Best in State County Fair Congrats Card

Cut foam 1/8" thick using my Cricut Explore Air, custom setting foam & deep cut blade. I like how easy it is to change the material setting on the Cricut Explore Air and not have to adjust pressure or speed. I also like how easy it is to change out the blade.
