It's A Dry Heat! with Lisa Blastick


Hi everyone! I'm back today sharing a new card for Cheery Lynn Designs using their New Release North America and Canadian 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 postcard 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!
