Creating with Fun Foam

You're probably wondering, "What? Fun Foam?".  That was my reaction at first.  I had some Fun Foam that I normally use when making Shaker Cards.  Had absolutely no idea that you could cut Fun Foam with your dies (maybe I'm just an airhead, but never gave it any thought to use my dies).  Now imagine all the possibilities! 

I decided to create a card using this technique for the Make It Monday #4: Creating with Fun Foam.  There is a video put together by Heather Nichols.  She demonstrates how you can use your dies to cut the Fun Foam, but better yet, you can use the cut Fun Foam as a stamp!  :)

Here's my creation.  I used the smallest die in the Delightful Doiles Collection to cut the Fun Foam and stamped the border across my cardstock.  With PTI's Fresh Snow, I inked up one of the stamp doily in the Delightful Doilies set.  Do you see the sparkly border?  I was bummed to have missed out on the Make It Monday #3: Glitter Strips with Scor-Tape.  So, I tried it here.  I cut the Fun Foam using one of the Limitless Layers 2 1/2 " Circle Collection, cut "C" die in the Doily Details Collection in Kraft CS, and used the Tag-its #1 set for the inside. 


Dyed seam binding was added with a pearl to the Fun Foam.  Lastly, I sponged the edges with Fresh Snow.


What do you think?  It was fun and fast!  Nice to take a break from using my copics!  :)  That's it for me!  See you laters.
