I have just read the very good tutorial and I am keen to start! However, what does 'burnishing' mean? Does it just mean press it down? Something is lost in translation between the USA and UK!

Very interesting and appealing...have the card stock. Will have to start collecting scraps which mens get serious sewing done now that we are fairly settled in our new home. :)

Can't wait to try this - I love making my own cards- this will give me something different
to do. Thanks for the idea- and how to.

Recycle old cards!!! use the leftover Christmas cards etc you have put away and don't want to use again next year.

Often, I have scraps of beautiful fabric leftover which make great cards on their own without any embellishment. I take a piece of heat'n bond lite, cut it a hair bigger than the card and iron it to the piece of fabric, peel of the backing and then iron it to the card stock. With a rotary cutter you can then cut the fabric to size by cutting along the edge of the card. Then fold the card in half, iron and stack some weights on top of it.
