ADD A TOUCH OF SCENT USING AN AIR FRESHENER AND BIG SHOT XL DIE
This card is simply simple, elegant and smells really good! One day, I was walking through my local grocery store and I saw a package of Glade air fresheners “clean linen” for sale. Of course, I’m always thinking, how can I use those in a crafting project? I decided to purchase a package and head home.
Once I was home, I tried various ways to cut the air freshener. Some worked and most didn’t… until I pull out my Big Shot and Circle #2 Die. I laid my air freshener on the second to largest circle and ran it through. Wow! To my amazement, I found a cut circle that smelled fabulous! I had to figure out a way to use it. Can you imagine, when your friend opens the envelope with the card you just sent, it will smell amazing!
1. Cut a 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” piece of Whisper White cardstock and fold in half. This is your base.
2. Cut a 5-1/4” x 4” piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock.
3. Use VersaMark to ink up your cut Crushed Curry cardstock.
Tip: Make sure you get the entire piece inked up because you’ll be embossing on it next.
4. Sprinkle clear embossing powder over the VersaMark.
5. Use your heat tool to melt and set the embossing powder. Your entire piece of cardstock should now be shinny!
6. Place your embossed piece of cardstock in an embossing folder of your choice and add texture using the Big Shot and Multipurpose Platform.
7. Use Tombow Multipurpose Liquid glue to adhere this piece to the top of your base.
8. Cut a 1-1/2” x 5-1/2” Whisper White strip of paper to adhere across the top of your textured cardstock.
9. On scrap paper, stamp your Daydream Medallion in Island Indigo and Crushed Curry.
Tip: Use the Stampin’ Up! Floral Frames Framlit Collection and the Big Shot to cut out with precision.
10. Place your air freshener on the Flower Folds XL Bigz die and run it through the Big Shot to cut.
Tip: Use Tempting Turquoise and Island Indigo to sponge out any white lettering.
11. Layer your Daydreams Medallion flower starting with the Island Indigo flower, Crushed Curry Flower and finally add the Flower Folds flower.
12. Next, stamp your sentiment in both Island Indigo and Crushed Curry on scrap paper.
Tip: I free hand cut the inside of the Island Indigo sentiment and glued it on top of the Crushed Curry Sentiment. I wanted the sentiment to be framed in Crushed Curry.
13. Adhere the sentiment to the top of the flower.
Tip: Be sure to look for writing on the air freshener flower. The sentiment gives you the opportunity to hide it.
14. Don’t forget to add your jewel rhinestones!

This air freshened card is an awesome idea! Thank you so much for your videos AND the instructions/measurements on your website. I love to make cards and I like to watch a lot of YouTube videos to get ideas but I do not like having to scribble things down furiously while doing so! Thanks so much for sharing your great talent and your sweet personality.
in His love,
P.S. I also get a kick out of your out-takes! 🙂
Awesome card! I guess I will be buying air freshners the next trip to the store. Thank you for all of your awesome Videos and inspiration.
Love this card! You have such creative ideas.
This is a beautiful card. I love the colors and the embossed part. It really made it pop.
Where do you get the Versamark?
Nevermind. I found it in the catalogue. Looks like I need to place another order!
I finally took a minute to watch your video using the Medallions and Glade air freshener.
Loved it! Can’t wait till I get to the store to buy some Glade and make some of those gorgeous cards. I love watching your videos.
You really are a great artist! I learn much from you. Thank you.
Loved your card and the use of the Glade room fresheners.. I would love to make this card but will have to wait a while before I can order
all of the stamp sets and all of the rest I would need as I am going to have Hip replacement Surgery the 17th of this month.
LUV this idea Brandy! Keep up the good work, I can’t wait for your videos to come out!
looking forward to trying this card next….I love nice smelling things. I save all the perfume sample thingys for in magazines. So I may use those instead of the glade things….thank you so much for sharing your creativity.
Love this card Brandy! It seems very French to me and I love that. I also love the embossing technique. I’ll try it soon. Thank you so much for your videos!!!
Wow! Love this card Brandy..

Love your tutorials. Just made your card using the air freshener. Didn’t have any crushed Curry CS so substituted Daffodil Delight instead. Turned out amazing. Now I’m going to try your coffee card.. Thank you for being so creative and sharing your creativeness…
Only you would think of using air freshner on a card. I will definitely try this one. Love your videos, you always explain things so well. Thanks for sharing all of your good ideas.
