Hi Laurie here with a Minnesota card to share today!
My friends and I have really been into making Cheery Lynn state cards lately. They are SO fun to make and to give. People love to receive them, and the possibilities for each state are endless. From state sports...like MN Vikings and Twins, to favorite vacation spots like Disney World in Florida....we have made a ton of them! It's so fun to add footballs, or Mickey Mouse ears, the state flowers and colors....you can see how it goes on and on! There are lots of ideas for whatever state you live in....you can find yours here.
I was born and raised in a small town in Minnesota, land of 10,000 lakes. There are lakes everywhere, and of course fishing is a HUGE deal in our area. Locals and tourists are always out on the lakes fishing...right now..... on the ice..... in fish houses! Brrrrrr! It IS lots of fun though.
For this card, I used a bunch of CL fishing dies. I started out with some fish patterned paper cut out with the rectangle stitch and cut tool, and added the canoe and fishing pole.
Then I adhered the state, and added the sentiment with some cute bobbers and oars:
I also tucked in a few pine branches....we have a ton of those around here too!
Cheery Lynn dies used:
Fishing Set B648
Fishing Boat set B649
Old Barn Board B439
Pine Branches B146
As you can probably tell by this post, I REALLY like making state cards...especially from Minnesota!
Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!
