BIG Thanks

BIG Thanks

Hi All!

Today’s card uses Ellen Hutson’s hinged letters. I only have the Thanks set, but you can buy the whole alphabet. I’ve seen a lot of fun cards made with these dies!

For my card, I cut the letters with strips on the left side to make a rainbow. The letters hang off the curved edge:

BIG Thanks

I created my sun the same way I did for this pocket card. Here is a close-up:

    Your card is very colorful and well executed. I always admire how you manage to get everything to come together perfectly in the end. Your care to take the time and trouble to measure each step carefully along the way confirms that it really does pay off in the end. Fantastic job!

    I have that Hinged Thanks die, and have been looking for more ways to use it. Just may have to CASE your card! 🙂 Love the rainbow colors and the simple-ish (graphic) design look. I agree that a face on the sun would have been too much. Depending on the style of the face, it could have detracted from the overall look of the card design (like if the face were too cutesy). Another thing that you could use to hold the strips instead of the masking paper is Glad Press ‘n Seal. That also has the advantage of being clear, so you could see better where you’re laying your pieces down. Just thought I’d throw that out there. Thanks so much for the inspiration! 🙂 ~ Andrea

    Darlene, you are so creative and precise! This is a great use of those hinged dies, but way too much work for me! Thanks for another great video. I learn a lot from your details😀
