It's A Dry Heat! With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi everyone! Im back today sharing a new card for Cheery Lynn Designs using their New Release Northern United States and Provinces. I live here in Arizona, so I had to share the popular "It's A Dry Heat" card. This card was inspired by a post card here in AZ. I placed the "Arizona State" in the middle of the card. The State was cut 3 times in each color and then I fussy cut the white cardstock behind it. It really makes it pop out a bit more. In the center is a star from "100 stars" 

The "scalloped frame" was cut in light purple and kraft and then placed together. The cactus was made using "surfer's up set" surf boards and I embossed them to look like cacti. I also used the small bushes in kraft since it is hot in the summer and everything turns a bit brown. 

The sun was made using a "sunflower" and the font is microsoft word Bleeding Cowboys. The little skeleton is a stamp that I fussy cut out. Lots of pop dots behind, but you could also leave it flat for mailing out.

Hope you enjoyed!

Hi, Lisa - such a cute card! I may have asked before - are you any where near Casa Grande? And I see you are an OR RN. I am currently sitting with my hubby who just had surgery - in Gilbert. Nothing too serious - but he is here for a few days.
