Using a dryer sheet and glitter for snow
Every month in my card classes, I try to teach a new technique or something a little unusual.  This month is no exception - and you know I love glitter!  Plus, the holidays are a perfect time to use LOTS of glitter.  

You can see from the picture that there's something fuzzy on top of the stamped image.  I glued (using Bonding Memories) a used dryer sheet on top of the paper, then rubbed glitter on top of that.  (You can't really see the glitter, but it makes for a great snow scene.)  I was working from a cute swap card of a card I got from Antoinette Herrin.  On her card, she used Stardust Glitz Glitter Glue (Z1313, $2.95) (under the buildings on her card (a much neater prospect, if you don't want glitter all over you...but glitter is so much more fun!  Who doesn't love it!?)  

Try this technique - it's wonderful for those wintery scenes!
