February Twofer Challenge!

So excited to see the Twofer Challenge for February was posted today!
And here are my two cards.
So what did I use that was the same?   The Heart Confetti Collage die from Poppy Stamps and the metallic gold paper.
My first card is a wedding card - I silver embossed the sentiment on the bottom corner (two hearts become one) - it's hard to see it in the photo above with all the shine of the gold paper but you can see it better in the photo below, and I adhered 3 crystal hearts on the card.  The die cut gold panel is layered over a silver panel that shows through the hearts and it's all adhered to a white card base.
Inside my wedding card I stamped:  "May your life together be full of love and your love be full of life" from Technique Junkies.
My second card is an Anniversary card and I used the positive pieces from the die cut used above (the hearts), layering them over the heart DP with foam dots.  I stamped the sentiment on a die cut sentiment strip and adhered it next to the hearts.  The DP is layered to a gold panel and it's all adhered to a white card base.
Inside I stamped:  "Happy Anniversary - May you enjoy many more happy years" from Papertrey Ink.

These are both so romantic, Julia! You did a great job grabbing a photo of your shiny gold and silver wedding card! It must be really spectacular in person and I love the inside sediment! But my fave is your polkie-heart-dotted anniversary card using the die cuts ~ swoon! Thank you very much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #2!! Hugs, Darnell

Two beautiful heart cards, Julia! Love the gold and silver wedding card. So elegant, classy, and with lots of shine. The crystals add some lovely sparkle. Beautiful way to use the positive hearts from your first card on the anniversary card. Love mix with the gold and black with white polka dot paper. Thanks for joining us at Twofer Card Challenge! xx

Your wedding card is so rich and opulent, Julia ... gorgeous with the silver peeking through the negative space to the gold panel ... the addition of jewels adds the perfect finishing touch! Gorgeous black, white and gold anniversary card ... the pp is so pretty, a fabulous bold background for the gold hearts! You might consider linking this one up at Time Out too! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Anita :)

Two very elegant and sophisticated cards! Love the way you used the gold positive hearts on the second one, and the spray of silver hearts on the first one.

Super use of this heart set die to make some beautiful cards. Love how you used the gold details on #2 as well. Truly TWO wonderful 2fers! Both elegant. TFS

Gorgeous, elegant cards, Julia! Great job photographing that shiny paper without glare. The silver on gold looks amazing on your wedding card, and I love the gold on black paired with the sweetness of the heart shaped polka dots. Thanks for joining in on the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!
