Here’s the card I show you how to make in my video…
There’s definitely a whole lot of black and a variety of gold on this card!
When I recorded my video I hadn’t made a version of this card but just had a vision of it in my head, which I tweaked as I went along! I really do like the different golden tones and textures and hope you do too…
My card base is Basic Black card measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, scored & folded on the long side at 10.5 cm. I added strips of Gold Foil, Gold & Rose Gold Metallic specialty paper and Basic Black card that measured 10 x 1 cm onto a piece of Basic Black card that measured 10 x 14 cm. As you’ll see in the video it wasn’t as neat as I wanted so I trimmed it down to measure 9 x 13 cm before adding it to my card base.
I stamped the flower and sentiment with Versamark ink onto Basic Black card, added Gold Stampin’ Emboss powder and heat set it. I used the Scalloped Contours die to cut the flower to add to my card.
I used both black twine and gold trim, doubled up and tied in a bow, to add even more black and gold to my card.
I’ve got a panel of Basic White card measuring 10 x 14 cm inside the card.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my black and gold card and have been inspired by everyone that’s taken part in this video hop. I hope you’ll take the time to give their videos a thumbs up or a comment if you can.
