Magic in this night

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and easy Halloween card featuring products from the Magic in this Night Suite! The Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper has some cool, funky, and spooky designs, but I thought I would take one of those designs up a notch with stamping, embossing, and adding a little sponge coloring so the embossing will stand out on the DSP! 

For the base layer, I started with the design that has the white stripes on the black background, stamped the small spider in White Craft ink, embossed with the Cobweb 3D Embossing Folder, and then used a sponge with White Craft ink to lightly color over the embossing. The base layer on the left is the embossed side and the right side is the debossed side, just to show you the different effect of each side:

For the card front, you will need:

1. A 7” piece of Metallic Mesh Ribbon.

2. Stamp the sentiment in White Craft ink and use the second smallest sentiment die from Stitched So Sweetly to die-cut out.

3. Use the second largest sentiment die from Stitched So Sweetly to die-cut a piece of Black Glitter Paper, this will be layered under the above die-cut sentiment piece.

4. You will need two 4mm (small) Iridescent Pearls, not shown.

You will assemble the sentiment for the card front as shown with the die-cut layers and the two pearls:

I first figured out where I wanted the sentiment piece on the card front and then placed the mesh ribbon so it would be directly behind it. The ends of the ribbon are adhered to the back of the base layer and I used two dimensionals to “pinch” the ribbon behind the sentiment piece:

The sentiment piece is adhered to the dimensionals and then the base layer is adhered to a Misty Moonlight cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink, and the small spiders in Smoky Slate ink:

Pretty easy to make this fun and creepy Halloween card! Now when it comes to White Craft ink, it does not dry quickly. At. All. So, if you want to “help” dry the ink, use the low setting on your Heat Tool, and if you have a spider that didn’t quite dry and left some ink on your embossing folder, simply wipe with a baby wipe or a damp cloth! I could have heat embossed with White Emboss Powder, but I like the subtle effect with the spiders only stamped in White Craft ink, kind of like when you walk through that spider web that you never see! lol

Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up!
