Cricut Country Fair Challenge for Bitten by the Bug 2
Welcome to the latest Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge: Country Fair. I found this challenge well, challenging but I managed to eek out a couple of cards I feel have a country fair feel. I found this 7 Gypsies paper that really lent itself to my cuts.
The cow is from Quilted Christmas. I know right? An Xmas image? I find so many great images in this set, I love the intricate cuts that are pretty easy to create. I layer my cut on a manual die cut oval using My Favorite Things Double Stitched Ovals in a complimentary golden paper.
My second card is a supposed award winning pie from the fair. How do you like that? It's blueberry, my hubby thought it should be more blue but I find when you make a pie they turn more purple. Anyway, the first dark paper cut didn't work, the paper was too thin. So I switched to a thicker paper, the second cut was fine but still quite a puzzle to assemble the blueberries (dark layer).
I used the Sparkly Sweet Treats image set for this one and same 7 Gypsies Spitafields paper. I also used one of my oldest tools, my original Creative Memories corner rounder.
