Pocket Life Journaling Cards can make your scrapbook pages go together quickly, but sometimes the size or orientation of a card doesn’t quite work with your page. Or you may want a color scheme or style that’s totally unique. Good news! You can still take advantage of this easy style of scrapbooking by creating your own custom Pocket Life Cards!
First, you’ll need to create the card base. You can create a journaling card in any size, but they usually come in the 3×4-inch (900×1200 pixels) and 4×6-inch (1200×1800 pixels) sizes. If you want your card to have rounded edges, use the Rounded Rectangle tool and adjust the Radius. The sample cards use a 70-pixel radius.
To make the floral border, apply the floral paper to your card base using a clipping mask. Then, create a smaller rounded rectangle above the floral paper and clip a white paper to it. I added a blue stroke to set off the smaller rounded rectangle from the floral paper beneath it. Finally, I placed the embellishment on the card and added a small drop shadow. My first Pocket Life Journaling Card went together quite quickly!
