Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper

The Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper creates a beautiful and simple backdrop for one of this month's in-home stamp-a-stacks. As usual, the picture does not show the shine and vibrance of colors, which are blackberry bliss and pretty peacock stamped using the forever fern stamp set.  It's difficult to tell, but the little spots are stamped using the retired gold ink.  This could also make a beautiful Christmas card in greens and reds.
