Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great Monday! Today's Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge cut was selected by my sweet Design Team sister, Michelle (Michelle makes the most amazing layouts so I cannot wait to see what she does with her own challenge). Michelle has challenged the DT to use a Cricut cut Squirrel or Nut on this week's project. I decided to use both!
I used three cartridges to create my card: Close To My Heart ARTFULLY SENT, CTMH Artbooking, and Winter Woodland. I love the sweet animals on the Winter Woodland cartridge. I thought they would look great with the white pines card (you can make any type of tree - I made mine Michigan white pines) available on the Artfully Sent cartridge.
Using Winter Woodlands I cut two adorable squirrels and an acorn for the front of my card. I used the same color family, but four different colors of card stock to create my squirrels. The animals, acorn and sentiment were attached to the card using pop dots.
I cut a label shape for the top of the card and stamped it with the adorable alphabet stamp set that comes with the Artfully Sent cartridge set. I wanted to say "I am NUTS about you", but I did not have enough space. So I went with a text format and changed the sentiment to "I'm Nuts 4 U".
I finished the card with two natural color flowers, a bit of twine, and pen highlights.
We hope that you choose to join us in this week's Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge. Create a NEW project using any Cricut cut Squirrel or Nut and link up with us at the BBTB2 blog.
