Recycled Christmas card journal

Good afternoon from a bright but breezy Essex. I trust your weekend is fabulous?
Well, i finally finished making my journal from recycled Christmas cards following a video by the wonderful Jellibellie. Click HERE  to view it for yourself and make one.
I began this a few weeks back but then lost interest as im prone to do. The thought of painting or covering the cards seemed too daunting. However, then i got me a brayer to use on my Gelli plate and its made the whole thing so much easier. I only covered one side of the cards as im planning to use papers on the other and so it took me a couple of hours this morning and they were done. Simples!
I’m pretty pleased with the overall effect. 
Here’s how it came out
work in progress, brayering the individual cards
front cover made using gelli plate
back cover via Gelli plate too
love how the spine looks with the ends of the ribbon

Dont know what i’ll use it for yet but i’m glad i’ve made it.
