Create an Ultraviolet Mother’s Day Hugs Card

When I found out the color of the month for March would be Ultraviolet I was so excited. I wanted to get a jump start on upcoming holiday cards and I KNEW this would be the perfect time to make a Mother’s Day card for my mom. She LOVES purple! So much so that she has purple highlights in her hair. Yes, you read that correctly! My mom who is in her 7th decade of life is a bit on the wild side so this card will fit her perfectly.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 25 Minutes

Sprinkle Imagine’s Embossing Powder in Sparkle over the image. Shake off excess and heat to melt the powder.

Spread an even layer of Iridescent Purple Creative Medium over a 5 ½” x 8 ¼” piece of black cardstock using a palette knife. Set aside to dry.

Die cut the “Hugs” sentiment from the center of the marbled panel, then die cut a frame from the edge of the panel.
