I decided to go with the blue background for these Baby Shower invitations instead of the pink shading. I will never again underestimate the value of good quality cotton. The cheap bobbin cotton was wrecking my cards. The stitching was loose. As soon as I upgraded to my good embroidery cotton, the stitching sat properly.
I had a bit of trouble with the double embossing technique, however after running 30 papers through the wizard I was not about to do them again. I realized in hindsight that next time I may have to try a bigger cut out for the cardboard tool.
