Upcycled Quilling Card

Looking for quilling inspiration?  Why not upcycle old gift enclosure cards into new cards for friends and family?

Last fall I spent a lovely day with my friend stopping at yard sales and thrift stores.  At one very unique shop in downtown Villa Rica, GA, I spied a shoebox of old, unused gift enclosure cards.  I picked out several for only a dime a piece.  What a deal!

I love making quilling cards, but don’t make enough of the same ones to justify spending a lot of money on specialty stamps and supplies.  When I saw these wonderful little gift cards, I had the idea of using the colorful fronts as the sentiment part of a card.

The enclosure card was the inspiration for the colors and the actual quilling design which is a repeat of the whimsical leaf and berry doodle.

 

I love how this card turned out!  Not only did I save an old card from the trash, but I have a new quilling card ready for the next special occasion.
