Big Halo Hello - Poppy Stamps Blog Blitz

I recently got an email from my friend Jeanne Jackna, asking, 
'would you like to join the 
Poppy Stamps Design Team?'
Couldn't say yes fast enough! I secretly crushed on Poppy for oh so long!
And, guess what, it's Blog Blitz time at Poppy, which means I get to 
showcase a die from the new release.
There are so many wonderful new dies to check out, but seriously,
is there one better than 'Hello' to greet Poppy fans with?

I LOVE this double die, that allows you so much creativity. 
Every piece you see, on my card, was die cut from white card stock,
then the larger, (fatter) die was rainbow inked in warm colors,
before adding the white, skinnier die.

The larger die was placed on an angle before running it through my 
die cutter.
Then I simply placed my rainbow 'hello' in the window, adhering 
it to the inside of the card.

Still plenty of room to add your rest of your message.

I glued several skinny 'hellos' all over the card, on a slant, 
like the window die cut,
then snipped off the edges.
Gives the card such a cool embossed effect, don't you think?

I loved doing this so much, I did 2, one in warm tones, and one with cooler.

How would you like to win this fun new double 'Big Halo Hello' die?
