Blue Owl Greeting Card, Hand Quilled, Blank Inside Requires Wise Words

Details

My middle daughter made this owl greeting card by using quilling, a technique to curl thin strips of paper. The eyes she makes for her animal characters make their personality. This cute fellow has huge white, yellow and black quilled eyes. The owl itself is done in different tones of blue, with a beautiful background paper of multi-toned blue waves with hints of orange, pink and green tones, nearly resembling clouds or even mountains in the background. The inside is white and blank, just waiting for your wise words of wisdom to be written to someone special. The back is similar to the front, but without the owl and tree branch he is resting on. The card will come with a white envelope unless you request a different color, which are available. My daughter also packages them up in a clear plastic envelope for protection.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I'm not sure if my daughter got her inspiration from our annual "anniversary owl" or not, but it seems every year around July (near my husband's and my anniversary) a huge, beautiful owl that could be a great horned owl stays in some of our large trees in the yard - close to where the pigeons like to nest. He very often sits on one of our fences, allowing us a better view of his magnificence. That was when we first saw him, during a wind storm as he held onto our fence with his great talons and allowed the wind to spread out his wings as he sat there, surveying things with his cat-like face. The whole family had been watching a movie in the evening of our anniversary, and were taking a break to get snacks in the kitchen when I noticed him.

I can see why people are so taken with owls lately! This one was striking and memorable - as will be the occasion when this owl card is given.

More Info

Paper filigree, more commonly known nowadays as quilling, involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, pinched or shaped, and glued together to create fancy or fun designs. My daughter and I used to use long hat needles, like they did in years past, but more recently she uses a thin tool made specifically for quilling. The basic shape is a coil, whether wound tight or loose and the pre-cut paper is then glued in arrangements to form wonderful ornamental patterns or to resemble recognizable figures, like my daughter's owl. Quilling is quite often used for creating wonderfully intricate wedding invitations, unique birth announcements, greeting cards, scrapbook pages, wall hangings, magnets, boxes and anything else that you can imagine. I have even enjoyed making fun quilled earrings which I'll have to start up again soon.

Policies

Thank you for choosing All The Wright Stuff! My aim is to provide customers with exceptional value and customer service. Please let me know how I am doing :)

Payment:
I accept PayPal and most recently, PayPal Express, at this time. PayPal Express is very handy, fast and with fewer steps involved which is great for all concerned. And, even if you do not want or have a PayPal account you can still use PayPal to pay via credit card. If you are having trouble making a payment, please contact me. If payment has not been received within 72 hours the item(s) will be re-listed unless other arrangements have been made.

Shipping:
I ship first class within 1-3 business days from receipt of payment, unless it is a custom order. Your purchase will be packed with the utmost of care and I do try to recycle and reuse as much as I can. The item(s) will be shipped via USPS within the United States or to Canada, unless you contact me with your preferred shipping provider.

If you are in another country, and would like to purchase an item, or items, from my shop, contact me, and I will calculate postage for you. If you are willing to pay the postage I calculate, I will add shipping to your country on the item(s) you wish to purchase. Most recently I have shipped to the United Kingdom. The package arrived in nine days, just to give you an idea of timing.

Custom Orders:
If there is an item you see in my shop that you would like in another color, etc, contact me. I welcome custom orders. If I can make what you want with supplies I have on hand, I will not require a deposit. I will e-mail you pictures of the item(s) when it is done, and will list it if you like it. It will be shipped after you pay.

I love creating new items as well, so feel free to contact me with your request. If I will have to purchase supplies to make what you want, then I will need a deposit for the cost of supplies. You will pay the rest of the agreed amount once the item is completed, you have approved the pictures, and I have posted it. If for some reason beyond my control I am unable to finish your order, any deposit you have made will certainly be refunded.

Custom orders ship within 7-14 business days, depending upon how much time is involved in making it. A different color of similar items I have in stock takes much less time than an original design. If the item is large, heavy or bulky I may need to send it Parcel Post. I will calculate the postage for you before shipping it. If you are willing to pay the postage I calculate, I will add shipping to the item(s). Do you need something right away? Contact me to discuss putting priority on your order and shipping it via a quicker method.

Refunds and Exchanges:
Please contact me if you need to return an item. If we agree that an item needs to be returned, I accept returns within 15 days from receipt as long as the item is unused and in it's original condition. Your refund will be in the amount of the purchase price, and this does not include shipping cost. The original sale price, minus shipping, will be credited. All sales are final on special orders.

Please feel free to contact me if there is any problem with your order and I will try to make it right. I desire that you, the customer, be completely satisfied with your purchase. You can contact me about any questions you may have.

It's a pleasure serving you. Happy customers make me happy!

Thank you so much, and stop in again soon.

This handmade wooden spatula is all that I had hoped for. It's both lovely and functional. The grain is beautiful and the unique labor intensive sanding process makes for a satiny smooth surface. I like the extra touch of the leather hanging loop. I just used it for the first to saute garlic and olive oil and the design fits beautifully in my hand. Thank you for a special product, exceptional customer service, careful packaging and fast shipping.

Wendy, I LOVE the earrings. Can't wait to wear them. Thanks so much!

It's been a pleasuring working with you as a buyer and fellow artisan. Thanks for the great interaction and smooth transaction!

I cannot recommend Wendy and her family highly enough! Wendy's tatted items look beautiful in the photos, but my earrings that came which she custom made to my size requirement are just gorgeous! I will enjoy wearing this lightweight and lovely design over and over, I'm sure. Just exquisite work and quality!

My wooden spatula made by David, Wendy's 13-year-old son, is fantastic! It has a thicker handle than some of my spatulas and that makes it so much easier to hold and grip with my stiff arthritic hand...what a blessing! And the quality is top-notch as well. Obviously is quite committed to providing quality designs, just like his mother.

My many communications with Wendy regarding my order prior to purchase and then throughout purchase and receipt were exceptionally pleasant! It is obvious the Wright Family are interested in taking good care of their customers, as well as providing beautifully crafted items of the highest quality. I could not be happier and hope to order more "stuff" from the Wrights in the future!
