All is Golden...

I had a special request to make a quilled initial all in gold and creams.  I wanted it to be glamorous yet classic.  I found beautiful card stock in shades of gold. Some glittery, some shimmering, and some in a pearlescent quality with lots of different textures. I used my Cricut to cut out the lettering for the 50th and the date.
The date was very tricky to do because of the specialty paper I used. It began to split apart as I lifted it off of the mat.  Then with self cut strips in 1/2" width, I outlined the letter M and filled it with quilling. 

It is encased in an 11x14 shadow box . I hope I achieved the glamorous and classic look I was going for... I think so.


  1. Wow, Jen! It is definitely both classic and glamorous! It's beautiful! :)

    1. Thanks Nancy! It was my biggest project so far. What are you working on right now?
