You Can Do This

Blue and Greens are my favorite colors. Couple that with botanicals and the Forever Greenery Suite delivers! The images of this Distinktive stamp set make it easy to stamp color shading and variations all at the same time. The Suite includes a cozy herringbone knit embossing folder, gold hoops and combo pack of delicate Vanilla Open-Weave Ribbon and Gold Metallic Trim. All of this comes together with the Gilded Gems in some of the most decorative and beautiful cards I’ve ever seen.
