Make It Monday #4

This week's challenge is about using fun foam on your project.  Go to Nichole's blog to watch the technique video for this challenge.  Wow! Fun foam is not something I would have even thought of using.  Surprisingly, I did have some fun foam but I had bought it to use as a cushion for stamping.  It wasn't really usable for a project, so I took a trip to Michael's to get some more.  I found some really pretty glitter foam so I had to get it.  I have to admit I was really surprised it cut like a dream when I put it through the Cuttlebug with the Papertrey number dies.

So I went for it and made the following birthday card:


I cut out the numbers in the glitter foam (love that it had an adhesive backing).  It's not only the first time I've used fun foam, but also the first time I've used the number dies.  Love 'em!

I am loving these challenges so far!
