Introduction: Greeting Card With Easy Quilling Art

Quilling is the art of creating intricate shapes from strips of paper. The technique is simple: After a long, narrow ribbon of paper is rolled around a needle like tool (I am using toothpick), the strip is arranged with your fingertips into the desired shape, and then glued to make it permanent on any surface. Quilled add an elegant touch to cards for any occasion. Today In this tutorial, I'll show you how to make A Greeting card which is decorated by Quilling Art.

I learned a lot watching your video, like the use of a comb for spacing the loops. Loved the birthday banner inside and the peacock! The only thing that concerns me in using quilling for cards is: Unless it's packed in a box, don't the quilled designs get squashed in an envelope? Also, in the US, any mail thicker than 1/4" gets charged extra for postage.
