Let Your Trim Shine!

As I held the fabby pink pom-pom trim sent to me by Audrie, I thought, "Wouldn't it be cool to let it be the only color on the card?" While searching through my drawers for a stamp to pair it with, I found the Hero Arts old phone set and inspiration struck.

The trim is attached with a strip of 1/8" of ScorTape on the bottom of the popped panel, which allows a bit more space for the thicker trim. Not a card to plop in a regular envelope and mail (I'll include it in a package or put it in a padded mailer), but definitely fun!!!

What are your favorite trims to use on cards? Lace, beads, rickrack, ruffles, twill? Or are you a flat purist?


  1. I very much enjoy how your trim shines!

  2. I love that pom pom trim. It looks super on the otherwise clean black and white card. I bought a bunch of this trim in every color, and then couldn't figure out how to use it without overwhelming my card. Thank you for showing me a good idea. How is your son doing?

  3. Love that card! I really am a flat purist: like things easy to mail, but love ribbon and bling, too.

  4. Great minds! i used this same set on my post today too! LOVE THIS SET!

  5. Love that pop of colour the edging gives it Susan and I remember my grandmother having a phone like that, it had a pull out drawer in the front to write phone numbers on!!!!
    I love using ribbon and pearls:)
