Young at Heart card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Young at Heart".

I've not necessarily made a Valentine's day card. It can also be used as a birthday card or an anniversary. Because we are showcasing Simon Says Stamp exclusive products this week, I used the Drawn Hearts stencil and the Best Day Ever die from the Hey Love collection. With the Drawn Hearts stencil and Texture Paste I made a first layer. When it was dry, I placed on the top and bottom edges some Grit-Paste.

After that was completely dry, I got it all covered with Opal Magic Rose Gold paint. This time I first applied a layer of Mod Podge, which is mixed with water before I added the Infusions. I used Are You Cerise, Sunset Beach and Black Knight. The Stitched Oval cutting template I also gave a coat of Opal Magic Rose Gold paint. Then I used the Best Day Ever die, which I doodled a bit on the make it stand out even more.
