Greetings from Wisconsin

I was born and raised in Wisconsin so this is my Home Sweet Home.  This is the card I made for the Home Sweet Home challenge at Krafty Girls.  I decided that I wanted my card to look like a Greetings from postcard.  I think it turned out great.

I printed the Greetings from on the blue cardstock from my computer.  I used Designer's Calendar and the Cricut Craft Room to make the Wisconsin cut-out.  I slanted it using Cricut Craft Room.  The cheese block and cow are both from the cartridge From My Kitchen.  I made the grass by welding a rectangle and the grass icon on the Pooh and Friends cartridge.

I have to say that this card turned out to be way cuter than I thought it would be.

Card Base: A2-4 1/4 x 5 1/2" (kraft cardstock)
Layer: 3 3/4 x 5" (light blue cardstock)
Wisconsin Title: 1 1/2" (welded & slanted using CCR)
Cow: 2 1/2" (page 75)
Cheese: 1" (page 43)

Have a Magical Day!!
