Hello everyone!

Did you survive the holidays!?


After the splendid Christmas binge of red, silver and gold, I need soft colors! After all Valentine's Day, birthdays and various anniversaries are near and it’s better to get a head start, for this I propose these 4 very pastel cards.


To make them I started from 4 pieces of white Bazzil (one for each card) of 18 x 15 cm and on each one I spread the *Fluffy*: I used the colors Sunshine, Light Blue Grey, Baby Pink ed Apple Green. Once dry I used the *Deco Lines* dies (the little stars on the blue and green cards, the hearts on the pink card and the small holes on the yellow) making sure to offset the lines to create movement in the composition. Just for the yellow card, I threaded white cotton thread through the various holes creating a decoration similar to a big cross stitch.


With the sewing machine I sewed the edges of all the cards with the thread color matching the Fluffy.

To bring out the die-cuts, on the back of the panels I glued white cardboard of the same size as the initial Bazzil.


Then I cut 4 pieces of 18.4x18.4 cm of *Double face paper* of the colors combined with the Fluffy that is Pastel Green, Pastel Blue, Pastel Yellow and Pastel Pink. I glued them on the back of the respective panels.

At this point I added the *Hanging Tag**Banner* and *Tab Set* die-cuts and since I wanted to give 3D and create more layers, I used the 3D foam mounting tape.


For the sentiments I chose the *Clear Stamp Per Te*, I like how the stamp stands out on the cards: it immediately becomes the protagonist!


Once the panel was finished, I simply mounted it on a white 18.8 x 30.8 cm Bazzil folded in half on the longer side.


The very pastel cards are over, I hope you enjoyed them!

Thanks and see you soon!

Francesca.
