[Video]Easy Fold Artbooking Cricut Card

I wanted to make a nice fast, fun folded card that could be used for Valentine's day or a wedding/anniversary.

Using the Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge for the frame and "Love", this card came together in a jiffy (see video farther below).
Above is a look at the fold.  It's very easy to do.

Fold a 4-1/4" x 11" card in half to make a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card.  
Fold half of the card in half again towards the outside.

That's it!

Here are the cuts I used from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge Bundle:
