Tutorial | Black & Gold Birthday Card with Timeless Textures

Ooo, I just love it when a beautiful card comes together! I’m going to save this one for my favouritest person to give to….I’m sure I’m not the only person that does that?! Anyone else?

Whilst I am owning up to stuff, I have to say this card was inspired by the lovely Kristina Werner – I will share her link down below so you can see her version.

Balloon Adventures will be retiring at the end of May, so make sure you get your set ASAP – this set is a really useful one as I even made Easter eggs from the balloons! Check that one out HERE. The stamp set is currently at the reduced price of £19.20.


UK/International A6 white card base
Black mat – 5 7/8″ x 3 5/8″
