It looks fantastic but I just cannot manage it so I take my hat off to you! Thanks for joining us. Marina. Creative Cutting DT.
