Stampin' Up! Special Season Dazzling Dryer Sheet!

Hey there! I love the card I have for you today! I used the  Dazzling Dryer Sheet technique on it. It is especially gorgeous on Christmas cards with  trees and snowflakes.Lookie:

Special season 1

I started with a card base of Island Indigo, then layered on a piece of Winter Frost Specialty Desginer Paper, one of the single-sided sheets that has a foiled stripe in it.

I stamped the tree from Special Season with Island Indigo ink on Whisper White, then covered the entire layer with my Glue Stick. I then smoothed a used dryer sheet over the glue, really rubbing it into the glue. I trimmed the sheet even with the edges of the layer, then sprinkled the dryer sheet all over with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

Before I layered the tree onto a piece of Silver Glimmer paper I wrapped it with a piece of Whisper White Organza Ribbon and a piece of Coastal Cabana  3/8" Ruffled Stretch Ribbon. I used Tombow Glue to adhere the ruffled ribbon on the organza, then added the bannered greeting from Special Season over both ribbons with Stampin' Dimesionals. I added a Vintage Faceted Button and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel for the final touch.

Special season 2
 I simply stamped "Christmas Greetings" and the pinecone cluster, also from Special Season, on the inside.

And that's it! I'm really loving this card! The Dazzling Diamonds Glitter clings wonderfully to both the mesh of the used dryer sheet and the glue that squeezed up between the dryer sheet threads!

One tip: the dryer sheet MUST BE USED. An un-used dryer sheet will not allow the Dazzling Diamonds to stick!

Thanks so much for coming by to see me today. Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!
