Poinsettia card made using the Sweater Weather caritrdge.

Hello, friends!

Today's card is made using the Sweater Weather cartridge. I know this was one that you guys were not all that interested in, but this cut is so much fun! I just love the old fashioned look, plus I really love poinsettias!
I used Kraft paper, ribbon from PTI, and stamps from Close To My Heart.
I cut the shape out at 2" and added a border trim using a Martha Stewart punch.
I stamped the sentiment using the Christmas Love stamp set.
I also scored the card base a little bit just to add a little more detail.

Thanks so much for for stopping by today, my sweets! See you all back here tomorrow!

November Specials:

November stamp of the month:





Holiday Wishes stamp set that is only $5 with a $25 stamp purchase.

When you place a minimum order of $25 in My Acrylix® stamp set starting today (until November 30th), you can purchase a new D-size Holiday Wishes stamp set for only $5! That’s significant savings off the full retail value of $17.95 US / $19.95 CAN. And here’s a bonus: many of the images in the set coordinate with our Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge for added cutting and stamping fun! 

So to break it down, 
-If you spend $50 you get the November stamp of the month (retails price of $17.95) for $5.
-If you spend $25 in stamps, you get the Holidays Wishes stamp set (retail price $17.95) for $5!
-These two offers can be combined. For example, if you spend $25 in stamps and an additional $25 on anything else in the catalog you will get both stamp sets for a total of $10 ($5 per set).
You save $25.90! Which means the stamps practically pay for themselves!

*note* You MUST add discounted stamps to shopping cart when prompted by the system during checkout. Stamps cannot be added after the sale is complete and finalized. Also, adding the stamps to your cart BEFORE being prompted by this system will result in being charged full price for promotional stamps. 
Have a great day!

I really like this card! The gray (if I'm seeing this correctly) card stock really offsets the poinsettias-really pretty!

Super cute! It's so reminiscent of sweaters I would have worn when I was little- I think mine had Scotty dogs on it! Lol

Love the colors you used for the poinsettias. The sentiment with the added hollyberries is very pretty also. I don't think this will be a must-have cart for me, there's so many, many others on my wish list right now.
