Celebrate your next Birthday with a Core’dinations Black Magic card. With some simple sanding and heat embossing you can make it look just like chalkboard!
Black Magic Birthday Card Supplies:
- Black Magic
- Glitter Silk
- Core Basics White A2 Cardbases
- Dust Buddy
- Sand it Gadget
- Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress embossing powder
- Tim Holtz & Ranger clear ink pad
- Heat Gun and embossing tools
- May Arts Ribbon
- Xyron adhesive
- Stampin’ Up! border punch
- Scor Pal
- Gina K Stamps
Step 1. Begin by sanding the Black Magic cardstock first. It’s important you sand BEFORE you stamp and wipe dust with Dust Buddy. Removing excess sand will help the clear ink pad stamp clearly to ensure a crisp image when you emboss.
Step 2. Emboss with Tim Holtz & Ranger heat embossing powder. I like to use my scraps because sometimes it takes a few tries to get a good image.
Step 3. Add layers of Glitter Silk and more Black Magic along with embellishments.
Today I have two cards using our Core Basics line. The Vellum and 110 lb Smooth White cardstock are great for stamping. And even though the Kraft and Black cardstocks are not sandable, they still look great embossed, scored and punched!
Core Basics Cards Supplies:
- Core Basics: 110 lb Smooth cardstock, Smooth
- Kraft, Smooth Black, Textured Kraft and Vellum
- David Tutera Celebrate white cardstock base
