Glad you are here to see my post about the Sewn Journal Cards I made for the Lace Song Bird Junk Journal. Sewing lace and fabric on the journal card gives a pretty texture.
Here is a video showing how to make these Sewn Journal Cards.
Sewn Journal Cards Supply List
Ivory cardstock stamped with a background stamp
Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad, Mini, Dried Marigold
ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever
Fabric strip – one inch wide
Martha Stewart Bird punch
We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper Tool
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Apricot
The method is pretty simple. Cut the stamped cardstock down to the size you want your journal cards – mine were about 4 inches by 5 inches in size. Round the corners with the Corner Chomper.
Apply Distressed ink – Spiced Marigold around the edges of the journal cards. Then spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists over the cards to add a pretty shimmer.
Sew lace and fabric to the card with a zig-zag stitch on a sewing machine. If you don’t have a sewing machine use the Best Glue Ever or staple the lace and fabric to the card.
Use the Martha Stewart Bird Punch with peach paper to make bird shapes. Apply Distressed ink – Spiced Marigold around the edges of the birds. Adhere birds on top of the fabric with ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever.
For a final touch adhere self-adhesive rhinestone for an eye on each bird.
Admire the beautiful Sewn Journal Cards you made.
