I used the new set called Sew What? which will be available for purchase on Tuesday January 11, at Mark's Finest Papers.

For the embossing challenge , I used heat embossing, dry embossing!

I stamped these beautiful antique looking scissors in versamark and embossed them in gold. I love the detail in the MFP stamps!

The card base is cherry cobbler, with a piece of fancy dp from DCWV holiday collection.

The kraft/crumb cake panel was embossed on the bottom with an embossing folder from a set called measure by measure. The top zigzag part was from a set called just my type. I put a thin strip of cherry cobbler inbetween and finished it off with some gold twine.

The January Release and Blog Hop Start Tuesday January 11!

Have a Great Day!
