Stitched Alphabet Thanks

I have used six of the cool new Spellbinders Stitched Alphabet dies from their new Stitched Alphabet collection, to make two thank you cards...
This first card I used white cardstock with black floss to stitch my letters.  I die cut four of each letter, and only added adhesive to the ends of the letters where there was no stitching.  I stitched all the letters while I was talking to my sister, yesterday morning!😊  I used the borders of the letters to cut out a panel-long border for the letters.  I popped up that panel on a piece of rainbow paper and then onto a card.  Here's a close up...
The second card, I put the letters side by side and did not stitch them...
Again, I die cut the letters four times each, the top layer the only one with color...I used paint chips for each letter.  I just wanted you to see how I cut the frame out for the letters...
I die cut each letter from printing paper, then lightly adhered them to the piece of cardstock that I want for my card, placing the letters just where I would like them to be on the card.  I then used three of the six borders, adhered them over the letters on the cardstock and die cut them.  I then used the other three dies, and die cut the remaining three letters, and a really cool border is created!  I then ran it back through my Big Shot with a piece of burlap over it and the panel had texture!  Then, I popped up the cut out panel, adhered all the letters in place, and added the sentiment below and done!  Here's a close up...
I had so much fun with these dies...stitched or not stitched...fun!!  Hope you have a great rest of your weekend!!  
Thanks for checking out my blog today!! Hugs!! Lisa
