I first cut out 1 panel using a stitched rectangle die by SSS, which measures 5.25 x 4 inch and adjusted the size of my base card to match. I cut the panel into 2 parts using 2 more SSS dies from the Stitched slopes and hills set (1 to cut and 1 to stitch) and also cut a black mat using the same die.
For my first card, I cut my sentiment from my panel using a Hello die by Wplus9 and then cut it 3 more times from black cs so that I could add some dimension.

For my second card, I matted my panel using back cs and then stamped a sentiment at the top using a stamp by Clearly Besotted and black Archival ink.
