Christmas Card with Cricut Explore

I created this card based on a card I made last year.  While I loved the cards from last year as shown below

here's another version of last year's card

I was very happy with how it turned out last year, but had so many of my Cricut followers ask for a tutorial.  I thought I would try to make this card 100% from Cricut Products.  In last year's version, I cut the star and stag with the Cricut, but the doily was store bought and the sentiments were stamped.

So.... this card was born

It is super simple and the Cricut Glitter Cardstock along with the Cricut Foiled Poster Board (linked below), made this so super simple to recreate in Design Space and the best part is, I never had to leave my house! :)

Here's a video tutorial for any of you who'd like to make this with your Cricut!
