Hi friends! I'm up over at the Bella Blvd blog today sharing some cards I created using their Illustrated Faith Basics collection! The cards I created will be perfect for sending to a friend who needs a pick-me-up!
For my first card, I chose bright and cheery colors. I started with a strip of patterned paper from the IF Basics Paper Pad. I chose six cute hexagons from the Daily Paper Pieces pack and added them to my card.
I added a sentiment sticker (from the Everyday Icons Cardstock Stickers sheet) in the upper left corner. I also added a super cute new Hexie Epoxy Sticker. To finish the card, I adhered the blessed sticker to the bottom and popped up one of the small Paper Pieces flowers using dimensional foam.
I created this card for a friend who is currently going through a difficult trial. I really loved this sentiment from the IF Basics Tip-Ins 2 pad and wanted to incorporate it onto a card. I trimmed off just a little bit from both the top and bottom so that the Tip-In measured 6" tall. I created a tall card base and layered on some patterned paper from the IF Basics Paper Pad. I mounted the Tip-In on to the card using dimensional foam
When making the card base, I created the inside flap deliberately wider than the top flap. I thought it would be fun to stamp a border that could be seen when the card is open or closed. I then embellished with a hexagon shaped Paper Piece, an Epoxy Sticker, and a sentiment sticker along the bottom.

I hope this gives you some ideas on how you can create encouraging cards using your Illustrated Faith scrapbook supplies! Even though many of these supplies were intended for other purposes (such as the Tip-Ins), there are so many other creative ways to use them!
