If you like texture, you’ll love the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I paired it up with hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits, and the look is romantic and vintage.

Pastel valentineThe basket is filled with a small Be Mine scalloped heart. The sentiment is from the Meant to Be stamp set.  Both are available in the Meant to Be Bundle. A Pool Party and Silver Baker’s Twine bow and a small Blushing Bride heart are the perfect accents.
