New Year's cards, Part 2.

A couple of days ago  I shared this

Here are the rest of my New Year's cards (to see the other one out check this post).

I punched four evenly spaced holes with a small square punch on the cream paper and cut a paper strip (to look like a ribbon) the same width as the punch window and laced it through the holes (easier done than said). I cut out a V- shape at the ends to make it look like ribbon ends.
Next I glued the cream paper to my white card stock  and finished off the rest of the design.
For the first card (pink flower) I used the vortex quilling style, see a tutorial here. I hope my explanation is not confusing, like I said somethings are easier done than said.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for some birthday cards I have been working on.

    I've tried paper quilling before, and I know it's not easy. You did a beautiful job with these. I'm so glad you found my blog and said hello, and that now I have also found your blog. I hope you will come back and decide to follow my blog, and I will follow yours also. I look forward to seeing what else you will create. I'd also like to invite you to link up a card in our challenge at Word Art Wednesday - we would LOVE to have you. wordartwednesday.blogspot.com
