How about a little decoupage?
To make this card, I used a card blank with a pre-cut oval cut-out, and layered some torn-up newspaper shapes so that they showed through behind the oval 'window'. The newspaper I chose was a gardening supplement, which included a nice photo of a festive wreath to go in the centre of the design. Then I just added a quilled holly motif after the layering glue had dried, and put a little silver decoration in each corner of the outer card face.
It only took a few minutes to assemble the decoupage, and I'm really quite pleased with the result. Here's what it looks like inside the card:
I think that colourful quilling would look very effective on top of plain black and white newspaper text, too, without needing to find a suitable picture.
By the way, my husband commented this morning that I ought to change the name of my blog from 'Quilliance' to 'Dalliance' because I spend so much time on-line! Cheeky, I know - but I had to laugh!!
