Many of you know of or have likely come across the path of Janine Tinklenberg (aka Jan Tink). She has a wicked sense of humour, and I mean wicked in a good sense... lol
Anywho, she posted a tutorial on "burnishing" on her blog (yay, finally!), that I'd been (im)patiently waiting for and I (finally) got to try it out. Easy, and the end product is pretty... gotta love that! You can check out her awesomeness HERE.
I mailed this card out yesterday to a lady named Mary who is collecting Cards for Troops, so I intentionally made this card as flat as possible, adding a thin ribbon only.
Someone's wife, girlfriend, sister or mother will recieve this card from a loved one far away... and it honestly warms my heart. :)
Happy creating! :)
