Used Dryer Sheet ???
My friends and I otherwise known as B*itch Craft get together about once a month to trade ideas and techniques that we have seen on line. Last week we crafted with Used Dyer sheets in card making. I am not sure on what blog or web site this originated on, But none the less it works. It is very helpful if you have the bigger 5 inch Xyron machine and dark colored inks as well as larger stamped images. The process goes something like this. On my card I used a larger butterfly stamp with various dark colored ink. I stamped onto white card stock and then cut to fit. I ran my card front through the Xyron image face down so that the sticky stuff was on the front of my card. I then took the dyer sheet ( that still smelled) and stretch and adhered that to the card front. Either cut to fit or wrap it around to the back and tape. I prefer the wrap method as it cuts down on the little frayey things. The dryer sheet gives the card a nice soft finish and a gauzey look. Viola.
