Welcome back crafty friends, Tracy here and today I have a fun and quick little tutorial to share on how I created this Get Well – Pom Pom Card. I love to add fun texture and dimension to my projects with pretty ribbon and trim. I want to share a couple of tips on how to do just that.
How to Adhere Pom Pom Trim
I started with a plain white chipboard frame, and the pom pom trim I wanted to use. When it comes to anything trim or ribbon, I turn to Extreme Double Sided Tape. Using this tape will ensure that my textured pieces stay in place.
Using Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/8″, I taped the edges of the chipboard frame.
I started adding the trim at the bottom of the chipboard frame.
Tip: If you ever anticipate imperfection, like the beginning and end of this trim, Place it at the bottom of a project. The eye is less likely to notice it there.
Continue around the entire chipboard frame, one section at a time. Then I added another layer of Extreme Double Sided Tape to adhere the back side of the trim to the patterned paper in the next step.
Assemble the Card
I cut a piece of patterned paper to fit on the back side of the chipboard frame. The Extreme Double Sided Tape keeps it in place. Using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser I added the yellow patterned paper to the card base.
Adhere the pom frame to the card using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. The paper flowers were added to the card using Adhesive Dots and the sentiment tag was added to the card using 3D Foam Squares.
I added a burlap string bow to the tag as a finishing touch.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
