Valentine Quilling for the Man in Your Life

Published by at 4:43 pm under Quilling Pattern,Valentine Quilling

I love shopping the clearance section of craft stores.  You never know what goodies you might find.  This was the case with a pack of unfinished wooden hearts.  I had no particular project in mind, but purchased them anyway — they were on sale!  As with all of my treasures, they went into my inspiration bin.

With Valentine’s Day on the horizon,  I starting going through my bin and rediscovered the wooden hearts.  The ideas started bouncing around in my head.  I could paint the heart red … decoupage a sentiment across it … add a quilled lace border …  
The result is this handsome Valentine’s Day card perfect for the man in your life.  The tailored color blocked squares of red and black contrast nicely with the lacy quilled border around the heart making this card flirty and fun.

    I think this is a really smart design, Charlotte! The quilling is great (of course!) and the black background sets off the red and white so well.
