White, Blue and Silver Hearts

One of the groups I belong to has a monthly swap and these are the cards I made for the Blue White and Silver swap. I got to play with my new toys....I love pretty much everything in the new Mini catalogue.
Both cards have the same elements, Night of Navy and Whisper White card stock, Night of Navy Classic ink and the Silver Shimmer paint. The Small Heart, Large Full Heart, Heart to Heart punches and a border punch. The stamp sets were I{Heart} Hearts and Vintage Vogue.

I created a background with Night of Navy and the floral flourish from Vintage Vogue by randomly stamping all over the Whisper white CS, next I stamped the friend heart onto the center of the background. I used the silver shimmer and applied it with a sponge dauber to the patterned heart in the heart set and stamped them onto the Night of Navy CS then punched them out with the Full Heart punch. I used the sponge dauber to color a small piece of Night of Navy CS and then punched out with the small heart punch, the smallest heart from the Heart to Heart punch was layered on top.
I placed the punched hearts as you can see in the picture and trimmed the excess off, popping up the small hearts with dimensionals. Punched a border along the bottom of the Navy layer and used the sponge dauber again to sponge Silver shimmer paint on the punched border. A Whisper White satin ribbon finishes it off.

The border of this first card was stamped onto the Navy CS using the border from Eggcoutrements stamp set which was then punched out with the Scalloped border punch, it fits very well.

For the second card I used the ticket corner punch and the new Scallop Trim punch, it is otherwise the same
Thanks for looking, have a great weekend!
