Card Creation

I love making cards. I have always wanted to learn more about quilling, so I bought a book, found a design, took it to a crop last summer and spent about 5-6 hours creating this card. I loved the look but because of how long it took me to make it, I will NEVER give it out! ha. I keep it tacked to my message board so I can see it every day and decide IF I will ever do another detailed quilled card. I'm sure if I did keep creating cards with this technique, I would be able to whip them out in way less time but haven't attempted it again. What technique did you try "once" and not again because of labor?

Quilling ;) Except that I did it as a project with my then 5 year old daughter! Talk about wanting to pull your hair out but needing to look cool as a cucumber at the same time :)

I do really appreciate those who can quill and I will leave them to it!

Gorgeous card, by the way.

I remember you working on that card at my house. It turned out wonderful.
I have tried the tea bag folding that Janet does so beautifully and I still don't understand why my don't look the same. Well OK I do, talent vs no talent in the paper folding department.:) She can fold and make beautiful cards and I will watch!

Marie - It's a masterpiece! I've always been curious about quilling - it looks so beautiful. Sounds like I better leave it for the pros.
