25 years of bonding

My first attempt

My first attempt

My first attempt
Another one for 25th wedding anniversary
For birthday.

I have been awestruck by the trellis card by Christina and wanted to try.

Opportunity knocked my door as my son's friend wanted a special card for his parent's 25th wedding anniversary.

I ventured into making the trellis card and made 25 quilled flowers to mark 25 years of togetherness and small buds representing the bond growing.

The couple loved the card and said that it was the best gift they ever received. I was happy that my attempt made someone's special day more memorable.

Though I don't get good card stocks where I live, I made two trellis cards with whatever I had.

These cards are first attempt and not perfect. But Christina has been an inspiration and her videos are very informative and clear and card making is made easy, simple and fun.

I usually decorate my cards with quilled flowers and these cards are made against order.

Two for 25th wedding anniversary and one for birthday. Hope you like my work.

Christina says ...

Oh my what can I say ... these cards are so lovely, ALL of them, and if this is your first attempt at them then you should be really proud of yourself.

I am not surprised that the couple one of them was made for are absolutely delighted with it. So bright and vibrant and really cheerful ... love 'em

Good morning Gayatri

Congratulations on making such lovely cards.

I have attempted to make flowers using the quilling method, and sadly I have failed to produce flowers like yours. The finished product is lovely as proves with your cards. Keep it up!

beautiful
by: Jenny Cottam

Oh Gayatri, your cards are just beautiful. I love the quilled flowers, they are really pretty. I wish I could make such a good job of quilling but I'm afraid I've not made good job when I've tried. If these are your first attempt at the trellis card then you've done a brilliant job. No wonder they were very well received. Take care and keep up the good work.
