Bit by the Bug Tuesday: Winter Bug

It's Tuesday, do you know what that means? It is time to introduce you to another Bit By the Bug freebie over at Creative Bug on the Loose.

This week we have Winter Bug

Winter Bug is a very versatile Bug and can be used not only for the holidays, but birthdays as well. This is one you are not going to want to miss.  

My niece just had a birthday, so when I saw this image, I knew I wanted to do a birthday theme. It worked perfectly since she is holding a present. But there are many occasions to give presents, aren't there? So you can see, the possibilities are endless. What do you see when you look at Winter Bug? 

Here is what I did:

I used white card stock for the base of my card and matted it with a birthday printed paper. I embossed an olive green card stock by Kraft-Core (Nostalgic Collection) with my Cuttlebug numbers embossing folder. I colored the CB image with Artist's Loft pencils and gamsol blending solution. The image was cut out using Sizzix Framelits - Oval Collection. I brushed the scalloped edges with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink - broken china. 
Finally I finished off the card with a sentiment from the Stampin UP Collection called Riveting which I cut out using Spellbinders Nestabilities - Lacey Circles. I finished off my project by creating a matching envelop using my Stampin Up envelope Maker.

Now, in order to take advantage of this week's free digi stamp, Winter Bug, you have to head over to Creative Bug on the Loose and follow the instructions on how to grab it. While you are over there, don't forget to check out all the great digi's available in the store for purchase.
