Luxurious Layered Cards using Forever Yours Scrapbook Collection

Creative Memories new Forever Yours Collection was released just in time for the spring/summer wedding season.  I know that I’ll be attending a few bridal showers and two weddings this summer – one being my son’s – and I’ll need some cards for gift-giving.

I created two beautiful layered cards with lots of texture and pretty details using the Forever Yours Paper, Stickers, Embellishments, Laser Cut Embellishments and Vellum Paper.  Our new 4-Way Corner and Hole Punch added the final pièce de résistance to these cards.
