I love journal cards and yet I do not put any journaling on my scrap pages and projects. I do not use them for journaling at all. I find they make wonderful, quick greeting cards. I have created a video to show you how to turn Journal Cards into Greeting Cards.

They can be as simple as you want, as ornate as you want, as flat, as dimensional and as unique as you want. They are easy and really help stretch a budget.

I chose the Prima Debutante collection because I love the elegance of the collection.

In these examples, I used primarily the same core supplies to show you how you can take a set of journal cards and embellishments and stretch that crafting budget and yet make different cards.

My core set of supplies: 3x4 journal cards, 4x6 journal cards, 1 pack of flowers, 1 pack of butterflies, box of chipboard, sequins and lace.

Here is a short video

Card 1

This delicate pink card started with a 6x4 journal card that had some graphics on it. I did not want the graphics showing so I covered the graphics with embellishments. A great paper crafter's sneaky little trick.

Card 2

The 6x4 journal card is so lovely that I merely wanted to add subtle accents.
