My New Favorite Hero Arts Die

Almost Leap Day., but I couldn't pass up creating a card with my new Hero Arts "favorite" die right now.  When I saw it in the catalog, I knew I just had to have it and ordered it right away.  It is sold out right now as I think everyone else in Hero Arts land had to have it too.  I can imagine this die being used for almost any occasion from sympathy to wedding.

First I die-cut both glossy and regular card stock with the same size Stitched Rectangle dies.  I then took the card stock and die-cut the paper with the Window on the Garden Fancy Die.    I left the top panel white and sponged oxide distress inks on the glossy piece of white card stock.  I spritzed with water and dabbed it off with a tissue to create texture.   I glued the pieces together and chose a deep grape color note card to glue the panels to.  Minimal decoration and I'm finished.
