Quilled Snowflake

I recently saw a tutorial for comb quilling and decided to give it a try!
Instead of making flowers with my quilled pieces, 
I turned mine into a wintry snowflake! 
(I didn't buy the special quilling comb, 
but rather a $1 hair comb that works just as well!)
To make the background I embossed my 
white cardstock with the knitted folder 
and lightly brushed a pastel blue paint over it! 

Supplies and Tools: Comb, Quilling Tool,
 Knitted Embossing Folder (Richard Garay), Blue Paint, Square Punch,
 Sharpie Marker, Kraft/White/Blue Cardstock

The idea for this set of cards came from a 
gratitude note card my sister-in-law sent me for Thanskgiving.
I printed off several birds from this
The background is stamped on a piece of typing paper
with one side folded back to
reveal the embossed cardstock underneath.
 I added a little bit of sparkle with rhinestones
 in the center of the bigger snowflakes.

Supplies and tools: White/Red/Blue Cardstock, Snowflake Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug-Provo Craft),  
Bird printables, Snowflake Stamps (Inkadinkado - Martha Stewart), Sharpie Marker, Square Punch
