Fabric Softener/Dryer Sheet Card-Always Grateful

I had a customer ask me to create a project using a dryer sheet like she had seen on Pinterest. In reality she just wanted me to create it and see how hard it was before she tried!

First a look at the card I created and then I will tell you how I did it.




 

After a few attempts I really like this technique. It is simple and creates a dimensional and different look. First, the dryer sheet needs to be dried at least 6 times. The more it has been run through the drier the thinner it gets. Second, I ironed mine in order to get it to lie flatter on the card. Third, I used a spray adhesive to adhere the dryer sheet to the card, which then allowed me to pour glitter on the softener without needing additional adhesive.  

To create the card I stamped in black the trees from the Close to My Heart Always Grateful acrylic stamp set in Black and then the bird in Cranberry. I then sprayed adhesive on the dryer sheet and adhered it to the card. I used my hands to rub the dryer sheet smooth and while it was still wet I used some Martha Stewart glitter on top of the dryer sheet to make the sky shimmery. 

Enjoy this technique and try it yourself!
