Dad – Typography quilled card

It was Father’s day yesterday and I wanted to make something special for my dad. He is the best father in the world. Given me things even before I have asked for, stood by me always, made me understand my mistakes patiently and most importantly made me the person that I’m today.

I decided to make a card with the word ‘Dad’ for him. I used a patterned paper for the background and then sketched the alphabets on it. Selecting colors for the card was a challenge though. I decided to go ahead with shades of blue, green and yellow to make the card look nice and fresh. 🙂 I just had a day to finish the card and hence I decided to use tight coils and quillography to make a quick but good looking card. So here are some pics of the design and the card. Dad loved the card and has already displayed it in his showcase. Btw, this is also my entry for the Indian Quilling Guild Challenge # 1 🙂 What do you think? Did you like the design? Do share your feedback 🙂   Dad - card Dad 2Dad 3

MOM is the word

Yesterday was Mother’s day and I had to do something special for my mom. I can’t describe in words what she means to me or what she has done for me. I guess this applies to all of us, no?
 
So this is what I made for her, a card with the word ‘Mom’ quilled. The card took me around 6 hours to complete. I used my mom’s favorite colors in the design just to make it more personal 🙂
 
So here is the sketch as well and the final design. Let me know what you think!
