BBTB 2 – Anything goes with a watermelon

Who doesn’t like watermelon (besides my husband, lol)?  The challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 is to craft something on the Cricut with a watermelon.


I love watermelon and have a cat that also loves it, so he gets part of the rind to lick when I cut one up.  I searched Design Space for watermelon and found this image and sentiment as part of the Just Because Cards cartridge (melon #M472AF).  I adjusted the size of the watermelon a bit and used some perfect paper in a paper stack by The Paper Studio called Fruit Art. Since there was some paper with the seeds already in it, I used that and didn’t use the top red cut of the file. The file also contains an envelope, so I cut one using the same paper as the background.  It is hard to tell, but the dark green rind and border are a shimmery cardstock.

See what great projects the design team came up with for this challenge and link your own project using the Cricut in the next two weeks at Bitten by the Bug 2.

  1. Can I just say I’m in love with the envelope??? It’s so dang cute with the watermelon paper liner! I love the little extra that gives a card! The paper is also very fabulous, wish I had some of that myself! Love it on your project! Hope you have a great week!


  2. I never seem to have the right paper – and you always do. What a great card for summer fun. With seeing all these projects,, I had to buy a watermelon this week, and it is delicious!


  3. Great addition to use the watermelon back ground paper! Great card. My hubby doesn’t like watermelon either…I don’t get it…it’s so good!
