Can you use the iTunes gift card to buy the cards on the new iOS5 cards app?

I've removed the "how long does it take to come to Australia" bit, there is already a question open for this:… – patrix Nov 6 '11 at 8:18
Patrix, it doesn't appear that the question mentions iTunes gift cards, and it also still appears to mention Australia. – Daniel Nov 8 '11 at 20:05

Cards uses your Apple ID to make purchases rather than your iTunes account, when I ordered a card it asked for my CCV, the security number on the back of my card registered with my Apple ID. You will find the order history in your Apple account and not in your iTunes account.

This is the same service as the one found in iPhoto, which uses the same procedure.
