Jackson Father's Day Card



Wow, it has been a long time since I have been able to sit and create.   I needed a quick Father's Day card and just happened to have the new Jackson paper line by Close To My Heart waiting to be cut.  It almost seems this card should be a Throwback Thursday, while my papers are new....my stamp sets are from way back! Not to mention I pulled out a chalk set that is easily 20 years old to add some color.  I created my card with the help of the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.


I kept my card clean and simple...which makes for ease of mailing.  I could not resist adding in a little texture with some leftover burlap.  Burlap does not get thrown away in this craft room......every little snippet gets put aside for some use in the future. I added a few leftover strands for some added texture.



I love the added detail of the arrow designed paper, which is actually a zip strip included on the 12x12 Jackson paper.  These little zip strips are great for adding borders to your scrapbook pages and a little something extra to your card designs.

All supplies by Close To My Heart:
D1283 Say it in Style Stamp Set-Retired
D1298 Beautiful Things Stamp Set-Retired
B1467 You Mean the World to Me Stamp Set
G1094 Jackson Scrapbooking Kit
Z2114 Cocoa Ink
Burlap Ribbon
Chalks

I have also entered my card in the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks-Father's Day

Thanks for stopping by!
