Birthday Card

Made this card for a friend of mine, who turned thirty last week. Since it was the 30th, I accentuated the number.

I crafted the entire work on a white cardstock, then cut and glued it to a blank card in order to add some depth to the card.

I set out by drawing a champagne bottle with a pencil and then glued the quilling strips accordingly.
Here, I must mention that it would have been much easier for a first timer, like me if I started quilling from the inside of the bottle to the outside rather than the opposite.

I crafted the numbers and the cork of the bottle similar to that of the champagne bottle. I then placed the quilled paper swirls, drops and circles in accordance with the space. I used light colored strips for the numbers and bright ones for the rest so as to balance out the colors.

I stamped the words "happy birthday" on the inside of the card.

Lastly, placed a pale blue ribbon on to one side of the card.
