I absolutely love the new dies from Suzanne.  There are so many ways to use them. I previously did a card using the die to emboss the word which you can see HERE. Then of course there's the normal way with a shadow layer HERE; and these 2 cards embossing using the die cut HERE; or using the die cut on a gelli plate HERE.
