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 11×14 shadow box . I hope I achieved the glamorous and classic look I was going for… I think so.
