You and Me - Anniversary card

The newest Cricut Circle cartridge has arrived - Letter Envy!!  I am pretty excited about this cart and I really am not even sure why, as I typically don't like mismatched fonts.   Well, I opened it almost as soon as I got the box and flipped through the handbook.  As soon as I saw the heart with a flourish on it, I was inspired!

And it just so happened that I needed to make an anniversary card for my husband.  I am in love with him and with this card! :)

Here it is:

I cut the heart and one of it's layers at 3.5".  The & was cut at 3" and the words were cut at 2".   Everything was inked with brown to soften it all. 

I also wanted the card to be soft so I didn't add pop dots but I did only glue the phrases down where they touch the heart or the ampersand.  This left the ends loose.  Hopefully you can see what I mean here in this picture:

I really like the way this card came out and am very proud of it.  I could even tell my husband liked it because after he read the inside, he closed the card and examined the front very closely.  He followed that up with a compliment about the card but it was that inspecting stage that I really appreciated!  :) :)

I shared this on Made by You Monday and PBD's What are you up to?!
