Eeeee!  It's so pretty!  I just love it.  I never learned much about quilling, so would you be able to make a tute for just this card?  It's absolutely gorgeous.

It's a beautiful card. A tut would be great...but I don't really know what quilling is.

Quilling is the art of rolling paper into different shapes and placing those shapes into a meaningful design.  Most craft stores sell the strips of paper and the slotted tool or a thin needle.


http://www.quilledcreations.com/QuillingBasics-SlottedTool.asp

As for a tutorial, you don't even need the slotted tool.  Just pinch 1/8in pieces of paper together until you have made the wings (make four). Glue the pinched part together.  Wrap another 1/8in piece of paper around a needle or toothpick to make the spiral.  Glue the wings and the body onto a piece of paper, at some tiny antenna.  Done.

Thanks!  It's just soooo cute.  I think I'd love to make a whole bunch with dragonflies, butterflies, and ladybugs.  I have a bunch of scrapbook paper - erm - scraps I could use.

I've never seen quilling done with that spiral you used for the body. Great idea!

This is beautiful!  Just when I think I couldn't possibly accomodate any more crafts, Craftsters post something I absolutely adore.

I'm coveting your card, fragmentidea.

lins has some other cute stuff on her etsy shop.  She is really good at quilling, I think we all need to urge her to list more cards because they will definitely sell.  ::peer pressure::
