Easy alternative card with Magic in this Night DSP!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a sweet alternative card made with the Magic in this Night DSP, Halloween Magic Dies, and your favorite sentiments! If you are like me, when you choose designer series paper you look for the best use, especially when it comes to holiday DSP! So, I decided to hit the “pause” button again from making Halloween cards to show you a simple card, but still using some of those products!

For the base layer, use this design from the Magic in this Night DSP cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Stamp the sentiment from Peaceful Moments stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White cardstock, cut out with the third smallest layering die from Stitched So Sweetly. I used the large background stamp from Painted Poppies to stamp in Pretty Peacock, Blackberry Bliss, and Cajun Craze inks, stamping off twice before stamping on the Whisper White cardstock.

2. Use the fourth smallest (or third largest) layering die from Stitched So Sweetly to cut from Blackberry Bliss cardstock, this will be layered under the above sentiment die-cut.

3. Cut a 7” piece of Metallic Mesh Ribbon.

4. Use the leaf die from Halloween Magic Dies to cut two pieces from Pretty Peacock cardstock.

5. Place some adhesive sheet on the back of Basic Black cardstock and use the flower die from Halloween Magic Dies to cut two pieces. I placed one of the die-cuts on Blackberry Bliss cardstock and the other on Cajun Craze cardstock and use my snips to cut around.

I tied the mesh ribbon into a knot, closer to the left side, and adhered the ends to the back of the DSP base layer:

I adhered the die-cut layered sentiment with dimensionals over the mesh ribbon as shown, and placed a glue dot in the upper left and lower right corners (for the die cut flowers):

I adhered the die-cut leaf to the back of each flower as shown, placed the die-cut flower in each corner with the glue dot, and then adhered this completed piece to a Thick Whisper White cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the tall poppy image in Pretty Peacock ink, and use the small splatter background stamp in Blackberry Bliss ink, stamping off first:

I made three cards with one sentiment and the other three with this other sentiment, the only things I changed was the layering dies (second and third smallest) and since this is a smaller sentiment, I used the same background stamp as the inside of the card, but stamping off once first:

Since you can “mix and match” the sentiments from Peaceful Moments, I left the inside sentiment blank so that I could choose what sentiment to use at a later time. Even though I normally use those ¾” x 4” strips of DSP for the inside of the card, that was actually used a couple of weeks ago for a different card, but I was still able to make six cards from this 10 ½” x 12” DSP.

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! 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! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
