Twinkle Twinkle Little Star


Here comes a card with best wishes for a baby boy :)

After a long time, I've tried to get quilling onto a card. So a short tutorial follows :)

I took a light blue patterned paper and cut out a circle. Cut and discard a part of the circle to give the base shape of a baby carriage. Then took a light blue quilling strip and stuck it to the edges of the carriage, carefully in shape. 

Using the beehive technique of quilling, made as many coils as you require to fill in. Now the reason to choose a light blue patterned paper as base is to not show up white empty space when you fill it with the quilled strips.

This is how it looks after filling the entire carriage.

I then quilled 2 circle shaped loose coils and stuck to the bottom. These form the wheels of the carriage.

To add more interest to the carriage, I've added pearl stickers around the borders.

The next step is to take an embossed light blue cardstock, distress it along the borders with Salty Ocean distress ink and adhered the baby carriage to it. 

I've then added 3 very thin strips as the wands for the stars. The stars are punched out and layered using foam tape to give some dimension. I also bordered the stars using glitter pen.

I then stamped the sentiment onto a different sheet of patterned paper, distressed the borders again and added to the panel using foam tape. Finally mounted the panel on to the base white cs and the card is ready :)
