Yep, that’s right, gold hoops. I’m going to date myself, but I used to have earrings just like that. Who else? I think they were a wardrobe staple in the 70’s.  But, this time, they are going to create the perfect backdrop in your card designs.

Because I treated that fabulous gold hoop as a “wreath form”, I was able to add bits and elements to decorate  it. It was a no-brainer to add in more of those Forever Gold Laser-Cut images. I’m so glad that I decided to punch them all out of the sheets and store them in our Clear Medium Envelopes. Now, it’s quick and easy to grab one or two while creating.

Because the stamp set is one with DistINKive technology, the images are very realistic. You’ll look like an artist in no time flat. And don’t forget to finish off the inside of the card. With so many image choices, you can create a lovely frame for your sentiment.
