A Walk in the Woods


I have found my new favourite technique - using a dryer sheet.  I am so loving how soft and snowy this card looks.  I am going to have to try this with snowflakes, with some Christmas images and maybe even some Valentine hearts.  This may be my Christmas card for the year until I get bored of it.

This card is a total CASE of Holly1977 on Splitcoast Stampers.  I used trees instead of snowflakes and used green instead of gold for the strips of paper.  I really wish I had a long Merry Christmas stamp.  While I like the long look of the sentiment here, it almost makes me think of a sympathy card.

I'm now thinking of playing with this idea and doing shapes with coloured glitter with this technique.  As I've mentioned before,  cards with texture are always the most popular in my house.
