Hello and welcome...
 I love black and gold cards, even with a little white showing too!

This card was a commission and I designed it starting with a white, blank 20cm (8") square card base

A narrow mat of black card then white card completed my base card

I then cut a piece of black card, slightly smaller than the background die that I was using, and covered it with a piece of double sided adhesive sheet

I cut another piece of black card to 11.5 cm by just under 16.5cm and die cut it using the Scandinavian Background Die
I removed the adhesive backing sheet and sprinkled Golden Sand Polished Silk Glitter over it, burnishing it in and decanting the left over back into the container.  I added mounting foam to the back of this and adhered it to the centre of my card

Using the border die from the same collection, I die cut 2 strips in black card, I added double sided adhesive sheets to two white card borders, removed the backing and adhered the die cut borders onto them, then glittered them as above.  These were adhered, flat, to the card

I typed the sentiment onto white card and die cut it using one of the oval double pierced dies and glued it to the centre of the focal point.  To complete I added a verse to the inside, as well as using a corner punch on all 8 corners of the insert papers, then, using the same punch again, punched 8 more corner pieces in gold card.  I trimmed the bottoms of the punched pieces,  to give me a straight edge and glued them all 8 corners, as shown below
