The Craft's Meow May Release Preview Day 3: Side by Side

The Craft's Meow

Welcome back to our 3rd day of previews of our new releases for this month at The Craft's Meow!  Today we're introducing a new set designed by Karen Baker called Side by Side, and it's full of beautiful sentiments for weddings and anniversaries - this will be all you need for making cards for these occasions!    Here's my first card for today:


The papers are all from Authentique's romantic collection called Cherish.  I stamped just one of the 12 sentiments and one of the 3 flourished flowers in the set on some cream cardstock, then used my Die-Namics doily die to cut out around it.  The middle panel is a lovely May Arts silk ribbon and I added some tiny pink pearls under the sentiment.

My second card is a CASEd design from my friend Yvonne, using one of the Sizzix Ornate Frames embossing folders:


I embossed the frame design on cream cardstock, trimmed it, then added 2 coordinating washi tapes, my sentiments from Side by Side, and these Petaloo flowers.  Then the panel was added to a camel card base.  

Please visit The Craft's Meow blog to see what my team-mates did with this lovely stamp set.  Leave a comment at The Craft's Meow blog by 8:00 PM PST tonight for a chance to win this Side by Side set!  And I hope to see you back again tomorrow for Day Four of our previews.
