 For my hop card, I used Thanks A Million, Thanks large word die, and Stitched Border dies.
I started by cutting 1/4" strips of paper in a rainbow of colors, then ran each strip through my Big Shot with the straight stitched die.  I adhered them to my focal panel and then offset them on the card base. I die cut the thanks three times from black cardstock and glued them on top of each other. I selectively inked the sentiment and finished the card with some rhinestones. The focal panel is popped up.
 
  

 We hope you've enjoyed this release!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Fabulous creation and I love the rainbow look you've created with the dies! :)

Auntie Em said...

You can never have too many rainbows! :) I like the bright bold one you created with the strips and the thanks raised in the black over it...along with the sparkly rhinestones. It is a good idea to stack the dies together to make a chipboard-like piece and less flimsy than just one raised with foam dots.
Thanks for sharing your great design! :)
