I have seen people using fun foam, not sure if that is the “real” name, in constructing their cards and have always liked how the finished cards looked. Only problem is I would always forget that I wanted to experiment with the look.
Today I happened to glance at one of the pages from the Stretch a Your Stamps 2 online class that I just finished. The room got brighter as a spot light flashed on over my head. Finally….I remembered to use my foam stuff. I used the Upper Case Fun dies from My Creative Time that came in the mail today to die cut the letters on this card. Love it/them. The pink paper is from Stampin’ Up can’t remember the green one.
The balsa wood was an ah ha moment. As I was die cutting the foam the balsa wood laying on my counter caught my eye. This time instead of a light bulb going off over my head a “?” Blinked off & on. As the picture shows the balsa wood worked awesomeeeely.
