Stampin’ Up! Fun Flower Thank You Card

just believe fun flower thank you

I made this flower with dryer sheets and the Fun Flower Bigz Die.  Who knew dryer sheets could be so pretty?!  As you might imagine dryer sheets would be hard to cut but if you sandwich the die, then the dryer sheet, and finally card stock you’ll get a clean cut.  I only had to clip a couple of hanger-ons.

Once the flower was cut, I spritzed it with color, then outlined it with Dazzling Details Glitter Glue.  Of course, then it had to sit and dry.  I let it dry completely over night.  I set it out on some paper to dry, but I should have set it on wax paper instead since I did have a little trouble with a couple of spots where the glue stuck to the paper.

To assemble the flower, I punched a 1-1/4″ card stock circle from Primrose Petals then stacked the flowers on top, punched the center and adhered them all together with a brad.  I punched a  3/4″ card stock circle, adhered the rhinestones and glued that to the top of the brad with a glue dot.

‘Thank you’, from the Just Believe Stamp Set, was stamped in Basic Black full strength and then again without re-inking to get the different varying shades of black and gray.

    just wondering…did it take so long to dry because of the spritzing or because of the glue? this would make a great make and take at an event, but i’ll forego the glue if i can spritz the dryer sheets ahead of time. thanks for the clarification in advance!

      Hi Jenn! Don’t know why I didn’t see this comment before. The glue definitely took the longest to dry. The dryer sheets are not absorbant and so it took a little while for the spray to dry as well. I hope that helps!

    Hi Julie!
    I was just wondering what kind/brand of color did you use and was the drier sheet used before you cut it.
    Thanks!

      Hi Sara, I use Stampin’ Up! colors and brands exclusively. I believe it was a pink spritzer that was available previously. But you can fill the empty spritzer bottles that are available and fill them with alcohol and drops of any reinker to get the color you want. Also, by adding a little shimmer paint to the spray you can get the sparkle too.
      The dryer sheet is used before you cut it.
      Thanks for stopping by and visiting!!

    Thank you so much for the tutorial on the dryer sheet flowers. I tried it last night and with the card stock, they cut out beautifully. I made my own spritzer out of acrylic paint and water and left them to dry on wax paper as you suggested and they didn’t stick. Thanks!!
