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.
