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!

Paper quilling birthday card

Hi everyone,

Just popping in here quickly to show you another quilled card. Again, this was a result of a special request from a customer. She liked this card:

but asked if I could make it in red, as that is her mom's favourite colour. Once again, this pushed me to the limits of my comfort zone. Red is not a colour I use much, apart from Christmas and Valentine's Day cards. However, we agreed on a couple of contrast colours, to make the design work: tangerine and lemon, and this is what I came up with. 

I would never have come up with this colour combination on my own, but now I really love it. On this design, only the first panel is quilled, as otherwise the card would not fold up flat. Here is a close up of the front panel. Simple but effective, I think!

The patterned papers are from Stampin Up (polka dot) and Doodlebug.

That's it from me today - if you are in the UK, wrap up warm. Apparently snow is on its way.
