12 Days of a CAS Christmas #9 – Glorious Season by Linda Duke

Yes, Christmas is most definitely a glorious season and Linda certainly created a glorious card to celebrate the event.  Her card may look intricate, but all she did was layer two coordinating die sets, using coordinating sheets from a Kaisercraft pad.  And, of course, the poinsettia!  I do think it would be fair to say that this Design Team LOVES the Layered Poinsettia die!!!  Below we have a collage of some of the poinsettias the Design Team has created for the upcoming holiday season.  Plus we have a little bonus project from Linda, too, so be sure to scroll all the way down. OK, now back to Linda’s card for today:


Love, Love, LOVE these lacey, filigree type layers with the gold metallic paper shining from behind!  SO gorgeous!

You can see Linda’s post on her blog here.

Not used today, but Labels Twenty die set coordinates with Christmas Labels Twenty.


All made with Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia die set

Rather than just show you the die set, I did get these various poinsettias put together into a collage.

These have all been made by our Design Team so far this Christmas crafting season. (And it’s still only October!!!)

If you follow us regularly here, then you’ve seen these already, but it is just fun to compare all the sizes, colors and textures achieved by using the dies with different papers.
