My muse has been away for so long (sigh). While she's been gone, I've been stitching at least, and have collected a nice little pile of card fronts to play with. This 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 card is hand-stitched (with all its flaws) with metallic thread on mauve pearlized cardstock, then the corner design was embossed (with a light box) using a Marianne Design stencil. Parts of the embossed area were then cut out with an exacto knife, and mounted on gold metallic cardstock. I used peel-offs on two sides, and embellished the tea pot with Swarovski crystals.
