Thoughts from Black Ribbon Society Co-Founder and Artist (Creator) Jesse Young:
What I like best about these handmade-quilled cards is their simple-elegance. The small quilled-hearts that make up each big-heart card design remind me of the intricate-natural design of roses…you know the overlapping of the rose-petals that spiral out from the center?! I feel that this rose-like aesthetic lends well to the Valentine’s theme, and that the 3-D sculptural aspect of quilled cards makes for a very contrasting, dynamic, and solid feel…which, to me, make these cards a superior choice for any Valentine’s Day card/gift giver!
These cards will take any Valentine’s day gift up a few notches for sure, OR I am proud & confident enough to say they are substantial-enough to stand beautifully as a gift unto themselves.
If you want a card that will “stick-out” for sure, these are your best bet!
Each cards is unique which is befitting, because each love/relationship is unique!
All paper used to make these cards was hand-cut by me, with the exception of the main “body” of the cards…each quilling paper-strip was cut, quilled, & glued one-at-a-time. The main heart shape of each card was also hand-traced and cut-out by me.
Each card is made with very sturdy cardstock to guarantee stability and to be wrinkle-free. Another benefit to my application of such heavy-weight paper is that these cards have the ability to stand-up (without any aid)…so you can proudly display them anywhere!
Each card is one-of-a-kind due to the size of each individual small quilled-heart, that is, the difference in sizes made the small quilled-hearts fit differently around the main big-heart design.
Re-purposing NOTE: I hope that all recipients of these cards will hold on to them (as is) for years to come, but I wanted to mention that the quilled-heart design will make a great ornament…simply cut the design out from the front of the card, attach some ribbon or string and viola!, you have given the quilled-Heart a new life! How Eco and creative is that?! :^) You could even add a photo to the center if you are so-inclined.
