Ultra Violet New Year's Card

I wasn't able to send out Christmas cards to friends who sent Christmas cards to me & my family. So, I sent them a card to greet them a Happy New Year (although, I sent it out a few days after the year has begun.) I am using a Gerda Steiner digital image freebie. I printed the images in Canson watercolor paper. I created a pearlized watercolor by mixing Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor and Perfect Pearl on a watercolor palette. Once the watercoloring is done, I set this aside to dry. I partially embossed the bottom part of the panel, making sure not to emboss the watercolored image, using We R Memory Keepers Next Level embossing folder Gemstones.

I heat embossed a happy sentiment from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler stamp set. I used a Recollections embossing powder for this sentiment. I also heat embossed the confetti on the top part of the panel using a confetti stamp from Mama Elephant Confetti stamp set. I used Ranger Platinum embossing powder for this. 

Working on the frame, I am using Li'l Inker Designs Fringed Scalloped Rectangle and Simon Says Dual Stitched Rectangle dies to cut a violet cardstock. Ultra violet is Pantone's color of the year, thus, my choice of color. I adhered this to the watercolored panel, centering the colored image to the frame. I adhered this to a top folding 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" white notecard.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed and brilliant day!
