Hit the open road with the new Young at Heart Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Retro in style, this fun and playful transportation themed assembling of designer papers, cling stamp sets and coordinating dies will have you reminiscing and reliving past road trips with family, taking in a flick at the local drive in, sitting at the late night hamburger joint with friends in your classic automobile, or soaring the open skies in a vintage airplane! The classic style paper collection is filled with far out transportation graphics from an era in time where life was carefree and the journey was wherever the open road would take you! Diamond checkered patterns, retro themed signs, beach scenes and late night diner script mixed with vintage vehicle graphics are enveloped in a groovy color palette of bright stoplight reds, yellows, and greens, with a hint of electric pinks, flashy teals and glowing orange tones. Two sets of nifty cling stamp sets with coordinating dies reveal high wheeled bicycles, old fashioned airplanes, classic coupes, vintage pick-up trucks as well as several nostalgic banners and signs! A third fun filled cling stamp set flaunts hip and amusing sentiments sporting 50’s era style script perfect for completing the styling of days gone by on all of your retro themed creations! So grab your main squeeze, make sure you’re the first one to call shotgun and travel along with us as we cruise back in time where we will always be forever young!
