Black, White and Gold - A classic combination!


Good morning! I have been inspired by a few pictures I found on Pinterest. I straight away pinned them. Since Gold is the flavour of the month for me. lol! I am inspired by the gold calligraphy writings on black balloons. And also use of gold glitter on the balloons.  The contrast is eye-catching. You can find all the inspirational pictures pinned to my GOLD Pinterest board. With these in mind, I set out to make a card yesterday. Here is the finished card.

Love your still card

 For the background, I used Hero Arts Large Flower background stamp inked in gold ink stamped on white cardstock. So elegant. Love it as it is. The balloons are die cuts using My Favorite Things Balloon Die -namics. I love the calligraphic font sentiment on the Valentine Wishes stamp set which I stamped in gold on a black balloon and heat embossed using Zing Gold Glitter embossing powder. Then on the rest of the balloons, I used spatter stamp from Jumbo Abstract Art stamp set from My Favorite Things to stamp in gold and heat emboss using Zing Gold Glitter embossing powder. The balloons looked gorgeous in contrasting colours and glitter. 

love you still card

I added black twine on the back of the balloons and clustered them as a bunch, then adhered on the card panel. Sprinkled some black stars. Finally added the little banner from Valentine Wishes die with sentiment stamped in gold.
