Today we have some samples of how to use those fun Lily Bee Index Journaling Cards on greeting cards! There are so many ways to use them. First up, we have Patricia Roebuck's gorgeous cards.
Patricia says, "The journaling cards are one of my favorites. The sentiments and images help create the design for cards, layouts, and projects. They add color and interest, and even a little pocket you can create to tuck tags and even a tea bag into. For the “feel better soon” card, I kept it simple, letting the mason jars and the sentiment I created be the focal points. For the “Happy Day Today” card, I used the journaling card as a base to add lots of layers under and on top. Two very different cards using a very versatile product."
Supplies: Autumn Spice (Journaling Index Card), Persnickety (Finicky Paper, 6x6 Tiny Tablet)
For my cards, I chose the Christmas Cheer line, as I just can't get enough of this line! Red is my favorite color, so I keep coming back to this line. I love to layer the journaling cards. Here I've layered a chevron card under the "25" card. (The chevron card is actually upside down, but I love the design of the chevrons and wanted to use that in my card design.)
Supplies: Christmas Cheer (12x12 paper, index journaling cards, stickers, 6x6 Tiny Tablet). Other: red cardstock.
On the next card, I made the beautiful Lily Bee journaling card my focal point.
To highlight the journaling card, I placed a punched 2" circle from patterned paper behind it and added some die cut holly. I saw a greeting card in a store that had 2 shades of holly for each leaf, and I loved how it looked, so I trimmed the holly in half and pieced them back together with light and darker green patterned paper from the Christmas Cheer line. The card front is then wrapped up like a little gift with twine before adding it to the cardstock base.
Supplies:Christmas Cheer (12x12 papers, Index Journaling Cards, 6x6 Tiny Tablet). Other: twine, holly die by Papertrey Ink, tinsel, 2" circle punch, corner rounder, hole punch, white cardstock.
