My friend, Quadira, showed a group of Toastmasters how to make a lovely journal on Monday night, so I thought I'd share the front of my journal. This is the type of journal which is made with a regular card and matching envelope size. Pages are inserted and the holes punched out and tied with string. I had never made this style of journal and it was fun to see how it all went together. I wanted to cover up the front of my card, so I embossed this flower and found a stamp & die package I had on my desk with some delightful bird die cuts from a 3D embossing folder. I had already water colored this bird and it was perfect.
We covered the envelope with patterned paper and created our individual and unique journals. Thank you to Quadira.

I wanted to try out the 3D embossing folders, so I ordered a Sizzix Texture Embossing folder to test it out and I am quite impressed with the depth of the embossing. I assume most brand named embossing folders would do the same.
Because I wanted to quickly do a card and see how this would work with distress inks, I sponged Shabby Shutters over most of the card, defining the vining and leaves more and applied the Abandoned Coral distress ink to the blossoms. It worked out fairly well, much better than in the photo, in fact.

I know everyone will want to go shopping at Birch Press Design.
I couldn't resist the Adornment Peony and distress oxides. It was only obvious that I had to use the die cut "WOW" with this flower. It's all about the "WOW" person in your life.
