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.


  1. Awesome cards, love the ribbon, it adds nice touch to the quilling!!!

  2. Beautiful! Have you considered getting your site on Twitter too could do you a lot of good if you would like to expand.

    Oh, and Happy New Year.

    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.
    I hope to see you back at my blog soon to follow and play along!
