Catered Crop - America’s Dairyland

After I created my first card for the Catered Crop recipe swap, “Map It”, I had another idea for a card and I just had to make it.

I stumbled across a link that allows you to print maps of each state.  After playing around with the setting on my printer, I printed a map of Wisconsin, my home state, at my printer’s 4x6 setting on white card stock.

I added a heart punched out of scrap paper and added it to the part of where I live.   Cute and easy – my favorite kind of card.

Don’t forget to stop by the Catered Crop to link up your “Map It”creation.


Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

    Hey, another great map card! I was scrounging around look for some map themed dp after I saw your first card, but , alas, I don;t have any! I am still inspired though! I like the clean lines and simplicity of this design! Nice work! Thanks for stopping by our house at 613 Avenue Create!

    What a great card using a printed map. I had a hard time finding "map" thing from my stash. If I knew the like you gave earlier, I'd love to use it on my project. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, May

    I know this is an older post, but I just came across it and I love it! The reason being is that I'm from Wisconsin as well. I couldn't tell if you were marking Milwaukee as your hometown or not, but that's where I'm from. Let me know if you are from the same area!

    Peace & Luv,
