Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge- #29- We're still in stitches!!

Welcome to the middle of the month installment of Serendipity Stamps challenge. We are continuing on the theme of stitches.... real, faux, .....

This week the DT was challenged to do some embossing with a Serendipity die along with stitching.

I went with the gorgeous {egg} die set. Die cut the solid background and then embossed the intricate die shape. I tried embossing and then die cutting but, it made the embossing "flatten" as you may notice with the flowered egg. Also, I have a thin and thicker mat that I purchased at MFT a while ago and found the thinner mat works better- these dies are so intricate the thin mat prevents the die from fully cutting. I stitched the outside layer {hard to see in this pic} and stitched the lace to the first paper layer.

The curvy borders are from a Spellbinders Borderabilities that Karen and Julie {made me buy} used on cards previously and I just loved them.

Here's the inside..

Used the same two spellbinders dies, added a little stitching, button with twine!

Eeeks... time is moving fast, it will be Easter soon!!

A treat for the eyes Vickie! SO many fab details, the doily and fancy lace that tie together perfectly with the debossed eggs. Great mix of patterns and that yummy satin bow!
