I’m in the process of making another journal and I’d like to include a few journaling cards, those are basically cards with a nice picture on the front and where you can write on the back. What we need:
1 – thin chipboard from a cracker box, junk mail or heavy card stock as the base.
2 – old book pages that are discoloured, you can always pour coffee on it to make it look old.
3 – tracing paper, as frosty as you can get, the one in the photo is from our local dollar store and works great as it is not too see through, but enough to do the trick.
4 – images, I get them from various magazines.
5 – small embellishments like a stamp, die cut, leaf or a postage stamp ect…
I cut the chipboard to the size of the image and glue this to my book page.
Then I apply the tracing paper and give it a good burnish with my brayer.
Trim the book page and tracing paper and glue the image to the other side.
Select one of the embellishment and glue this in a bottom corner.
Last I would add lines to the back side of the journaling card.
A video of the making of this journaling card can be seen below:
Thank you for watching
Till next time
