As I sat down at my stamping table to create, I saw the dryer sheets that I had put aside recently. I have been meaning to re-visit the Dryer Sheet Technique and realized the Nature’s Perfection stamp set would work well. I first shared the Dryer Sheet Technique on my blog in August 2010 and it remains a popular post. Perfect for a technique on Throwback Thursday. View the original dryer sheet technique post and video.
I decided on blues and chose Night of Navy, Island Indigo and Bermuda Bay. I stamped my images in Night of Navy and Bermuda Bay onto a piece of Whisper White card stock 2-1/2" x 5-1/2" and then colored them in lightly with an Aqua Painter and Island Indigo and Bermuda Bay refills.
After the inks dried, I applied glue from a Stampin’ Glue Stick over the entire piece of card stock right to the edges. I really like these glue sticks. If yours get dry, watch this video about how to rehydrate glue sticks and don’t forget to subscribe to me on YouTube. Place a laundered dryer sheet on top and smooth it out. You want the dryer sheet to be slightly larger than the card stock. I like to tuck the edges of the dryer sheet underneath and glue down but cutting the dryer sheet to the edge of the card stock also works.
Before adhering to the card, I like to sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds glitter over the dryer sheet. No need to add extra adhesive as the glitter will adhere to the glue underneath. This step is optional but it dresses up the card a bit.
The "just because" greeting is from the A Dozen Thoughts stamp set. I assembled the various layers of card stock including a Scallop Edge Border Punch punched piece to finish the card.
