Save Your Pennies: Magic In This Night DSP Card Base with Frightfully Cute Tricks and Treats


Witch way to the candy? If you’re up for a spooky card, the Frightfully Cute stamps and die bundle are the perfect always-in-style halloween tools. And if you love a special, don’t miss out on the Magic In This Night Designer Paper, available in the clearance rack in my online store. Today’s #DSPCardBase tutorial will give you the tricks (treats!) on how to extend a die cut shape that’s too short, plus making the most of your special Silver Foil Specialty Pack paper.


I do love a good DSP Card Base, and this retired (limited time on the Clearance Rack!) designer paper is so easy to use for custom colored choices. The black and white papers can be colored using Blending Brushes (I’ll show you how in the video tutorial below) for any matching color. I used Fresh Freesia for my cardstock accent colors and the stamped moon, but it was a little light for the blending trick, so I added Highland Heather to my supply list for this card.


Don’t wait too long to grab this paper – I’m not sure how much longer it will be available. And with the custom coloring, you can turn the grayscale pages into whatever color scheme you choose.


Today’s Halloween DSP Card Base cutting sizes:

  • Basic Black Card Base: 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
  • Basic White Card Layer: 4 1/8′ x 5 3/8″
  • Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper: 4″ x 11 1/2″, score at 5 1/4″ and 10 1/2″, fold the extra 1″ to the front

So many fun ideas for this set of supplies. While the spiderweb die is my favorite (did you see my Halloween Pinwheel Tower Card?), I ended up using it in the middle of the card. The front featured the tree and moon, plus an excellent ‘secret’ trick for extending the die cut label, which was really too small for my card layout. Can you guess what I did?


Want to see the these tips in person? The video has a step-by-step lesson on this card, including the tip for extending the die cut and for a custom cut version of the moon, if you watch to the end.
