Cricut Thanks!

I wanted to make an almost exclusively Cricut card today. I have been neglecting my poor cricut, so for this card I created and designed the entire thing in the Cricut Craft room which made for a very quick and simply card. Craft Room is very useful, even for just making sketches! I used a 5x7 rectangle just to represent my card base (in hindsight I think I should've gone smaller), and once I had everything sketched out and sized, I separated all my cuts and loaded up my paper.

While Cricut was doing its thing, I embossed my card base and set up my stamps. Super Simple, less than 15 minutes! Now I just have to decide if I'm going to invest in the new Cricut Explore or not!
