About Me

Chertsey, Surrey, United Kingdom
Hello, I'm Jill - mother of three grown up children and wife to Geoff. I have been crafting one way or another for as long as I can remember. In the1990's I discovered quilling and in 2009 I began selling my quilled card designs online (https://folksy.com/shops/PaperDaisyCardDesign) - this continues to go from strength to strength. My blog "Paper Daisy Cards" features my handmade cards, quilled or otherwise! More recently I re-discovered rubber stamping and became an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator, showcasing and selling high quality paper crafting materials including rubber stamps, inks, cardstock, punches and dies. My blog "Paper Daisy Crafting" features my creations made with Stampin' Up! products, a list of all the papercrafting classes I run, all the latest news and offers and a link to my online shop , so that you too can join in the fun!

Quilled birthday card for men

Good evening everyone,

Another very late post from me. I do have good excuses though. Firstly, I've been putting the final touches to the assignment I've been working on so that's it's now ready to print and hand in. Hurray! I really feel as though I will now get my life back. Secondly, my youngest daughter borrowed my camera today and I've only just got it back - the photos I want to show you tonight were on the memory card in the camera!

The card I'm sharing tonight is a rare one for me - a card that's suitable for men. Like a lot of crafters, I really struggle with designs for male cards, especially if I want to make it a quilled card. The idea for this one came from one of my very good customers. She asked if I had any cards suitable for a man and said if not could I do one of my bunting cards in more appropriate colours for a man. Well, here's the result:

The original idea for the quilled bunting once again came from my very reliable source of inspiration, Diane Boden Crane. I did a workshop with Diane this weekend and again came away with lots of ideas for very special cards. I made a lovely card for my mum for Mother's Day which I'll share week.

I have this bunting card for sale in my shops but in much more fun girly colours, although you can request any colour scheme you would like.  I made a card like this for my youngest daughter's 14th birthday and she loved it - bunting is so "on trend" at the moment.

Hope you like it! See you next week,
