Halloween is my favorite holiday so when I saw this suite I had to get it. It has an embossing folder, stampset, dies, gorgeous paper and beautiful shimmery ribbon. What I love most is that the colors are dark. I like my Halloween cards to be distressed and spooky where possible. I like cute happy ones too but prefer gloomy and dark cards. But you can easily pair this suite with some brighter colors like gorgeous grape, pumpkin pie and granny apple green and it would be awesome too! And can we talk about the sparkle on this black glitter cardstock?!? I will definitely be using this suite again and again this year! You can find this awesome suite in the new Aug-Dec Mini Catalog.
I started this card by cutting a piece of Blackberry Bliss 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base and one piece to 4 x 5-1/4″ which I then embossed with the new Cobwebs Embossing Folder (part of the Magic in This Night Suite). I used Tim Holtz BLACK SOOT Distress Ink and inked all around the edges of the top panel and lightly over the top of the raised areas of the cobweb. I adhered that to the card base with Tombow Mono Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I diecut the large label from Halloween Magic Dies from the Black Glitter Paper included in the suite and the small label from Basic Black 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock. Before diecutting the small label I stamped the sentiment from the Hallows Night Magic Stampset with Versarmark Ink and added White Emboss Powder and heat embossed. Make sure to use an antistatic powder before embossing. I then adhered both labels together.
I also heat embossed the large bats from the stampset onto the Basic Black 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock and then diecut them as well as the tiny bats with the coordinating dies from the Halloween Magic Dies. I cut a piece of the Pretty Peacock pattern paper from the Magic in the Night 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper to 3 x 3″. I adhered that to the card panel and diecut the border from the same dieset from another pattern paer, trimmed it down to 3″ long and adhered below the pretty peacock paper square. I adhered the labels and the bats to the card. I finished it by adding some of the Iridescent Pearls included in the suite.
On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 4 x 5-1/4″ adn adhered it on the inside. I stamped a sentiment from the Hallows Night Magic Stampset with Blackberry Bliss Ink and added three tiny bats.
