Make It Monday #4


 
Posted by Picasa
Hello! It is time for another Make It Monday Challenge at Papertrey Ink. This week Heather Nichols challenged us to us Fun Foam. I have never used it in my crafts until now. I don't have any little ones at home so I wasn't able to raid their craft supplies. So it was off to the local craft store to get some. I just picked up a few colors to give it a try. I do like how easy it works with the dies. I am sure that I will using it again. This time I went with something simple. I am beginning to like these CAS cards. Fot the base of my card I embossed it with the Picnic Plaid embossing plate. I cut mat for the butterfly and used some rub ons for the Butterfly trail. The butterfly was cut with fun foam and stamped with an image from Butterfly Dreams. The sentiment is also from Butterfly dreams stamped with Aqua Mist.The button and ribbon are Aqua Mist. I used some gems for some added sparkle. The corners were cut using the ticket punch from SU!.
I am going to make this short. My husband is home today. He had to report for jury duty this morning but his group got excused so I am going to take advantage of the time we have together.
Have a wonderful day,
Liz

Liz, the texture on the base is the perfect way to accent the gorgeous flourish and butterfly. I also love the contrast of the aqua on white. Lovely.
