Renewing the Marriage Vows - Anniversary Card

Last October, our marriage turned 20. That's a big number! A roller coaster journey that has taken us together changing countries 7 times. So this big special occasion needed a very special card!

This card took me so long to quill. The orange rays coming out from the heart are made by gluing 2 paper strips together to give it a stiffness and then just glued down. The part where it pierces through the letters LOVE, I first quilled the letters and then stuck the orange rays splitting them and sticking further to give a continuous look. The scrolls and lines inside the heart were again painstakingly done. If you look closely at the centre top right within the heart, you will see tiny strips flaring into a spire all continuously increasing in length. The tutorial for making the stars is coming up soon.

I would say this is my most intricate work up till now. Hope you like it!
