Cricut Artbooking Snowman card

Hello, friends!



Today's card is a bit of wishful thinking! We still sweltering heat here in the Dallas area and I long for cooler weather! Autumn cannot get here fast enough!

I made this project using the Artbooking cartridge and a stamp set that is an exclusive hostess reward. Want this stamp set for yourself? Just place an order over $150 and then you can purchase this stamp set for only $8! Please contact me before placing any orders over $150 so you can get all of the perks you get as a hostess!

The snowflake overlay is another really beautiful cut with many uses. I was thinking of using it as a stencil for spray snow on the windows! It would also be great as a stencil for glass etching.

I have received many questions on how to size these overlays for cards, so I made a video showing you how! Check it out!

I used White Daisy, Twilight, Colonial White, and Whisper CTMH cardstock.
I used an Opaque Pearl Flourish to create the look of wind.
I used Twilight CTMH ink.
This week's prize is the Create A Friend cartridge! The winner will be announced on Sunday the 15th.

If you order the Artbooking cartridge in the month of September you qualify to get four extra stamp sets! That's right four! Let me explain, any order over $50 entitles you to get a limited edition triple stamp set for only $10 and the stamp of the month for only $5.

Here is how it breaks down:


- Artbooking Bundle (includes cartridge, 3 coordinating stamp sets, and 3 sheets of coordinating chipboard A $125 retail value) for $99
 

- Stamp of the month (a $17.95 retail value) for $5

- Triple Stamp set ( a $47.90 retail value) for $10


That is $190.85 worth of things for only $114! A total savings of $75.85! For $114 you get a cricut cartridge, 7 stamp sets, and 3 sheets of coordinating chipboard! This is the best deal there is going to be all year! Get your's today!
