Hello there! I'm so happy to be here posting a new card for Make it Monday.
This week, Laurie shows us how to make our own foam stickers. Cool, huh?
Plus, the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is 'It's a Guy Thing'. Which
is great because I have another masculine birthday card. With more to come, too!
I certainly had a 'why didn't I think of this?' moment, and couldn't wait to give
homemade foam stickers a try. I decided to use some fun foam that I had in
my stash. Let me tell you, this stuff cuts amazingly with the die cuts! Again,
'why didn't I think of this?'. Simply brilliant!
So, with some fun foam and a PTI number die, I cut out this big cool '3' to be
the star of this card. Then I found this stripey pocket card from a Studio Calico
project life kit. With this, I die cut three candles with another PTI die. The
sentiments were stamped from a set I received in a Studio Calico kit. This set
actually falls in the NBUS category... Love that I'm using my NBUS more now
than ever! Thanks again, Darnell!! Finally, I decided that the space of the die
cut candles really needed to be stamped with the coordinating set, Make A Wish,
for visual happiness. I'm sure the little guy who is going to be receiving this
card would totally agree. *wink* So, I stamped those candles, popped up the
stripey layer, and adhered the '3'.
Voilà! Another masculine card for a special little guy. Too much fun!
It's getting a little late to join in over at Make it Monday... But, I really
recommend giving a try at making homemade foam stickers. I know
I'll be making more of my own in the future. Until then, thanks for
stopping by. And I hope you visit again soon!
