Artfully Sent Dec 25 Cricut Card Close to My Heart

Today's Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut card is a quick 5" x 7" Christmas card that uses the "Project Life" type cards that are on the cartridge.

I thought backing it with the geometric grey gave it a more modern twist. A bit of silver shimmer trim dressed up the card and balanced the bow.

It was an easy pick to find the right sentiment for the inside - see the stamp set I used below!
Here are the cuts I used:
And again with this super cute bow from the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge:
I used this Merriest Christmas stamp set (a favorite from the new catalog):
- There is a full font which is very cute
- 50 pop up cards with coordinating icons
- icons, shapes and phrases to coordinate
- 50 cards that create a scene or are swing cards (!)
- 100 quick and easy layered sentiment cards
- 100 sleeve and overlay cards (see video)
- 100 card fronts that could be used as Picture My Life (or Project Life) cards

That's 400 total cards PLUS a font! 
Plus it also comes with 3 stamp sets valued at $60 and a package of white cardstock valued at $15.
