Free Quilling Pattern Mother's Day Card

quilling quilled mothers day paper filigree filigrana

This is a variation of the card I made for you yesterday, just click this link if you want to see that card.

This is the same thought, a Mother's love is unconditional, this is a sweet way to commemorate that love.

I started with a white card blank (the size of the card is up to you - depends on what you have at hand)

The scrapbooker in me added some torn green strips of paper to get the look of grass with paper. I added a "Happy Mother's Day" printed on a piece of scrap paper.

I wrote in as neat a flowing cursive hand that I could the following words:

Love Unconditional Mom

I wrote them so that they were growing along the long side of the card (these are the stems of my flowers)

I then created flowers frowing from the top of these stems

The Love flower

  • 8 - 3 in (7.6 cm) Tight rolls arranged along the stem
  • I placed a pearl at the top of the flower

The Unconditional flower

  • 5 - 6 in (15.2 cm) Teardrops arranged with the rounded end in the center

  • A small "crystal" or "gem" was placed in the center of the flower

The MOM flower

  • 3 - 4 in (10.2 cm) Teardrops
  • Placed a pearl for the center of the flower

I found these cute heart shaped crystals and added one to the card

What garden would be complete without a butterfly?
Head and Body

  • 1 - 6 in (15.2 cm) Teardrop

  • 1 - 3 in (7.6 cm) Loose Coil for the head

  • 1 - .5 in (1.3 cm) strip cut in half 3/4 of the way down the strip. Glue the end that was not cut to the head and curl the cut ends to create the antennae

Large Wing (create 2 of these)

  • 3 in (7.6 cm) white strip glued to a 6 in ( cm) Red strip

  • Roll your coil so that the white is in the center, create a Teardrop shape

Small Wing (create 2 of these)

  • 2 in (5.1 cm) White strip glued to 3 in (7.6 cm) Red strip
  • Roll your coil so that the white is in the center, create a Teardrop shape
Glue one pair of wings to the body and the second pair of wings on top for the added dimension

Use the picture for guidance and placement

Have Fun!
