New Toy and a Card

For my birthday I was lucky enough to be given a Cricut Explore! It arrived last week and although I haven't had a lot of time to play with it, I did try a basic card and was impressed with how easy it is to set up and use.I had the bundle from Crafts U Love which included some accessories

My package being unpacked

Lots of places to store spare blades and tools (above and below).

Some of the materials supplied with the Explore
I set it up and made a card for my nephew Simon. It was not a complicated card - I tried out functions I have used with the Cricut Craft Room before, and they are easier with the Explore and the Cricut Design Space.

Simon is scientific so I chose this paper with periodic table symbols on it.
I used Bazzill cardstock, Miri card, October Afternoon patterned paper. The greeting is a rub on.

I made a pouch inside to contain a voucher. 

Happy 16th Birthday Simon.
Thanks for looking
