Anniversary cards using heart frame die cuts

I had a few spare heart frame die cuts (SX) sitting on my desk from creating these wedding cards so I played around with them to create these anniversary cards.  I used a teal and white decorative paper on the top one and dark blue embossed cardstock for the bottom one.  I stamped the greetings on vellum and embossed them - silver embossing on the top one and white with clear embossing on the bottom one.  I used the frame to make a line on the vellum and then cut out the vellum to just fit behind the frame.  I attached it to the die cut using small pieces of double sided tape.
I added pink cardstock behind the hearts on the top one and used markers to colour the vellum from the back on the bottom one.  I tied on a short length of pink seam binding to the frame on the top card and used a silver organza ribbon on the bottom card.  I added the backgrounds to my card fronts and then added my focal elements using 3D foam tape.
