Mother’s Day Frame and Card by Patti Milazzo

Therm O Web Supplies:

Therm O Web Mini Runner – Sticky Dot
Therm O Web Zots – Medium
Therm O Web Zots – 3D
Therm O Web 3D Adhesive Foam – Squares


Other Supplies:

Authentique: Grace Collection of pattern papers; Grace Noteables (die-cuts)

Craft wood frame, acrylic paint (cream, white), ribbon, hemp, button, clear acrylic spray



  1. Begin by removing the center panel of the craft wood frame.  Apply a single watered down acrylic “wash” coat to the frame with a foam brush.  The thinned paint will still show the wood grain in the background and be easier to sand off than a thicker coat of paint.  Let this dry thoroughly.  Sand and distress the frame along the edges.  Add a bit of pink/rose colored chalk along the edges and corners.  Apply flecks of white and cream paint using a stiff bristle paintbrush and let dry.  Seal with a clear matte finish acrylic spray and set aside to dry.
  2. Use Therm O Web Mini Runner to adhere pattern paper to cover the inner panel of the frame and then create a simple design to embellish it.

  1. Cut paper ribbons and layer near the bottom right corner.  Then select a cut-out from the Foundations pattern paper, apply Therm O Web Adhesive Foam Squares to the back and adhere over a brown cardstock mat over the paper ribbons. Use the Small Adhesive Squares to adhere the tiny “cherished” die-cut.  Add the punched circle and heart with 3D Zots and Adhesive Foam.

  1. Fussy cut out the flowers from the Delicate pattern paper – cut out a larger image, then several smaller pieces to layer.  Adhere the larger image with Medium Zots to the corner of frame and then apply 3D Zots to the back of the smaller pieces to layer on top.  Repeat this process to embellish the bottom left corner of the frame as well.

TIP: Leave the protective plastic on the Zot and cut with scissors to create smaller pieces.

  1. Tie a bow from sheer ribbon and a double bow from natural hemp.  Adhere the ribbon with Medium Zots to the frame just above the flowers at the bottom left corner.  Apply Zots again to attach the hemp and on the back of the button.
