Vintage Borders Blog Hop

Hi!
We are hoping again tonight! In the spotlight is Nina Brackett's new stamp set called Vintage Borders. I love all of Nina's stamp sets but I have to say this one is my favorite so far.
I have two cards to share with you tonight.
The first card uses just the sentiment in set.
I started out with a 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of In the Navy paper and folded it in half. I added the layered ovals using In the Navy and Silver Lining paper to the top which makes the size of the card the normal 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". Across the center of the oval is a daisy border punched with one of my new border punches using Silver Lining paper. The scalloped square was embossed using a sizzex ef and added to the front of the card with foam pop dots. The sentiment was stamped on white pl with inky blue Vivid ink and cut out using the labels 9 dies and layered on Silver Lining cut out using the same Labels 9 die then backed with In the Navy cs cut out using the Labels 5 die. I embellished the card with ribbons, buttons and pearls.

Here is the other card...
For this card I heat embossed the images on Gina K's Chocolate Kiss and Fresh Asparagus using Bridal embossing powder. The ornaments were cut out with oval nesties and then double matted with Rocket Red, White PL, and Fresh Asparagus also cut out with oval and scalloped oval nesties. I cut out the borders by hand. I embellished this card with ribbon, pearls and a ribbon slide.
