Quilled Cardinal With Holly

Aside from cats, cardinals are the animal that I have created the most. This Quilled Cardinal With Holly is the fourth cardinal I’ve made and actually was the last. I do hope to get time to make some more at some point as they’re always popular on my website and Pinterest.

Probably the reason I like making them so much is that they are just beautiful. I get them at my feeders on occasion, but they are very skittish. I plan to create an SVG of some of my favorite cardinal photos so people have a template from which to quill their own. And, maybe if I grow a few extra days this year I will try to create an actual tutorial with the template. Those are very popular as well.

This Quilled Cardinal With Holly was made using a template I got from Cricut. He is roughly 8″ x 10″ and I used 1/4″ quilling strips throughout.

I believe that I outlined him using On Edge cardstock. And some of the wing detail was done with cardstock, too. Notice how thick the lines look…
