Pastel Valentines Collection

Happy Weekend!

It's been a great week and I'm really looking forward to having no deadlines this weekend for a change.  I even managed a day off in the week and met up with a very dear friend of mine who I've known for about 15 years now - it was a novelty walking around the shops and having a leisurely lunch before the school run.

I'm up on the CrafTangles blog today with a collection of pastel Valentine cards.  I don't know about you but I tend to associate red with Valentines and fancied trying something a little different.

For all the cards I designed I used distress inks in soft shades to make my backgrounds with a variety of love themed stencils by CrafTangles.

I added die cut shapes to stamp my sentiments on - all with black ink to make them pop!

For my final card I decided to make a shaker using a nesting die set and I think it's my favourite.  I'd love to know which yours is.

So there you have it - a collection of pastel Valentine cards all ready to be posted!  There is a more in depth tutorial of how I made these cards on the CrafTangles blog HERE

I hope you have a good weekend whatever you do!
