Using index journaling cards...

Two posts in a row for me, I'm on a roll!

For my cards today on the Lily Bee blog, I chose to use 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 these products. I love to layer the Lily Bee journaling cards, so 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.)

I used a snowflake punch, along with the Christmas Cheer stickers to create a dimensional snowflake, and popped up the sticker in the center.

Supplies: Christmas Cheer line by Lily Bee (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, cut with the Holly Jolly die collection by Papertrey Ink.

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 line by Lily Bee (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.

I hope you enjoyed these journaling card ideas today! Don't forget to check out my City Sidewalks Christmas card kit in the post below.
