I started by taking an A2 size piece of black cardstock from my stash and blended Delicata gold ink through a Sunshine stencil with a mini blending tool. Removed the stencil and blended more gold ink in a circle. For even more shimmer, applied Gold Perfect Pearls powder to the ink. Wiped off excess with a Swiffer cloth.
Heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. To make it stand out better, used a black Polychromos pencil to add a shadow. Mixed Gansai Tambi gold paints with water and added some gold splatters.
The final step was to add the die cuts. The confetti and gold balloons with strings were die cut from a scrap of gold foil paper. The white balloons were leftovers from a previous card and all I had to do was die cut the strings from white cardstock. The panel was adhered to a white card base to finish.
