The idea of giving cards to express sentiments dates back to the ancient Chinese as well as the early Egyptians? These card making ideas originated in order to send messages of good will in the new year or greetings sent by a messenger. The ancient Egyptians would write messages on papyrus scrolls. Europeans got on board around the fifteenth century, with Germans using thin pieces of wood to express greetings. Though using papyrus and woodcuts aren't quite as popular in modern times, the idea is the same. We use greeting cards to send our thoughts for holidays, personal important events, sympathy, and "just because." Now we can make a card from scratch using paper, stamps, and embellishments. We can also simply press "print" and get free printable cards. Few things warm a heart more than receiving a thoughtful card in the mail. Sure, times have changed, but card making has been a part of human culture for longer than most of us realize.

This is a different take on quilling than I've seen what with filling in a shape. I like the appearance it gives as well as the dimensionality! I can see technique of quilling being used with other shapes like balloons and maybe stars. I like the idea of being able to do some of this as lap work while I watch my favorite television show. Thanks for sharing!

What a way to add some texture to a Valentine's card. I like that you can make this as kid friendly as you want. You can also make them sophisticated to give out to friends and someone special if you like. I can think of a few people that would appreciate a card like this one.

I have never tried quilling, but admit that the projects are extremely pretty. I may have to try this new-to-me craft in order to create embellishments for my own paper projects. This tutorial makes quilling look like something that would be fun to try, not super expensive to try and would yield some nice decorative details to add to projects. The card depicted is pretty!
