Happy b'day card with typographical quilling

When I was contacted to make a b'day card I got down to thinking about how to integrate all that the customer wanted in the card!!!!
The customers outline for the card
1) Card must have 'Happy Birthday Akhi' in the front.
2) Light blue colour should be used
3) A personal message

So after some thought I decided to make an easel card with a difference... this will be a picture loaded post so bear with me :)

The outer envelope made out of white thick board and used blue ribbon For tying and the stamp used is from Stamping bella that I had won from Jovita of Creativita :)

So this is the flat view of the Easel card. Used the white and blue quilling strips to make this card. As in all my typographical projects I printed out 'Akhi' on a blue cardstock and used Modified beehive technique to fill up the name. I made small flowers using blue and white strips and used rhinestones for their center.
Printed out the Happy B'day sentiment and went over it with a silver gel pen and put some pearls to the edges. I used foam tape underneath it to give it a raised effect.

As it is a easel card it stands up and holds its place because of the layered cardstock. Used some white felt flowers and stuck rhinestones to them. Stamp used is from Fiskars- Make a wish quote. Used brilliance Dew drop platinum planet to stamp the image.

This is the open view of the card with the quote the customer wanted.

The quote- 'The joy of stepping into another year of life is to keep smiling always and to spread true happiness all around forever'
 I printed the quote on blue cardstock and went over with it using silver gel pen.

Some closeups of the card :)

The order is being packed and will be on its way to New York today :)
Hope the customer likes the card as much as I loved working on it :)
