[Video]Artfully Sent Santa Ho Ho Ho Cricut Card - Close to My Heart

I absolutely loved this "Ho Ho Ho" card on the Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge Bundle.  And then I remembered a card I seen on Pinterest that had a beard and Santa suit and figured that would be a perfect topper to the "Ho Ho Ho" card.
This card measures 4-1/4"x 5-1/2" and was super fast to put together (see video farther down on how to do that).

Here are the cuts I used from the Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge Bundle:

Notice the card and envelope sizing above for the different machines!

And from the Cricut Craft Room Basics (although there are many cartridges with a similar shape):
Here's another view:
