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.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:

Hop on over to Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge: Country Fair challenge and try your hand using your Cricut machine.  The challenge is open for two weeks.

  1. Wonderful to find an image on a cartridge that you would not expect like the cow. My hubby & daughter like blueberries. Especially like the papers you used for a vintage feel.

  9. These are all kinds of fantastic! Love both cards big time!

    We live in an area of BC that blends farmland with forest. This mix lead, well over a century ago now, to the creation of an annual agricultural fair here that has been held almost every year since. Understandably, it was cancelled last year and this year due to the pandemic. I miss it a good deal, as to many locals, and will be keeping my fingers crossed that it is able to safely return again next year. Until then, as these darling designs remind us, we can always enjoy farm life via our paper crafting.
