Make it Monday again: Fun Foam

A quick post because I have to get back to grading algrebra exams... ugh! But I have another Make it Monday entry for this week!


I again used the foam two ways. First, the Limitless Layer "frame" is cut from foam. First I cut the Limitless Layer shape, and then cut out the center with the plain circle die from the same series. TIP: if you are going to make a die-cut like this with very thin edges, first adhere Scor-Tape to the back of the foam (or paper) before running through the die-cut machine. It was easy to just peel off the backing and adhere to my card! :) 

Second, I also stamped the Mat Stack 4 shape on my card, with a light orange chalk ink, using a foam "stamp" that I cut with the die. Then I stamped the image from Mat Stack 4 Collection in a darker orange right on top. Then I stamped the cake image from Birthday Tags in a light aqua, and the sentiment from Fillable Frames #1 in a darker aqua.


Inked up edges, used Impression Plates on the white (canvas) and the Aqua Mist card base (polka dot), added ribbon and a button with twine.


OK, back to grading... blech. Thanks for looking and as always, thanks PTI for the fun challenge! :)

Very nice, Debbie! I especially like how your stamp of the mat stack frame gives a perfect border to the second stamping! Great idea!

Cute card! Love the tips! I especially like how you die-cut the mat from fun foam and stamped it to make a mat for the Mat Stack. This can be done for any of the dies. Thanks for sharing these ideas and congrats on the shout out!

great card! i love those colors (are you using it for Heather's Totally Hues challenge?). and great tip about adhering the tape FIRST before cutting. i didn't even think about that and could have used the tip.
