Such a sweet flower, and you introduced me to a new die set! I really like the way your flower came together and how you made your own patterned paper for the background! I am always playing match with store bought patterns when I should just try making my own!


Wow great idea can wait to play with this project tonight

Donna M.

Ooh...makes me smile. Such a lovely card made with beautiful dies, p.p. and -who would have thought- a dryer sheet. Thank you Melissa. Your talents are amazing!


What a beautiful card made with dryer sheet embellishments - who would have thought?

This is beautiful! I love the fluffy look of the flower. I tried freehand cutting dryer sheets one time to make a flower since I didn't have a diecutting maching and it didn't turn out so well. Now, that I have a cutting machine, I'll have to give it another try. February brought us an ice storm--the snow we have is now solid ice.


I love the card. The technique is amazing . I can't wait to try it.


Absolutely darling! The dryer sheet layers look so sweet stamped with the hearts.

I always seem to have a number of used dryer sheets in my laundry room after a day of washing and drying. Now I have a way to use them up for crafty projects!! What a beautiful card, Melissa. Love all of those sweet layers of hearts and flowers!


Makes me want to buy dryer sheets to try this but think I have something similar I could try this technique with. I have some cheap interfacing from sewing projects to try. Thanks for your inspiration.


Cute card, great idea! Wonder if I could use a fresh dryer sheet? Then the card would also smell good. Thank you for sharing your creative ideas. =^..^=

I love this great idea Melissa! So soft and pretty!! And your card is beautiful!!


Melissa, how beautiful!What a great idea to use dryer sheets. I would never have thought of that. You are so creative!!Thank you for sharing your thoughts as you make my cards prettier!

Marcie Rhys

Thanks for this tutorial! I just left a comment on Nichole's blog a couple days ago saying that I was in awe of your beautiful embellishments.

Now that you have broken it down this way, I can see that the darker colors make a great bottom (background) layer for the paler more ephemeral upper layers to show off their charms. I must make one of these for a Valentine, post haste.

Thanks again for showing (and explaining how you achieve) your wonderful signature style.


recycle everything-right?

Loly Borda

Love your layered flower. TFS

And now I actually have seen everything! I've come to the end of the internet LOL. Love this, Melissa. Such an absolutely gorgeous project.

I've seen dryer sheet flowers b4 and they pale in comparison to yours, Melissa! I love all the layers and that you stamped the sweet hearts onto the dryer sheet. Your card is terrific and the flower is tops. Thx for the tutorial. :)
