Love 6 x 6

I'm in the mood to make Valentines. I have another technique to show you today. Another SU club share. Our demonstrator showed us how to make this 6 x 6 Scrapbook page using a old dryer sheet. I was skeptical!

This technique has a similar effect to Dazzling Diamond Dust, but is much more diffuse giving you a very soft almost out-of-focus look.

The Dryer Sheet Technique is an oldie but a goodie. A simple way to dress up a card and make it unique. The glitter adds a wonderful quality under the dryer sheet. The card glistens!

1. Using a neutral piece of cardstock, stamp and color your image.
2. Cover the entire surface of cardstock with Anywhere Glue Stick
3. Press a used dryer sheet onto the adhesive, beginning in the center and smoothing out all the wrinkles.
4. Trim dryer sheet or wrap around and secure on the back of CS.
5. Pour Dazzling Diamonds all over it. Rub or press the glitter in, then tap off the excess.
