Christmas with the Cricut Fancy Card Friday!/Video!

Hi friends,
It is time for Fancy Card Friday from CWTC
This was my most fun project to do!
Again, I have made two cards for this day. Be sure to check out the Video on the second card, below. I really had fun making these! I started them out as my "simple cards" but switched them to the "Fancy" card category! I wish you could see this one in person, it is so much prettier and just sparkles with glitter! I think this is my favorite card but it looks much better in person. Enjoy!
