spring cards

Hello everyone! We’re back with another edition of fun with cards. Today, we are featuring the Large & Medium Journaling tags on spring(y) cards. I love these. They can be used as elements, embellishments or as the base card itself! I’ll show you a few samples:

 so proud of you: on this card I used two journaling cards. I cut the flowers from one to use as embellishments and put them on a medium sized one. I softened the grid look by adding a piece of vellum, then used a lil’ snippet as the sentiment.

 thank you very much: this an example of how you can use a journaling card as a card base. It even has a spot for the sentiment (which I typed with my typewriter)! Love đŸ™‚ I used my die cut machine to cut a flower vase, then added string and flower brads to finish it off.

so lucky to have you: This journaling card has a beautiful, subtle floral pattern in it. I decided I needed to embellish it without covering it. To do so, I added a big 3d flower big enough to make a statement, yet not so big that it will still show some of the background.  A simple doily and some brads added the perfect final touches.
