Quilled Snowflake

Well, this is just a clean and simple card...not much to it really...but I am finding that I really love the clean and simple look and that I am liking using white card stock more and more...Just call me boring! LOL. This card shows my first attempt at quilling. I have always wanted to try it but never really would sit down and focus. Today I was not feeling all that good so I sat in my chair with the directions and took my time and played. It actually turned out pretty good then I took it one step too far and attempted to glitter the snowflake....not liking how "chunky" it looks, but lesson learned. You know how you feel when you took a great design one step too far???? Also I got to use a set of my new nestabilities...the lacey circle. Oh gosh I ordered 4 sets of new nesties...this is one. Then today at Hobby Lobby I got 3 other new sets in the clearance aisle...can you believe I was able to purchase Spellbinders Nestabilities for $8.99???!!! I grabbed 3 sets that I don't have. Well I hope your day was a great one...and that you have a Spooooooktacular Halloween!! Going back to sit in my chair and play with some more quilling! Thanks so much for stopping in to see me!
Hugs!
Vicki
HUGS!

The snowflake looks really nice, especially for a first try! I find them tricky to do because of the symmetry. Pretty card.

Wonderful job on your snowflake! I'm glad you gave it a try. I have enjoyed making them too, but haven't yet glittered any. Someone said to spray adhesive on the quilled snowflake and then dunk it in glitter. You might try that next time and see if it works better.
