HA Poinsettia Xmas Tag

One of my New Year's Resolutions was to practice different techniques. One technique is layer stamping. Another technique is to get more use out of the items I have like the Gina Marie Designs GMD Fishtail Banner die. I used the GMD die & placed the Sizzix plate in a way that did not cover the die completely on first pass thru the Sizzix BIGkick and a 2nd pass picked up & placed over the cut part and ever so carefully covering the die so that other half is cut so I could get the left to look like the right for the sentiment tag.
