Cardmaking : Quilled Hearts Card Tutorial
I know its sort of boring to see similar posts at a go and trust me its even more boring making them! As you might know I have recently taken the plunge into cardmaking and my cards are very simple to make with hardly any element or twist but I loved making them 🙂 This heart card is very much different from the Confetti hearts card (HERE) that I did earlier since this one is a Quilled card and also I have used stencils to make the background. If you havent seen my previous post on quilling basics HERE, please do check them out because you will be needing them to make these quilled hearts card.

Step by step Tutorial on How to make Quilled Hearts Card :
I first went about making the quilled hearts for the card since I had been quilling continuously for a while then! For making the quilled hearts, first make loose coil like below and pinch them at a corner to get teardrop shape.
I had previously shared a very detailed tutorial with little secret tips on making these perfect quilled teardrop shapes which you can refer to HERE.
Once you have two quilled teardrops, all you need to do is to stick them together. I would prefer having them with the coils slanting towards center line but the other way is okay as well as you can see from the two different hearts on the card.
Now coming to the quilled hearts card base, I have only one base layer for the card for which I have used a white A4 cardstock folded to half. I used rangers distress ink in the shade spun sugar and heartwall stencils to create a light hearts background on the card base.
I left a vertical space thats is fully blended with distress ink spun sugar where I wanted to place my quilled hearts and stamp the sentiments.
I felt the space was too empty looking so after adding the quilled hearts and the “always sweet” sentiment, I added a bakers twine across along with a bow.
This was officially my first try at stamping and as you can see its bleeding crazy :P! I did not probably dry out the stamp after using it for my first use!And here is a close up view of the quilled hearts and ofcourse the pathetic stamping 😛 !
Hope you guys liked my card 🙂 Will be trying more of these but Im yet to get hold of that creative genie in me to push me harder with nicer (is that a word?!) designs 🙂 Till then see you around 🙂
