Side By Side


I will always be amazed at those couples who stood the test of time,
married for what seems like forever.
Their love is true, their love is strong.

The Craft's meow


We've had two amazing days of The Craft's Meow May Previews! Today is the debut of the set I designed, called Side by Side. It is mainly a sentiment based set geared towards weddings and anniversaries, but the flowers and a few large sentiments included can be used for any occasion!

I went really simple and graphic with this card, inspired by Maile Belles. The large sentiment was embossed with gold onto a strip of gold washi tape, and another smaller sentiment was stamped onto a white banner. Pieces were layered at different levels to add a bit of interest.

There are some new designers showcasing their stuff for The Craft's Meow. Please be sure to stop by for a visit at the Blog and the Designer's Blogs. You've got a chance to win this beautiful set for free!

  14. Lovely card Karen and I want to commend you on this set. I've always thought there should be more anniversary sets - I've heard it said that bdays happen, you can't avoid them. But you have to work to achieve an anniversary. I love this sentiment the most (would SO apply to my folks.) Happy day to you.
