A Card to Remember

We are going to make this card using a dryer sheet. Yep, you read it right. I said dryer sheet. This is a technique  I learned a few months ago and fell in love with. It gives the card a dazzling look. 
 Let's make it together?
Material needed and directions below
A well used, and I mean used and reused, dryer sheet.

Give it a quick ironing
 Black and white cardstock paper to paste on a white card.

A wedding or anniversary stamp for the center of the card.
A craft knife and a ruler to cut the dryer sheet the same size as the white paper. Detail stamps for the corners.
Spray adhesive
Fine "snow" glitter
Spray the dryer sheet with the adhesive and adhere it to the white paper smoothing it with your hand. It should be very sticky.
Put glitter on the dryer sheet. Take the excess off by tapping on the back of the white paper.
It should look like this
Glue a white see-through ribbon with a bow to the front of the card.
Add a gemstone to the bow
Stamp a detail inside.
 Unfortunately the pictures don't really show the difference the dryer sheet makes. The effect is amazing. Make one. I promise you won't regret.
