There is nothing better than using your crafting skills to create a gift for someone. That is what I did for this mum, or chrysanthemum, flower project—a gift for my mom. (Get it - a mum for mom?!) Crucial to achieving this fun look, I used Vertigo in Prism and Mboss Embossing Powder in Hologram. I created a 5”x 5” framed Mixed Media piece full of color and texture. See the video slideshow or my instructions below to see how I get some extra dimension with the Vertigo sheet!

Handmade encouragement card featuring holographic stars made with Mboss embossing powder.

You Are My Lucky Star

Mboss embossing powder is sold in a resealable bag and it is so easy to use and clean up after. The gusseted bottom allows it to stand independently on your surface and won't tip over easily. The fact that you can pinch the bag while you are pouring the powder onto your project allows for greater accuracy too. I used the Hologram MBoss powder on this star card and it really makes the focal point pop!
