Anniversary Number 8!

Today is my 8th Wedding Anniversary. 8 years ago today I married my adorable hubby, Callum, at sunset on the gorgeous Greek Island of Santorini, surrounded by our closest family and friends. We did have plans to celebrate over the weekend but Callum was poorly so our celebrations have been postponed until next weekend.

I do have a little stash of cards that are for Callum but today I had an idea for a new one that was inspired by the sketch this week at CAS(E) this Sketch!.

(hover over the image and click on the pin to save to pinterest)

My first attempt followed the sketch exactly but it just didn't look right to me. So I moved the whole thing down to the bottom and off set the 'u'. To me, this looked much better, so I stuck with it. I have to say, I love making CAS cards, but I was a little bit wary of all this white space. However, the more I looked at the card, the more I liked it, just as it is now! I firstly heat embossed the 'u' onto the card but decided that more dimension was needed so heat embossed another 'u' and fussy cut this out, mounting it on foam pads. 
Luckily hubby is a fan of my CAS cards (these days, when buying cards for me, he hunts the shops for the most CAS card he can find!) 

Thanks for popping by and enjoy the rest of your day xx
