Cards: Birthday

Coming right up...the Subltes Color Collection!

Oh So Subtle!

There’s nothing subtle about how gorgeous the Subtles collection is!

beauty and elegance, the Subtles collection gives you the exact colors you need.

Here are the colors in the Subtles Collection:

- Blushing Bride
- Calypso Coral
- *NEW - Petal Pink
- So Saffron
- *NEW - Soft Sea Foam
- Pear Pizzazz
- *RETURNING - Mint Macaron

- *NEW - Balmy Blue
- *NEW - Highland Heather

You can see several of the colors in the Subtles Collection in the picture below that is provided by Stampin' Up!

Subtles Collection 6-18
Petal Pink, Mint Macaron, Highland Heather, Pool Party, and Soft Sea Foam are all part of the three projects in the above picture.
