Hello Lovelies! When I saw Simon Says Stamp's Stencil Heart Masks, I immediately had a card idea in my head! It's bold but simple and I hope that you find it as charming as I do.
Thus, today's card features a stencil that will become at staple in my craft room. It coordinates perfectly with Simon's Nested Heart dies and offers so many possibilities, but I will use it here to layer hearts in shades for pink.
The Heart Masks Stencil essentially comes in two parts: a set of outlines (shown in the above) and set of cut out hearts (which you can use as masks).
We'll need this stencil and a couple of other key supplies for making this card:
