Make It Monday Challenge


This week's "Make It Monday Challenge" for Papertrey Ink is to use fun foam! Did you know this stuff cuts like butter with the PTI dies in your Cuttlebug? I happened to have some in my classroom, so I was ready for the challenge.

For my card, I used the Beautiful Blooms II #1 Die Collection. I first cut the largest bloom out of the fun foam and adhered it to an acrylic block. I was then able to use this as a stamp to make white "flower clouds" on my background. For my flowers, I cut the mid-size bloom out of the foam and layered it with the smallest size bloom cut out of felt. A button and twine on top of that finished it off. For the flower stems and leaves, I used the Flower Fusion #1 Stamp Set. The grass is made from my Martha Stewart Icicle Punch.
