I taught this technique at my last card class. I saw it used and explained on a blog, and I cannot now remember where.
Found it - Thank you Lin, at Sending Hugs.
This is the post I saw it on
It is very easy to get this stunning effect - I cut the stitched rectangle, then embossed the surround before re-inserting the decorated rectangle
The Painted Thanks die is by Simon Says, and I layered it here using two layers of white card and one of patterned paper. Although it does not show in this photo, there are also two layers of WoS over the pp.
I had a creative opportunity here, as the rectangle originally was supposed to cut straight, but it wriggled in the cutting machine... so I also skewed the thanks, and it all looked as though it was planned that way to add interest!!
Once again the gold thread came to the fore, as it is so fine I could use it and was still able to insert the rectangle with no difficulties. I wrapped it around three time, secured the ends, and added the bow afterwards
The final detail were the three silver sequins - who said gold and silver should not mix??
