The Forever Fern bundle includes an 11-piece red rubber stamp set with a 14-piece die set. Scoop it up now, while you can save 10% on your purchase. There are lots of other coordinating products in the Forever Greenery Suite. I’ve dressed both of these cards up with the Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper. Let’s break down each card so you don’t miss any little details.

This one is all about the shine. Had to go outside, in my garden, to take the photo. I hope it picked up the sunlight reflecting on the beautiful gold medallion. That’s all you need to take a card go from simple to special. The Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper will retire soon and it’s currently on sale.

The gorgeous designer series paper in the background is from the Ornate Garden Specialty pack. That one has lovely flowers plus all-occasions designs that combine for a modern take on classic Victorian florals. There are lovely gold foil designs on some sheets. Hold on to your hat! This paper pack is on sale for $6. Yep, that’s right 12-sheets of 12″ x 12″ paper to play with at a fabulous savings.

You’ll even be able to make multiples. I decided to stamp the sentiment on a Stitched So Sweetly die. Leaving the inside of the card blank, will allow me to stamp something for the occasion I need. This card could be used for Birthdays, Thinking of you, and so much more. Ready for card #2?

I love this one so much. Maybe because I’m itching to plant some flowers in my garden. That sweet little daisy really makes everything else on the card pop.

The lovely Forever Greenery DSP will also retire soon. It just happens to be on sale as well. It’s only $9.20. I think it’s the perfect neutral kind of paper you can use on so many designs.
