Stitched Strips Two Ways

I took another piece from the new Simon Says Stamp die set, Prettied Up Gift Card, and made a couple cards, the first a Christmas card...
I LOVE this stitched strip in this die set...it is fun and fun to create with, but especially because it is so long...the die is long enough to cut a strip that goes from end to end diagonally on an A-2 card:)!!  I die cut, adhered, then trimmed the strips.  I die cut the "JOY" then layered.  I cut from metallic paper, but the real shine and prettiness is lost in pictures.  Here's a close up, anyway:)...

The second card, I used the strips horizontally and made a "rainbow", using the sentiment from the new Simon Says Stamp set, You've Got This stamp set, and some teardropped rhinestones...
The die cut strips weren't quite wide enough to fit the length of my card, so I left a white border that matched the with of the sentiment, on three sides of the card.  Here's a close up of the card...
I still have yet to make the gift card...it's coming...such fun with this die!!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
