I'm sure all of you are familiar with the dryer sheet technique. Its been done numerous times on YouTube and with the Lovely as a Tree stamp by Stampin Up. But the way my friend brought everything together is a way I had not seen. So here it is:
Technically there are 4 layers to this card. 5 if you count the base. Anyway you would stamp and shade your scene first. (layer 1) then spray adhesive a used dryer sheet and lay that on top of your stamped sheet (layer 2) Smooth it out and no it doesn't have to be wrinkle free it will still look great. Trim excess dryer sheet even with card stock. We then re-sprayed the top of the now dryer sheet covered image. Sprinkle glitter over the top. It does not matter which brand you use just be aware that if it is one that carries a pinkish hue to it your scene will look pinkish. I used a paint brush to brush off excess glitter. Really helps. To assemble the card cut a piece of card stock and some foam sheet about 1/4" larger than your image sheet, then on right side place your die and cut. Do each piece 1 at a time. (or it won't go through machine ask me how I know LOL) Using a foam layer (layer 3) on top of the image layer gives you a real nice window effect. Then place die cutted cardstock (layer 4) on top. All of this then can be glued down to a card base which would be a 1/4" larger than your finished layers.
We were not very precise with our measurements because we all have envelope makers and decided we would just make special envelopes for this card but I'm sure you can do this same design with a standard 4.25 x 5.5 card.
We used Tim Holtz holiday sentiment dies for the left side of the card. We were not sure if the original card was a stamped sentiment or a digi one but we did not have anything that fit so we used dies.
I'm sorry....I know this is long and probably confusing but if you have time to play I would give this a try. Now That I figured it out it's a breeze.
