Hanging the Greens at Bitten by the Bug 2

Hello, Friends!

This week at Bitten by the Bug 2 we are gearing up for Christmas!  I am pleased to be hosting the challenge this week and since many people are decorating for Christmas now,  I chose the theme of “Hanging the Greens” for our topic.  I love using beautiful greens for my holiday home décor and for paper crafted projects so this was a natural choice for me!

I made two different cards for my Design Team project and had a very hard time deciding which one to put on the BBTB2 blog.  So I will share BOTH of them here!  I used the Anna Griffin Winter Wonderland cartridge for my Cricut cuts.  It has such beautiful, traditional, intricate cuts that really suit my crafting style.  The background paper is from a My Mind’s Eye Christmas paper pack that I have had for a while and the cardstock is from Close To My Heart.

I used two separate images to create the design for the front of this card–a bell and a holly swag with a bow.  I wish the photos would have better captured the glitter paper that I used for the bow and the shadow of the frame.  I love how it turned out!

The second card I’m sharing today has a poinsettia cut, also from Winter Wonderland.  My Cricut Explore cut this intricate design so beautifully and the Close To My Heart cardstock really helped too!  I love this poinsettia card just as much as the holly card–can you see why I had a hard time deciding which to post to the BBTB2 blog?  Which one do you like the best?

  1. It would be impossible to choose between the two cards. I love both of your cards/images! They are such beautiful cuts and the papers are so pretty on both cards. I wish I had this cartridge. Thanks for picking a fun challenge.
