[Video]Cricut Artbooking 5 Minute Christmas Card-Close to My Heart

Today's card, made using the Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge (see more about that below), really just took five minutes to make!  How great is that!?

I love a fast project, don't you?

Here are the cuts and sizes from the Artbooking cartridge:

I cut the ornament overlay, shown above, two times - once in green and once in red.  

I did use the Cricut Craft Room to create the red background so that the ornaments were filled in with red.  

To see how to fill in different parts of an overlay using the Craft Room, you can watch my video HERE.

If you wanted to piece this by hand, it would be very easy - just cut it out once in green and once in red. 

Keep the negative pieces and you can actually make two cards - one with a green front, as shown here and one with a red front.  Fill in the ornaments with the opposing colors pieces.
I was impressed with how well this "joy" cut out considering it has some narrow parts!
Paper was by Anna Griffin and solid white glitter paper was from Michaels.  This card fits in a standard sized business envelope.
