Quilled baby shower card



   I made this card on request from a friend and it gave me an opportunity to make a card for a baby shower. On the day of the baby shower bangles are put on the wrist of the would-be mother by all the female guests. This is done  to bless her and the unborn child . 

   My friend did suggest a bangle in quilling, I started off making a bangle shape with crimped strips. I finished the circle with a red glitter strip cut from a sheet to give the look of a bangle.The background is a gold paper layered on red shiny paper.
   Thanks for stopping by , Have a great day.

As angelin has said I always love the way you use the crimpled strips... Also I dont have any clue as to how to create a flower using crimpled flowers... I have seen you doing crimpled flowers ... .. if i use slotted tools to coil it...the crimpled strip straightens off ...Can you tell me how to do it.

anandhirajan said...

clever idea suganthi but I feel it would have been more pretty if you had done with green strips for the bangle.Because baby shower in India is associated with greencolor
