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!

  4. What a perfect card for a little guy, Janelle! Lots and lots of visual interest and stimulation ~ and a big fat blue number three that he will want to EAT! I'm not even three and I want to eat it! lol! The whole card is perfect and totally fun! I still haven't seen that video, but I'm dying, too, as I see so many of you having fun with die-cutting the foam. Do I even own any foam? If not, where do I get it? Will it be sold out now? My mind is racing, but NBUS comes first. Thank you so much for playing in my challenge again! I'm so happy that I inspired you!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell
