LDRS Creative | HSN Throwback - Layered Poinsettia Dies

Who's ready for Christmas?! It's only about 4 months away, and I am ready to bring you some fun Holiday vibes using some LDRS Creative products from HSN!

I started by project by using the flower dies from the Poinsettia Layering Dies from HSN to cut two shades of red cardstock, white cardstock, and kraft cardstock. I also used the leaf dies to cut three shades of green cardstock. Be sure to watch the video above to see how easy these dies are to layer and put together. I like to find a reference point when I'm layering. That makes it easier to know where to adhere the pieces to make sure they're lined up properly. Don't forget! LDRS often puts layering guides on the back of their packaging, so don't throw that away! It's a great visual aid. 

I wanted a pretty frame to accent my card, so I cut white cardstock using the Floral Foliage Slimline Dies. You can use just the outer die and you'll get a full panel with a cross stitch outline, but if you layer the two dies together, you'll get the frame with the cross stitch and foliage patterns. I cut a slimline card base to 3.25" x 8.25" and started adding my Layered Poinsettia flowers and leaves to fill the background. Every Holiday card should have a bit of sparkle, so I spattered some gold watercolor all over the background. I added foam tape behind the Floral Foliage Slimline frame and added it to the card.

All that's left is to add a sentiment! I used the Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas Dies and cut a layered sentiment and added it to the center of my card with foam tape. That's it! I hope you've enjoyed seeing some previously released HSN products in action! See you soon!
